Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to walk away from something time consuming for a while.  I tried to unplug for a couple of days, which was actually nice.  It's a hard thing for me to do because I get really backed up on emails and start to feel overwhelmed when I do check in again.  However, I do think that there's a better compromise.  I think I can check my email a little less often.  It's easy to just sit down when you have a second, but then you can get stuck in that seat for longer than you intended.  Anyhow, it was good to give that all some thought.

This week's challenge is a challenge I posted here over a year ago, but it's a concept I've been thinking about a lot again recently.  So, here's an oldy but a goody :)

This week's challenge is to refrain from speaking negatively about others.  Yeah, that's a big one.  It's so easy to analyze other people's actions and make comments to others about them.  Sometimes it's just a little thing, but my mom used to make us evaluate whether what we were saying was kind, necessary, and true.  Yikes.  That cuts out a lot of conversation :)  For me there's a goal that's even bigger than this that I've been thinking about a lot lately.  I have come to the conclusion that is it really important for us to believe in each other - not to criticize or analyze, but to believe.  Believing in others helps them rise to their potential.  I have witnessed some amazing changes in others when someone chose to believe in them.  

If you'd like to share how last week's challenge went, just tell up about it in the comment section.  And thank you so much for visiting my blog.  You guys all really help, encourage, and uplift me.
