Authoring August — The Chose Your Adventure Challenge

Greetings and salutations from the second day of August 2021. I may be a day late in writing this but it is never too late to start.

I am putting forth an intention for this month out into the universe where I hope many others follow suit with the idea of Authoring your very own personal August. A month full of intention and intentional things. A month full of choosing my adventures.

Let me explain. For the month of August, I am going to be the author of my very own month. I am going to write my story this month, there will be no goals to work toward or things that just need to be done, everything is part of the story I want to tell for the month of August.

From the outside, it may look like a normal month where I will be working from home, going into the office, and taking time to do fun things but beneath it all, each day will be full of fun, adventure, romance, and straight-up silliness.

So all that mundane work that you think you have to get done, well flip that work on its head, it is now the work that helps you accomplish your dreams. Make that work into something that you personally would put out. Write those reports more poetically, add more flair into your presentations. Go above and beyond or put forth what you deem appropriate, you are the author so what outcome would you like to have when the clock strikes midnight on Tuesday, August 31st, 2021?

Take this month to do things that you want to do that you would not normally do as if you were able to write the great story of your life. What would you do differently if you knew that you could make anything happen for yourself?

Take control this month and start to write your life the way you have always wanted it to be written. The challenge here is how to take what is already laid out ahead of you and turn it into something that is purely you. This is your life and it is time you treat it as such and start to write your own journey.

Be the person that you want to be this month, the entire month, and see how you feel at the end of it all.

There are no real rules to this, just imagine your life as a story that you are reading and you get to pick the adventures, the struggles, and the way you handle each situation that gets thrown your way, kind of like a chose your own adventure but you get to write your own parts.

How will you author your month? What Story will you write for yourself this month?

I will be using the hashtag tag #authoringaugust for those who may want to follow along.

Have fun and have a great month!!!!
