We’ve just finished the Body Warrior Pledge challenge and, now, here’s another one because who doesn’t love a good challenge? Last month, I told you about my friend’s unique 40th birthday celebration. Now, I am plagarizing it and creating a 35 Gifts Challenge for the blog. To celebrate my upcoming 35th birthday, I am going to give 35 gifts of some sort to my community, and I’d love for you to join me in the 35 Gifts Challenge. Here’s the deal:
Between now and November 18th, complete one of the 35 Gifts in the list below or come up with your own gift of 35. Once it is done, come back on-line to share your experience with us as a comment on this post. Let us know what you did and, if you are so inclined, what you liked about your gift, why you chose it, how you felt choosing it, how you felt giving it, or what the gift means to you. Periodically between now and my birthday, I’ll draw names from all of the people who have commented for prizes– byootee tees, signed books, other books, etc. Cannot wait to see your responses!
Some 35 gift challenges:
Volunteer for 35 hours.
Give 35 compliments.
Give $35 to your favorite cause.
Pick up 35 pieces of trash.
Put 35 cents in the parking meter before leaving your spot.
