This challenge was a long time in the making. Not only am I an overachiever, but I tent to overextend myself, which means that I sometimes fail to plan vacations and periods of rest. Given the recent hectic state of my life, I was in desperate need of relaxation.

It was awesome. I went for walks, read books, and watched TV. But something unexpected happened.

I realized I was dissatisfied with my life.

I’d suspected as much for some time, but it wasn’t until I had a full week to evaluate my life that I realized I was heading in the wrong direction. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed my Journey of a Thousand Mistakes and learned much from the countless challenges I gave myself, but the work involved far outweighed the benefits. As such, I decided to put an end to my journey.

What now?

I’m not sure what my next challenge will be, and I don’t want to announce anything as I have yet to figure out my next move. However, I’m contemplating trying to tackle my fears and living into the discomfort that comes with braving the uncertainties of life. I’ve also gotten a few messages from the universe that it’s time for me to embrace the unknown. I’m not sure what the future has in store, but I’m looking forward to finding out.

Thanks for joining me on this amazing journey, and as usual, don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

Until next time,
