31 Days Of Memories : A Reflection Challenge
It’s Day 2 of the 12 Days of Blogmas. Have you downloaded your free Blogmas e-book yet? If you have then you’ll know what this post is about. If you haven’t, don’t worry, it’s not too late. Simply join the Free VIP Buds resource library to get access to the ebook, and any other past or future ebooks.
Can you believe there are only about four weeks of 2020?! I don’t know about you, but I love reflecting on my year during this time. I’m sure it’s easy to list off all the bad that happened this year, but we aren’t going to do that. It does us no good.
What I’m Doing Instead
Instead, I decided to do a challenge where I focus on the good parts of 2020. It’s called 31 Days of Memories: A Reflection Challenge. Each day you reflect on a good thing that happened this year. It can be anything you want it to be. By doing this I believe it will improve our mindset about this year. I’m doing this challenge, will you do it with me?
I’ve made it super simple for you to join along. In the Blogmas ebook I created two different ways to do this challenge. You can use photos, or journal each memory.
31 Days of Memories FAQ
I’m sure you have a few questions before the reflection challenge starts. I’m answering them all here. If none of these answer the question you have, leave a comment on this post. I’ll answer it there for you.
When does the challenge start?
The 31 Days of Memories challenge will start on December 1st and go throughout the whole month.
What if I can’t think of 31 different memories?
I’m not denying that this reflection challenge may get harder towards the end. I’m most likely going to be struggling as well. Here are some ideas that I have to help me come up with ideas.
- Write it out: Sometimes it helps me to make lists. Even though I don’t plan on knowing all 31 memories on December 1st, being able to jot down the ones I remember will hopefully refresh my brain to other good things that happened.
- Look on past social media posts: If the brain jog doesn’t work, the next step is to look for physical proof. Enter social media. By scrolling through your feed from this year you may come across a memory you forgot about.
- Focus on the small: When I say memory I’m not only counting the big obvious memories, like going on a vacation or getting married. Small memories like going on a hike for the first time or chatting with a family member or friend that you hadn’t seen or heard from in a while. This makes coming up with 31 different memories more approachable.
- Make new memories: Like I said, I don’t plan on knowing all 31 memories by December 1st. This means that there is still time to make new memories. These new memories will give us those last few ones that I’m sure we will struggle with. So don’t forget to make some memories this month!
Do I need to share my memories?
No not at all. If you prefer to keep this reflection challenge private that is totally fine. Just download the ebook so you can have access to the pages where you can either add photos or write down your memory. However, if you do want to share, that’s awesome too. It’s all up to you, it’s your challenge.
I hope that clears up any questions you have. If not, feel free to ask your question in the comments. I’ll see you back here tomorrow for the third day of Blogmas.
