Last December… or was it December 2019? Well, one of the December’s within the last two years, I decided to just let almost everything go and see where it took us. I won’t get into the details, but that challenge was broken about a month later.
So it’s December 1st 2021 today and I figured with the problems Amber have been dealing with lately, I’m going to take up the Be Awesome challenge. The difference between the previous one and this one, is that in that one, I was testing to see what would happen. This time, I am doing it because I want Amber to be less burdened by my needs and aspirations. Indeed, it may still pop up every now and then, ultimately, I will redirect all of that negativity productively. My issue is my critical temperament. That’s the one thing I have to figure out.
In short, this challenge by its mechanics is about doing what needs to be done, regardless of whether Amber exists or not, on the notion that this household requires regular upkeep. So being lazy is out of the question, but I won’t keep up with everything 100%. At the very least, about 75% is good enough. I won’t list the exact details on what I will do here, because I feel it’s too restrictive. I need to be able to do things based on the dynamics of the day, and not based on a box of rules.
First things first… Christmas Tree…
