Transform with 30

Ever look at your life and wonder where the excitement went? Even worse, have you ever looked back at your life and discover there was precious little excitement to begin with?

I’m one of the latter. Hi, I’m Jill, and let me tell you that living that way is incredibly boring and a pain in the ass. Playing it safe all my life prevented me from growing up and discovering myself. Boundaries? I have them by the buttload. Life lessons, not so much. So I came up with a way to further develop into the person I want to be for my daughter so that when the time comes, I’ll be able to help her grow as well.

I talk about it more here, but in essence, the Transformative 30 is a list of challenges that I’ve picked up while trawling through the web. The purpose of this experiment is to test my dedication, expand my mind, develop a better sense of emotional well-being and to push those thrice-damned self-erected boundaries.

And to make sure I don’t wimp out and choose only the easy ones, all those wonderful ideas now reside in my Mars Delivery Truck Tin of Doom Possibilities, so each month, I’ll give it a little shake and let the fun begin! On my list are:

  1. The List Challenge
  2. The Yoga Nidra Challenge
  3. The Partner Challenge
  4. The Oil-Pulling Challenge
  5. The Selfie Challenge
