You Matter Challenge Week 3: Let it Go
We are already in the middle of the first month of the new year…did that make sense? I feel slightly confused…
Last Week: You Matter Challenge Week 2: Dream Big
Week 2 was pretty fun. I like dreaming ridiculous, crazy, dreams. It reminds me to have hope. It reminds me that there is more to life than the things we see everyday. It reminds me that there is something awesome to be found in letting our minds and hearts be free to imagine. It breaks past the limits the world has tried to set.
I am dreaming about changing and traveling the world. I am dreaming about being able to fly. I am dreaming about riding a giraffe… is that weird?
Here were some of the dreams that you guys shared with me:
“I tried to remember what I wanted to be when I was 5. I wanted to be a shark. Today I am in school for marine biology. Dreams do come true kids.” – Jonathon
“The challenge is to dream with no limitations. I dream about being happy. That’s my big dream right now.” – Anonymous
“I want to be a ninja princess! I want to save the world from evil! You said dream bigggg…” – Valerie
Shark! Ninja Princess! Happy! Great dreams guys.
All this dreaming is fun and it makes me feel like anything is possible.
Week three!! Are you ready for the week 3 You Matter Challenge.
Practice letting go of what others say and think about you.
Over the last two weeks, we have thought good things about ourselves, and we have opened our hearts to dreaming crazy big dreams. But both of those things require letting go of what others think or say.
It is okay to listen to your friends opinions and take advice, but it is not okay to let anyone’s judgments affect who you are or take away your confidence.
You get to decide who you are.
If I am being honest, I think this is one of the hardest challenges. I definitely struggle with letting go of what other people think about me. But I want to change that. Worrying about what other people think is not a good feeling.
Their words do not determine who you are and where you are going.
This week practice shaking off the haters and doing what feels right to you.
Do you think this will be a hard challenge too? Let me know what you think in the comments!! Remember, I will comment back and share my thoughts on the week.
