project: stick with it | 1 month update

Since I launched my own ‘rule my world’ concept, project:stick with it, I’m proud to say that I am 100% completely SHOCKED that I stuck with it. Seriously. Like I told you in the first blog, I never stick with anything.

Well, I’m lying. Burger King and I had a good run for a good, 25 years or so. Speaking of, I haven’t had ANY fast food at all. That’s where about 85% of my 100% shock comes from. About 10% is the fact that I have stuck with eating healthy. The other 5% is just hot air.

Over the past couple years months, I have completely felt my creativity slipping away. I consider myself to be a pretty creative person, so this wasn’t going to work for me. I took a good look at what was wrong: I woke up exhausted every single morning. Our 3-year-old doesn’t sleep well. Didn’t feel like doing my hair. Because I’m going grey. Put on a hat. I like hats anyway, so why not. I wouldn’t wear anything cute or exciting. Because I didn’t do my hair, don’t tell me you don’t know what I’m talking about. Do you see what I was doing here?

Making excuses. For everything.

So instead, I decided to take my life my the balls, and live it!

Now, I wake up every morning exhausted — and get to work, the more I do, the more I want to do. I do my hair, in fact — I died it pink! Because why not? I’ll put on a hat if it goes with my outfit I’m wearing, because it’s going a be a cute one. No more excuses. Only reasons for doing it.

I’ve found some things that I can do that will help me stick with it along the way:

  1. I feel pretty when my nails are painted. There’s also something I like about typing with painted nails, am I the only one who understand this? But I hate chipped nails, which almost always happens. I have finally figured out how to actually keep my manicure on for more than a week. It may involve putting on 4 or 5 coats of nail polish, but damn, it works. I also use a No Chip Top Coat after the last coat, and then top it with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat at the end. This is my new strategy.
  2. Since dying my hair pink, I actually HAVE to do it everyday. You can’t walk around with ugly pink hair. Oh hell no. I’m going to keep up with the maintenance, but I also have to help it heal from the process with some Soy Renewal Creme Oil before I blow dry it. This helps a ton with the brittle feeling.
  3. I’m horrendous with ironing. Which means, I just don’t do it. Like, ever. Which brings me to the problem of looking through my closet in the morning and having nothing to wear. Everything is wrinkled and I refuse to iron it. Instead, I put it on to see what it looks like, then see if my flat-iron can fix it. If it can’t, it goes back on the hanger for the next time I try it on and flat-iron it. I’ve decided I’m going to start ironing on Sundays, so that it’s done and I can grab and go when getting dressed. Problem solved. Yes, I do know that I could have solved this problem a long time ago, but I was too busy making excuses about why I couldn’t.

How are you doing with your project: stick with it? Do you have any things that help you along the way? I love hearing from you!

Love, Megan.
