Autumn is always a time of change for me; traditionally, of course, with the back to school vibe of new shiny shoes and text books. Being an Autumn baby the new year starts for me here, and the hues of orange brown and red really resonate for turning over a new leaf.
6 years ago, pretty much to this weekend, this happened. I like to check in with myself and see how far I have come since then (amazingly far), what has happened (so much! ) and who I am as a person – all in all, most is unrecognisable.
To keep things moving and to challenge myself this Autumn I am setting myself a new challenge.
Simply this: do something new, every single day. For a year.
It might be something as simple as listening to a new radio channel, wearing a different nail colour. Maybe it’s ordering a new wine rather than the usual Merlot. I have a list to get myself started and there are lots of things I want to try: bikram yoga, wall climbing, dance classes, maybe it’s new food, new towns, new style, new music.
I want to see what happens when I push myself in new directions on a subtle level, every day.
Also I am throwing it open to you all to give me things to try. Keep it clean….I am open to new ideas.
I will record it on the blog and Dexterous Diva Facebook, Instagram and Twitter under #newdiva365Want to join me in a challenge? Come along for the ride, let’s see where we go!
