What Last Year’s Reading Challenge Taught Me

Last year was the first time I have ever taken part in a reading challenge. I’m generally one to shy away from structure and rules so mapping out a challenge each month was a challenge in and of itself!

I didn’t complete it.

But I did read every month, and still read a ton of books this year.

My main takeaway from doing this reading challenge was to simplify it. I thought having a theme each month would help me expand my library, but it ended up feeling like I had to do a ton of research for each theme and was not reading the books that were already on my bookshelf and on my to-be-read pile. I felt more like a failure if I read those books than a book that fit the theme of the month.

And that’s missing the entire point…

Which was simply to read and read and read!

So this year’s reading challenge is going to be much more simple.

Pick a book you want to and read it.

Sounds great, right?

I hope you’ll join me : )

  • “True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.

True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness.” @brenebrown

  • This year I signed on as a marketing columnist for my local newspaper The Mountain Ear!

My first column came out last week and talks about the beginning steps toward setting up a social media marketing plan for your small business. As a digital-driven millennial, it's fun to see my words in print. 😊
  • Decisions are not isolated events. They point us in the direction we're headed. While I feel like I've made a lot of progress this past year, there are things in my past that are holding me up. I'm making a commitment to let go of that hurt instead of trying to make it better. Saying goodbye was always the right decision. I just wish I'd realized that sooner.
