Then came the hard part: figuring out how to fill the boxes. I thought about little candies, but lord knows I don't need the extra padding in the waistline this time of year. So what about fun activities? That sounded great, but could I really keep up with them with my already-busy schedule? Probably not. And then it hit me -- creative ideas and prompts that would keep me motivated throughout the month. Perfect! I've been in dire need of a kick in the ol' creative pants, so this could be just what I need. I knew I'd have to keep it simple to stay on track, so I came up with a list of 24 ideas (including some that are a little more involved for the weekends), printed them out, and then mixed them all up before I placed a prompt in each box so I'd have no idea what each day would bring.
And can I just say that I'm really really excited about this whole thing? It's been a long time since I've felt so motivated, and I'm only on Day 2! Even more, I've decided that I'm going try try hard to document the each day with a photo here on the blog (or, at the very least, on Instagram -- follow me at sarakate5!). So let's get this show on the road, shall we?
DAY 1 // Watch an inspiring documentary
Please excuse my shoddy manicure. It happens.
