Besides the daily positivity practice tasks, I was doing Daily challenges. Instead of that though, I’ve decided to make a thirty day challenge. I want to know how many of you plan to do this challenge, so I ask that for numbers one, ten, fifteen and twenty-eight, submit your answers to my ask box.
You can submit all of yours if you like, but I’d like some feedback on this thirty day challenge. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
And don’t forget, in addition to these challenges, every day you should:
-Write five positive things about yourself and why they are positive.
-Write one thing or more that you usually find negative about yourself and why, and how it is or can be positive today.
(ex. I don’t usually like my hair because… but today I feel…)
-Write about one negative experience you had today, and how you could have made it a more positive one.
(ex. My brother and I fought because… I could have…)
-Write about one positive experience you had that could have been negative, and how you made it positive.
Introduce yourself and explain why you’re doing the challenge. How do you feel right now, and what do you expect to feel when you finish it? Do you expect anything to change? What, specifically, do you want to change? Do you think this challenge will help with that at all?
Let someone know what you plan to do. Let them know they are welcome to join you, or give their support. Why did you choose the person/people? Do you think they can help you, or do you think they can use the help?
Let go of something negative. This could be apologizing, even if you still think you’re right, forgiving someone/yourself for something, forgetting about something that you really can’t change, stop punishing yourself for a past mistake, etc.
Learn something new. Something that takes time and practice, that will make you feel accomplished, even if you don’t think you’re the best at it. Why did you choose to learn it? Do you think it’ll be challenging? How long do you think it should take to get good at it?
Indulge yourself with something you enjoy. Something positive that makes you feel good, and that’s still good for you. Have some chocolate, take a hot bubble bath, spend time with friends, read, dress up nice even if you don’t have somewhere to go, etc. How do you feel after doing it? Is it something you wish you can do every day? What’s stopping you?
Smile. Find reasons to, and if you can’t, make them. Make other people smile. Practice smiling in the mirror. Does it affect your mood at all? Does making other people smile make you feel good?
Stop procrastinating. Get that project done, clean your room, finish your homework, etc. Why were you procrastinating? Did you get it done, or just get it started? How do you feel now?
Let someone you love know how much you appreciate them, even if you think they already know. Why did you choose the person/people? How did it make them feel when you told them? How did it make you feel?
Celebrate everything. Pay attention to the small things you never really think about, that give you something to be happy about. Write up a list of these things, and keep it somewhere you’ll see it when you really need it. What did you celebrate? How do you feel about these things?
Have any of the challenges made you feel better? Have you done them all so far? Pick one and repeat it today. Why did you choose that one? Do you feel any different doing it a second time? Is it what you expected?
Take a risk today. Do something for yourself that you’ve always wanted to do. Share a secret, confront someone about something that’s been bothering you, share your feelings with someone, etc. How did you feel? Do you regret it?
Make the day as positive as possible. For every negative thought, write down a positive thought. Do positive things. How challenging was this? How do you feel now, and how did you feel when you started?
Recreate a positive past experience. Go to the some place you enjoyed, watch a movie you saw only once, read a book again, etc. What’s different about it this time? What did you expect? Did you enjoy it the way you did before?
Talk to someone you’ve unintentionally lost contact with. Let them know what you’re doing and why you chose them as the person for this challenge. How do you feel after speaking to them? Do you think you’ll keep contacting them more often?
Put your practicing to the test. Come up with something positive to do on your own. What did you do? How did coming up with your own make you feel? Can you do it more often?
Do something creative to let out your feelings. Paint, draw, write, glue things together, etc. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece and you can keep it to yourself if you want. What feelings did you put into it? Is it evident when you look at it? How do you feel now? Is this something you usually do, or could it be, to get your feelings out?
Write down a promise to yourself that you intend to keep. Why do you feel you have to promise yourself in order to do it? Do you think you will keep it? When do you think you will fulfill the promise?
If you made any New Year resolutions count the ones you’ve accomplished. How do you feel about them? What about the ones you haven’t completed? Try to accomplish what’s left.
Try to go the day with out any negative thoughts or comments. Use your list of happy things, and the person/people you’re doing this challenge with, or that you’ve enlisted as your support to help you. How hard was this? Do you think you can do it again tomorrow? How do you feel about it now?
Like day ten, pick another challenge and try to do it again. Why did you choose that one? Do you feel any different doing it a second (or a third) time? Is it what you expected?
Do the 100 Breaths Challenge. What did you think about as you were doing it? How did it make you feel? Would you do it again?
Go back to day four. Have you been practicing? How have you improved from when you first started? Do you like what you chose, or do you want to move on to something else?
Make a new friend. Let them know that you’re trying to make positive changes in your life. What did you learn from this person? Do you think it’ll be a lasting friendship?
Do something special for the people in your life. Let them know why they deserve it. How do they feel about it? How do you feel? Do you think they’ll do something special like that for you?
Time to test your skills again. Come up with something positive to do on your own. What did you do? How did coming up with your own make you feel? Can you do it more often?
Set a new goal and work on accomplishing it. Let it be something that makes you happy that you didn’t think you could do before. Why do you believe you can do it now? What is it going to take to accomplish it?
Push yourself. If you’re holding back for fear of failure, ridicule, or just not knowing what will happen, do it anyway. What happened? Did you overcome your fears? Did you manage to do it? If not, was it as bad as you thought it would be?
Evaluate yourself. How do you feel about the challenges you’ve been doing? Did you complete all of them? If not, why did you skip some? Which ones did you find easiest? Why? Which ones did you find hardest? Why? Which ones are you confident about completing again? How have you changed since starting this challenge?
Do something for yourself today. Relax, have fun and enjoy life.
Write a list of positive changes you hope to make in your life. Don’t let anything stop you from completing your list.

Since I have time to kill, thanks to dissociation plus the fact that I’m deaf and can’t hear PA announcements plus the fact that I decided to sit out of sight of the gate causing me to miss the flight (at least the lady waived the change fee when I told her the situation and directed me to a nearby hotel with super cheap rooms due to the fact it’s under renovation right now and therefore has no gym or anything like that - I gave her a jalapeno chocolate bar in return)
Follow me there
OK, bye, I’m going to a “diner” (sometimes I miss NJ for its actual diners) coz I’m hungry and it is no longer too hot to walk (I’ve been in southern Arizona, by the way, and it’s rare to see a day below 100F) and I am in the middle of the Andalite Chronicles, which is amazing.
BTW The Animorphs is legit the best YA series in the entire world, and I need to finish it coz I stopped at like #35. I mean, seriously, one of the main characters (Tobias) is an orphan who is shuttled back and forth between two substance abusing relatives who don’t care about him at all, so they don’t notice he disappears when he becomes a hawk forever, and book #3 is all about how he’s suicidal because he can no longer do human things, but then his best bud Rachel is like, “A person is not his body” and “You’ve got your friends to support you” and he learns how to appreciate the awesome parts of being a hawk while also being a human on the inside. Seriously, it’s an amazing series and you should go read it now if you haven’t already (though the ghostwritten books kinda suck, but that’s to be expected).
OK I’m hungry bye
Update… The stuff I wrote probably wasn’t true (thanks mj + ssris!)… What is more likely is that my mom gave us xanax to try to make us feel better with no malicious intents. But yea that combination of mj (we’re talking about crazy amounts of mmj being consumed) and ssris (which I shouldn’t be on, they make me confused and irritible and tearful and suicidal and etc) made me a little crazy. I’m being transferred to an lgbt substance abuse facility, which will be a much better match for me because then I can talk about stuff like I can’t have sex sober because I end up crying, or focusing only on the other person, or dissociating, etc I am excited! There are other trans people there, and I can finally get a check up on stuff like reproductive health… When I get home I’ll probably delete this tumblr and start a new one, Jfyi. Xoxo y’all
And that’s the end of the queue.
Bye, see you all in like a month. <3
