I started the "Two Things" challenge two days ago. I used the first two days to buy a plant and a pot for it. I've been feeling that I want to "put down roots" in a couple of areas of life. I purposely got bright yellow tulips. (In chakras, yellow is associated with assertiveness and power.) According to Feng Shui they are in the "Knowledge and Wisdom" part of my house.
I used other tasks to do bathroom cleaning. (My bathroom is in the "Wealth and Prosperity" Feng Shui section.) Today I used one task to drink two glasses of water and the other to finish reading an astrology book. The water is because my doctor told me I should be drinking six glasses of water a day. I got to the point where I wasn't having any water at all, which was making me feel really guilty! I wanted to do something concrete about that. I am reading the astrology book for a class that I am taking. I am supposed to read 25 books by October, and so far I have read five. (It worked out to 25 pages per day the last time I checked.)

My friend Nelly over at ChallengeYourselfToSuccess.com has been doing challenges for months, and they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so...
I just finished a 16-week challenge to do morning pages every day. Morning pages are three pages written in longhand on any topic, and are defined in Julia Cameron's book "The Artist's Way." I ended up missing only one day in the whole 16 weeks. Yay!
My next challenge is called "Two Things." Every day I pick two things to do in the morning, and I have to do both of them by the end of the day. Naturally, these are not intended to be things that will take a lot of time. Also I'm giving myself the day off on Saturdays and Jewish holidays. The challenge runs until May 1, 2012.
