For 21 days, I took pictures of all of the Buddhas that have come to live in and around our home. It is now a screensaver on my computer. It inspires me every day. Feel free to download the images for your own screensaver.
So my question is….why not expand the practice to 100 days?
I’d like to introduce you to Libby Stanford.
Libby is the daughter of a colleague of mine who started a 100 Day Blog: Life with Libby. “Today one of my teachers gave us a an unwritten assignment, to do one thing for one hundred days. It doesn’t matter what it is, you just have to do it for one hundred days. Something as simple as smiling to someone in the hall is acceptable, as long as you are diligent.” Libby’s blog is a collection of short stories that have been delightful to read. Today is Day 100.
In addition to celebrating Libby’s accomplishment, I thought it would be a good way to inspire others to take up the same challenge. Libby is a high school senior. She did it. So can you. During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, why not commit to doing something for yourself. Something creative. Something doable. It’s a great way to learn about the power of perseverance. If you can do something like this for 100 days, imagine what would happen if you applied yourself to other challenges?
“I think back to the countless times I have quit something I started and I wonder how that even happened. All it took to do this was a decision that I would not give up. It was so unbelievably easy, but I know that me from 100 days ago would be reading this in disbelief. One hundred days is not a long time. It went by so fast and I can’t believe its gone.” Libby Stanford
By the way, creating is always better when shared with others. Share your passion. Share a connection. Have a family craft day. Just create with someone!
What will you do for 100 Days?
Oh. And Take a moment to give Libby a high five for her accomplishment.
How creating works by hand opens the mind, establishes a sense of self and brings peace.
