I've been reading a friends blog and I was inspired by her primary, but also by this 30 days of truth challenge she is doing. I want to encourage you to visit her blog, but I want to tell you first that although she will make you laugh and her writing is amazing, you will need to be prepared for some difficult, no, gut wrenching reading. She is honest, and she is looking for herself. She is not writing for you, she is writing for her, and she is dealing with past demons and the effects on her current life. Be warned that you are in for an amazing read, plenty of laughter and quite a few boxes of tissues along the way. My friend is Rebekah or Bekah and this is her blog http://rebekah2011.blogspot.com/2011/01/post-1-introduction.html
Now that you know where this started, here is the 30 days of truth. The idea is that you answer each question, 1 per day with the truth. Now you will see that some of these may be a bit offensive, if you think you are not going to like the question and/or answer, feel free to skip the post. I DO NOT sensor my comments, so please keep that in mind when responding. I will list the question in the title so you can avoid if you feel you need/want to.
Also because I am going to be traveling a few days this month (Yippee for seeing my husband graduate!) I will probably have to combine a few questions or miss days, but all questions will be answered.
That being said, this blog is also about victories, so I am going to do my best to put a positive spin or add what my victory has been or what I want it to be to each question as it applies. Some may not apply, some may be past victories, some may take a while for me to reach, so bare with me.
The questions are as follows:
Day 01-Something you hate about yourself
Day 02-Something you love about yourself
Day 03-Something you have to forgive yourself for
Day 04-Something you have to forgive someone else for
Day 05-Something you hope to do in your life
Day 06-Something you hope you never have to do
Day 07-Someone who has made your life worth living for
Day 08-Someone who has made your life hell, or treated you like shit
Day 09-Someone you didn't want to let go, but just drifted
Day 10-Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn't know
Day 11-Something people seem to compliment you on the most
Day 12-Something you never get compliments on
Day 13-A band or artist that has gotten you through on tough ass days (write a letter)
Day 14-A hero that has let you down (write a letter)
Day 15-Something or someone you cannot live without, because you have tried living without it
Day 16-Someone or something you definitely could live without
Day 17-A book you've read that changed your views on something
Day 18-Your views on gay marriage
Day 19-What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20-Your views on drugs and alcohol
Day 21-(scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you just got in a fight an hour ago. What do you do?
Day 22-Something you wish you hadn't done in your life
Day 23-Something you wish you had done in your life
Day 24-Make a playlist to someone and explain why you choose all the songs (just post title, artist and letter)
Day 25-The reason you believe you are still alive today
Day 26-Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so when, why?
Day 27-What's the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28-What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29-Something you hope to change about yourself and why
Day 30-A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself and why
I have to say, after typing all of these out (I purposely did not copy and paste so that I would have a better concept of what I would be getting into) I am not looking forward to putting all of this out there, but I know that writing helps me, and I think that this will help me delve into somethings that I have been avoiding and also at the same time make me look at some of the better things about myself too. So here's to exploring me and finding new and old victories.
