The 100 Day Project Days 16-20

The 100 Day project

The 100 Day Project days 16-20.  With today’s post this project is 1/5 of the way done.  It’s been refreshing to look at positivity during the day.  It’s making the practice easier.

Day 16 – April 18th, 2018

Maybe you have seen this.  Maybe you have not.  I found this video awesome.  She learned a Beyonce dance in days.  That is kick ass.  I don’t know this girl, but I want to be her friend.

 

Day 17 – April 19th, 2018

Two of my boys enjoying a sunny afternoon.  Boss got a car ride, note the smiling face.  P is now tall enough to put his hand out the window.  He loves it.  That late afternoon sun feels so refreshing.

Day 18 – April 20th, 2018

Five miles run today.  No pain + no stopping = fastest time in a while.  Considering I have a half marathon in a couple of weeks, this is a good thing.

Day 19 – April 21st, 2018

Family time.  We played outside and worked in the yard.  It’s finally spring and that feels amazing.

Day 20 – April 22nd, 2018

SPRING!  My favorite tree is in bloom.  The magnolia tree is vibrant and every year I’m in awe of their blooms.  I ran 8.6 miles and saw a number of them along my route.

 

The 100 Day Project Days 11-15

The 100 Day project

Welcome back.  We have made it through the first 10 days of the 100 Day Project.  It’s been nice to comment on something positive everyday.  It’s easy to get wrapped up in negativity online.  This is a growth exercise for me.  Life, stress, and challenges still happen to me everyday.  I’m choosing to focus on positivity and grace to help make a better impact.

Day 11 – April 13th, 2018

Friday the 13th is supposed to be spooky.  Instead I took the opportunity to get outside for a bit.  The weather was still nice.  I was aiming for 5-7 miles.  My body had other thoughts and really didn’t want to cooperate.  Still being able to get out and run three miles is good.

Day 12 – April 14th, 2018

It was a done of quilting fun with members of the IMQG.  We drove over to Ohio to see a Charlie Harper quilt exhibit.  It was nice to support other quilters and their work.  River City Quilt Guild licenses Charlie Harper’s work to be able to create these wonderful quilts.

Day 13 – April 15th, 2018

Today was IMQG meeting day.  As I’ve noted before these people get me and are truly amazing.  After meetings I’m inspired to come home and create.  We had a massive scrap swap and I found a few things that came home with me.

Day 14 – April 16th, 2018

Did you watch the Boston Marathon?  I watched Des Linden take the lead and not look back.  Her determination was inspiring.  She passed others and sustained her lead with some of the worst conditions the marathon had ever seen.  Not only that, she is the first American woman in over 30 years to win.

 

Day 15 – April 17th, 2018

Today someone shared this video.  It reminded me of my grandma.  That may sound odd, but I will explain later.

The 100 Day Project Days 1-5

On Instagram I started noticing the #the100dayproject floating around.  It got me thinking about what I could do for 100 days straight.  I don’t need a prompt to sew or add anything else creative.

Find out more about the project here.

Rather than post 100 days on Instagram, I want to write about grace and positivity.  Over the next 100 days I’m going to keep a journal/log on my blog.  There is grace and positive actions happening everyday around us.  I want to share my experiences.

Day 1 – April 3rd, 2018

Tonight at boxing, the teacher noted I was punching hard.  Me?  Punch hard?  I’ve gained strength and technique, so yeah, my punches have gotten harder.  It felt great to hear since I love this class.  Plus, this picture is pretty amazing.  This is before class while the lights were still out and the room was empty.  The ball was just sitting there perfectly.

Day 2 – April 4th, 2018

While scrolling through Instagram today I stumbled upon this post.  My immediate reaction is we need more of this.  Cheering on my friends and those that I may not know only helps.  Being a negative Nancy and trying to tear them down does not.  So root for someone today, I will be rooting for you!

I got you!

Day 3 – April 5th, 2018

Today I started something new that I have been contemplating for some time.  I got serious about my yoga practice.  8:30 a.m. was my first class in a studio that wasn’t an event, etc.  While the class was challenging, it was refreshing too.  Trust me I fell more than I want to admit in class.  I’m challenging myself to go as much as possible.

Day 4 – April 6th, 2018

We got free tickets to opening day of the Indianapolis Indians.  Someone is a swap group I’m in posted last minute.  We had been on the fence about going because of the weather.  Free made it more enticing.  During the game it was like sitting in snowglobe.  The snow was just sprinkling around us.  It was cold and beautiful at the same time.

Also, whoever let Elsa loose in Indiana can come collect her at any time.  It’s cold and snowy here.  It should be in the 40’s-50’s with sun.  Oh Anna, please save us.

Day 5 – April 7th, 2018

Celebrating a friend’s birthday.  Dinner, laughing, and finally cake!  Well not only cake but a whole dessert spread.  You guys, that cake was amazingly rich.  However those macaroons were delish and some came home with me.

I wish we could celebrate everyday like birthdays.  Instead let’s treasure those little moments.

Stay tuned for upcoming days.  While I was going to do this in bigger chunks of days I think it’s better to share in smaller bits.  Maybe it will inspire something positive in your day.
