2019: Week Five Challenge

Revenge of Eve- Week Five Challenge

Hey, dolls!


*crickets* I apologize for not being as active as I usually am. I have stayed busy making all kinds of things that I cannot wait to share (once I do the damn photo shoot). My usual schedule of posting on Mondays and Thursdays hasn’t been adhered to as much I would like but… That’s life. I will be going out of town later this afternoon so let’s get the ball roll’n!


Revenge of Eve- Week Five Challenge

Week Five’s List:

List the best choices you have made in your life so far.

Take action: Take five minutes each morning this week to reflect on your list before you start your day. You have so much to take joy in; trust in your inner wisdom.

Okay.. I have to admit, Im not feeling this book like I thought I would. It doesn’t challenge me per se. I don’t see it having much more of a future here on R.O.E. I realized that I prefer to do more original content as far as a challenge goes. And lists to bring happiness…?? seems fruitless. With that said this challenge will be the last from the book. That’s not to say I will not come up with a new challenge. In fact, I will mimic the list idea but I will put a spin on it. 🙂 Give me the week to think about how I’ll add some Candace flare to it.

My making of products is such a process and one that requires many layers of work. Cutting, embellishing, binding, folding, gluing, and once all of those have been completed, dry time. I do have a few products ready but I am beginning to notice that maybe I am not. I haven’t made the time to do a photo shoot and we make time for what we want in life, right? I want to sell the items I just have a picture in my head of how I will present them and Im not there….yet. I need to get my ass in gear because I need to make my money back but I will not put them up until I am ready.

Life seems to be truck’n along just fine for me at the moment. Kid has a play-off game in a town about 2 hours away. They won their first play-off game Friday in Baton Rouge which was exciting as hell. I will keep my fingers crossed that anxiety doesn’t move in this game. That’s the weird thing about anxiety, its timing. Instead of wasting my time preparing for something that may not happen, I will focus on enjoying the drive and cheering the team on.

As far as last weeks list, the things that get me out of my head, would be…. no such thang!

Stay tuned..

Peace Out~

2019: 52 Week List Challenge

Oops!

Yesterday was Monday and it slipped my mind to post this week’s list!! Like, it literally never crossed my mind. Not once. I apologize if any of you were waiting and I hope you were not holding your breath! Without further ado, week four’s list…


Week Four – 52 Week List Challenge

List the things that get you out of your head

Take action: Plan an hour or two this week to do one or a few of these things that put your mind at peace.

  • First and foremost credit the author of the book: Moorea Seal because legally, you have to and morally because you don’t wanna be a shitty person. Her work is copyright
  • Link to the beautiful post I publish each week Don’t know how? Ask and I will explain. Invite your friends. Let’s have happy feeds in 2019. Can you imagine the mental health community…happy? It would be a beautiful thing. Why? because we fuck’n deserve it.
  • Use the hashtag #52HappyLists and #achallengeforhappiness, please
  • And last but not least…. enjoy this challenge. Integrate it into your life. Allow it to make small changes in your day, welcome it. We are worth it ya’ll and that is what I have come to know in my heart. Every one of us is worthy, including me.

Last weeks list was better than the week before.

On my list of things I am really good at, I listed 7 things. I wouldn’t say I am really good at anything per se but I do these well:

  • Bartend
  • Wait tables
  • write
  • observation
  • Uno (card game lol)
  • I have good hand-eye coordination
  • connecting with children

Of all of these, there is only one that I would say comes naturally and that is my connection with kids. I have always loved children and find them much easier to deal with compared to their adult counterparts. Writing comes easy, however, I can see how it has improved with practice.

How about you? What things are you naturally good at?

I plan to do all in my power to have a reflective week. For nearly three week’s things were off track. I am not going to let that get me down. I started the reorganizing of my studio and plan to complete it this week. I found that having my personal materials in with the materials I use for selling items I get distracted from the task at hand. I have separated 80% of it and love the way it is coming together, so much so, you can expect a post on it soon.

I hope everyone has a good week! Toodles ~

2019: Week Challenge Week 3

Hey, Hey! I hope this post finds you all doing well. I had an interesting week, to say the least. Laying low more than normal and I am ight with that. How about you? Busy, lazy, peaceful??? I will share about my week in a post following this one. Make sure to check it out 🙂

Last week’s list wasn’t my favorite which left me with a blah list. I have a routine and because I am ocd, I love it, all of it. Yes, at the moment, I do not like it at all (my schedule is changing with my life) but it is becoming more and more apparent that I need to change it up. I will.

But on to this week’s list… Lol


52 Lists for Happiness

2019 Challenge-Revenge of Eve
Join us? You can catch the first list and second list

List the things that you are really good at

Take action: Underline the things that you had to work for to become good at it, and circle the things you feel come naturally to you. Do any of these things overlap? Just like happiness, it’s already within you. It just takes practice to experience daily.

Follow the following if you decide to create a post about making your list.

The take action part of this week’s list caught my attention. I don’t generally consider myself good at much but there are a few things I can come up with. It will be neat to see if they intersect or overlap. And which I feel I am a natural at or required practice. Hmmmm We’ll see what I come up with. If you join in, share with me or not. If this isn’t something you enjoy doing I understand sitting this one out. But it’s going on for a year so you may find you’d like to join in. Do not rule it out! 😉

I haven’t said this in a while but Thank you for being a wonderful community of support and encouragement. I am not nearly as active as I have been for the last 18 months but I still know who my loyal followers are and your presence in my life means a lot. I realize the importance of stepping away and looking out for myself and I know you welcome me back any time with open arms so again, THANK YOU.

Chow,

Who is Candace Lynne??

2019: 52 Week Challenge Week Two

Hey ladies and gents. I am looking forward to change weeks and let last week go! It was a rough one for me. I hope everything went well for all of you.

Week Two- Revenge of Eve

If you are just joining us, you have made it in perfect time. We are only on week two! What is the challenge? Well as part of my learning to love myself process, I purchased a book that is guided and geared towards finding your happiness through lists. Now I know that happiness is fleeting and it will take much more than creating lists to find it, But I am hopeful that every little bit helps.


Week Two- Revenge of Eve

52 Week Challenge: Week Two

List the routines in your personal life and work

Take Action: Circle all of the routines that bring you joy, and cross out all the routines you dislike. What is it about the circled routines that bring you joy?

2019 Challenge

A Challenge for Happiness, Inspiration & Balance


As it always happens when we put it out in the universe that we want or need something it will show up in many ways and it becomes our responsibility to act on it.  I don’t know about you but there have been times that I have silently begged for change and to my surprise hundreds of avenues open up for me to initiate the change.  Let me be honest, no matter how bad I may have wanted it, fear holds me back from taking advantage of the opportunities I pled for.

2019 Challenge-Revenge of Eve

This is the case 85% of the time for me, happening more than I’d like to admit.   But guess what?  It is this fear that I want to escape and I am taking things for what they are. This challenge was presented to me by the universe and it is something I vouch to complete.  There I said it!!  You are now given permission to stay on my ass and make sure I am consistent in posting each weeks challenges….I know, I know …. I am not holding you responsible nor do you have to adult-sit me but giving you such permission gives me something to be accountable to.  Ya see??  🙂

So, what is it already??  My mother and I were shopping (surprise) and I just so happened to find my way to the stationery aisle in TJ Maxx (another surprise).  Low and behold, after I over turn each and every notebook, journal, planner, calendar….you get the picture, appears a book titled “52 Lists for Happiness”.  WHAT??? and as I realize what this is, my sign, I pick it up and turn a few pages.  I rub my hand across a page to feel the texture, I admire the illustrations so carefully drawn, and then I check the price.  $10.00.  Not needing to spend any money on myself because I have spent my savings, Christmas is right around the corner, and I have bills due soooo I do what any adult-child would do…. I show it to my mom and with a pitiful pout I say, “I really shouldn’t get this but it is exactly what I need to accomplish my goals in 2019″.  Yes, really.  I am that 40-year old.  Pathetic, right?!  It was my birthday too but it wasn’t that I wanted or needed her to buy it, I just needed her to make it ok for me to spend the $10.00.  Honestly, I should view it as an investment because it is for the bettering, I hope.

2019-Challenge-R.O.E

Walking through the store, with it in hand, I do what any cheap, shopaholic would do, I look for it on Amazon.  🙂  I weigh my options,  I haven’t invested in Prime, (why? no excuse, no excuse)  with shipping it totals about the same price.  I read two reviews and then silently cuss myself out in my head.  “Seriously Candace?  Get it together!!  This has the possibility to lead you to yourself and omg isn’t that what you want?”.  I buy the book.

2019-Challenge-R.O.E

From what I gathered the author is a blogger, ok see…. you seeing the signs yet?, and she has formed a community of fans that participate in this challenge each year.  Amazing, right?  Yes, just agree.  In the preface of the journal/guided book she suggests using the  #52HappyLists hashtag on social media to find others who are working their way through the book.  Considering I am setting myself free from (most) social media, I will not be hashtagging publicly but I will use it on my blog!!  Brilliant!  My fellow bloggers that are unhappy, bored, and needing change can do this together!!  Sounds amazing and I hope you join.  Encourage other to join too but do not look for the hashtag elsewhere because it will not coincide with the edition we are doing.  Like we all know, I am notoriously late for the show and with this being no exception.  WE, tee-hee, will be doinggggggg  the 2016 version of #52HappyLists.  🙂  We are only three years behind.  Not bad.

Here is how it will go down.

Every Monday morning, like wicked early morning, the list of the week will be published by the handy scheduler.  How early?  Hmmmm, let’s say it will “go live” at 2:00 am every Monday morning, Central American time.  From there you can do whatever the hell you want with it.  You can keep it to yourself, you can blast it on your blog, you can email me, post it on your fridge, share with your co-workers…….WHATEVER makes you…… drum roll….. HAPPY!!  BUT, always a but, give credit where credit is due.  How so?

I honestly haven’t even flipped through the book so I don’t know what will be presented each week but what I do know is I am full of hope and I would be so excited if you joined me in this challenge.  What could it hurt?  If you don’t enjoy it, stop at any time.
