We are about to start our second week together in the Dopamine Challenge. Have you noticed any patterns in your behavior? Any inconsistencies? Any observations? What are the biggest challenges you’re facing in completing the challenge? How can our community help? I know how important accountability is for my own success. Knowing I have to publish my daily results is keeping me on my toes and my fingers at the ready! If you haven’t already, you may want to consider partnering with someone else to go through the experience together. If for no other reason – being accountable to someone other than yourself is important for success. Let me know how I can help.

I hope there is always something special for me about sleeping late on a Saturday morning. When we were kids, Saturday was the one day of the week my parents didn’t have to wake us up; we got up of our own accord – and early – to watch Saturday morning cartoons! I still love cartoons, but they no longer hold the influence over me they once did. Of course, sleeping late is a relative term, isn’t it? There’s always the next thing to get done, and getting my day started always energizes me. I let it all slide this morning, and enjoyed the comfort of the comforter a little longer.If you like this post, you can subscribe to receive regular doses of encouragement and inspiration to help you on your way:

I’m grateful, heading into week two, for a very positive dopamine change.
I’m paying attention.
How much I miss, simply by not paying attention.
And, I’m grateful for Christie who, on day 2 regarding meditation, wrote that she reads something and spends time thinking about what she read and its applicability in her life. That got me starting my day with a reading, then a reflection on its meaning, and how I should apply it. I look forward to that daily start and there’s no doubt that, already, it’s making a difference.
Thanks, Arminda (and Christie), for putting me back on that more positive track.
That’s right! Thank you for the reminder. I haven’t done that yet, and I’m going to write it down on my to-do list today to be sure I don’t miss another opportunity for growth and reflection.
Thanks, Karen! I love reading all of your comments. I feel your joy and love and gratitude with each post. I’m grateful that Arminda has such a wonderful friend in her life (and that she’s willing to share you with us!)
