A different kind of challenge – pushing boundaries

Podcast - isolated word decorative lettering text

I wanted to try something different for 2017.  Last year Wanda, over at A Wandafulthing, and I did a monthly craft challenge.  It was fun putting my thinking cap on, checking out Pinterest and getting glue gun, paint and paper out.

This year I want to challenge myself in a few different ways, still on a monthly basis, so hope you join in.  The first Wednesday of the month I want to put my challenge out there and go for it. The challenges I’m thinking about range from crafts, to book club, to exploring new places and trying new things.  I would love to hear in the comments what you have tried, what you think and suggestions on how else can we push our boundaries.

For the first challenge I want to go with is podcasts.  I want to check out a few new podcasts this month.  If you have any favorites please let me know in the comments – I would love to check them out.  I’ve included two podcast series I have listened to and a few I am planning on checking out this month.

  1. Dear Sugar  “radically empathic advice” from Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond.   I have been listening to Dear Sugars for a few years and enjoy the variety and honesty of Cheryl and Steve.
  2. Oh No Ross and Carrie – I listened to Ross and Carrie infiltrate Scientology.  The tag line is “we show up so you don’t have to”.  Just be prepared for frank discussion and observations.
  3. Vibrant Happy Women – I haven’t listened to this podcast, but I am putting it on my list for the month.  The title alone appeals to me!!
  4. Bloggers are weird – another podcast I haven’t listened to but looks like a variety of individuals talking on various topics.

I am planning on listening to a few episodes of Vibrant Happy Women and Bloggers are weird in the next month.  I’ll report back the first Wednesday in February on the podcast challenge.  Along with giving us our next challenge.

I’m excited to start something new and hope you’ll come along for the ride.

You can always start now!
