Consider these words by Marianne Williamson:
Are you ready for some alone time? Grab your laptop, iPad, diary, journal, or a notebook and spend some time reflecting on these last 3 weeks. Here’s some questions to get your creative juices flowing. I’ll post these as discussion and reflection questions as well in The No Spend Challenge Facebook group.
1. What have you learned about yourself?
2. What have you learned about others?
3. What all did you accomplish cleaning this week?
4. What were you inspired by this week?
5. What has been the biggest struggle this week?
6. Where were you tempted to (and where did you) cheat?
7. What are your goals for next week?
Only about one more week to go! We can do this! Time to buckle down and stick to the plan. Are you ready?
