The Challenge of a Lifetime

2014 is shaping up to be challenging already.  Not because of this challenge blog, but the challenge lies within life itself.

It’s the big things. It’s the little things. It’s everything. My children are growing up. My husband and I are getting older. Our house is in continual need of repair. So is our cars. My waistband expands. My checking account shrinks. My desires grow.

And it’s not just me.

The world fights with words and with weapons. A world of despair and desperation faces challenges of life day to day. Some challenges may seem superficial to me, but to the ones facing them, the situations hold life and death. Others face challenges that haunt my nightmares as an adult; and those who are facing them are just children.

My goal for this year’s challenge blog is presenting it’s own challenge: how do I sort through life and pick one challenge? My answer: I won’t.

I will choose life in its entirety  as my challenge.

How can I best live it, love it, dream it, do it, celebrate it, OWN IT!

My challenge of a lifetime this year will be to take on challenges (some 31 days and some longer) to tackle the major areas of my life: Spirit, Health, Emotions, and Finance.  I’ve got a vision board and everything!

Right now I am in still working on the health aspect. I have until February 14th to lose my 6 pounds of excess that I have ingested. I will also be training for a 5K in March. (OK marathoners, I know it isn’t much TO YOU, but to me it may as well be 100 miles). But like I said in articles past, I need challenges in chunks that I can actually digest. So here it goes. I will post to you every couple of weeks so that I can stay accountable. I’ll let you know what I am reading or learning. Please check my Facebook page or tweet @justpeachiemenu . Connect with me on this journey will ya?

I hope you will!

Go on! Take the challenge! We’ll be


About Eydie

Call me a buffet style personality...A little of this and a bit of that topped off with chocolate...a LOT of chocolate! I am a wearer of many hats and often as sections life blend messily into each other, I find it necessary to remind myself there is a reason to find joy and meaning in this crazy mess. Life is full of purpose and my purpose connects with yours. So, I would like to connect to as many people of purpose as possible. I hope you're one of them! Let's see what we can make with each beautiful step of life.

  1. So true! I also need to break down challenges in bite-sized chunks. (And I’m training for a 5k as well!) Good luck to you as you pursue your dreams! (I’m visiting from the FF blog hop.)
