Oh dear too many distractions – finding it a challenge to write today. The Buddhists call it ‘monkey mind‘ – sound familiar? You start with a single thought and before you know it, that thought has climbed through your brain like a monkey on a mission! One thought has become a thousand and all of a sudden I can’t construct a sentence, let alone a story… Lucky inspiration has struck! My ever present muse, the wonderfully sophisticated and Oracle of all knowledge – Google – has come to my rescue! Thank you Larry and Sergey, I am grateful!
In a bid to get the creative juices flowing, I inadvertently found my next post – 33 ways to be creative (unfortunately my searching skills seem to be a bit off today and I am unable to find the author of the picture attached, if anyone knows, please contact me or if you are the author, please get in touch). It’s an inspiring list, just take a look below. It’s not only for the ‘creative type’ – it’s for everyone… And to prove that, I’ve come up with a challenge for you: print out the picture below and stick it to your mirror. There are 33 items on the list, commit to doing each one of them (one a day) for 33 days. Make it a competition with your other half/friends, get your mum and dad involved, tell the children (you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see how infectious the optimism of children is). And at the end of each day, share with <insert whoever here> and find out how the task for the day went. Challenge your Status Quo and see the difference it makes in your life. My personal favourite on the list is number #25, I try to do this every day. How about you?
Use the ‘Don’t be shy, say something‘ box to let me know if you’ve taken the up The Striped Couch’s 33 day challenge. And as usual if you want any advice or guidance, just drop me a message and I’ll get back to you.
Go for it!
