I was scrolling through Pinterest – as I do every spare moment I get – and I came across a challenge, which I’m sure you can tell by the title of this post is the 30 days of self improvement challenge!
After an absolutely draining weekend with a family emergency and meeting that went from 9am through till 10:30pm, and then continuing on to move half of my house to my mum’s today, I have been sitting here for the past hour feeling like complete rubbish about everything, including myself!
So seeing this post was a god send!
I will be posting and completing every challenge on my blog and I nominate anyone who reads this to do the same!
DAY 1 – Share something that you are proud of today!
Today, I am proud of my parents.
After an extremely tumultuous separation and a family meeting from hell yesterday, they both put their differences aside for the entire day to help me move my house back to my mum’s.
From 8am in the morning dad was over helping me move furniture back and forth to mum’s and even helped with her garden and disassemble a few pieces of her own in the house (spare beds etc).
Not only was I proud that dad put aside his pride to help me and even my mum, I was proud that the two of them could hold civil conversations and actually get on for the first time in over 3 years of bitterness.
There are SO many other things that I’m proud of, and I’m assuming that I am supposed to share something that I am proud of about myself, but today was so unexpected and it made me appreciate my parents even more than I already do.
PS. If I had to pick something that I am proud of for myself it would be that I am starting to really take responsibility for my own actions and flaws and that I have been making a conscious effort to overcome said flaws.
