So my January challenge was to look into other banks to set up an account with.
*Cue the sad trumpets*
I didn’t even bother to look into it. Why would I? Nobody my age actually likes banks. We don’t trust them. And I have a good thing going with CIBC. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
One thing I realized is that I need to pick challenges that actually interest me. Take my February Challenge, for example. I really wanted to start treating my body better by being more consciously aware of what I’m fuelling it with. So I decided to make this month all about eating healthier. And it’s working. I’m passionate about this. Once I made the decision to start eating better, I don’t even want sweets anymore. Sure, I’ve had a couple slipups here and there, but it’s all about forgiving yourself.
And I’m not even worried about being surrounded by sweets on Valentine’s Day. Bring it on.
The lesson here is to fill your time with things that actually interest you or will make your life better. It’s all about being honest with yourself. The rest is just noise.
