I started this challenge on June 18th. It was a simple attempt to make this summer a good summer. I had some fears that I would feel lonely and it would bring me back to how I felt in quarantine. Being single, it's easy to get into a rut and not get out there, so this was my solution.
I thought that I'd complete a challenge every few days...instead, I have completed one each day. I have added more challenge cards too and I am having FUN!!! Some of the challenges are real risks for me but many are just things that make me happy. I get this feeling of accomplishment when I complete a challenge.
Yesterday I had plans to complete a different card and at the last minute plans were postponed. The challenge cards helped me so much because I dove back into the pile and picked out another one.
This summer I'll be visiting my niece and nephew (and the rest of my family). I am bringing my cards and I'm going to invite them to make some cards for us to complete together. I already have my card for our time together and I can't wait!
How is your summer challenge going? Haven't started yet? It's never too late!!
