I was watching a YouTube video the other day and something completely irrelevant but very interesting was said in it. 

The problem with diets is that when the time period is over, you just go back to what you were eating before. You can’t do that and expect things to go well; it has to be a lifestyle change.


It’s not a new concept or perspective (“Put off the old man and put on the new”, anyone?). But it is a game changer. It flipped my perspective. It was kind of inspiring, you might say. 

So, I’m doing a thing. A challenge. 

If you didn’t get that, basically I am getting up at an early hour every day for 21 days. 21 days is how long it takes to form a habit. With each day, there will be at least a photo or a mini vlog. I want most of these photos/vlogs to be of the sunrise, but no guarantees because Daylight Savings Time is starting soon and I’m not getting up at five just to vlog about a sunrise. 

The name of the challenge is 21 Sunrises and you are more than welcome to join in, if you wish. Just get up early, take a photo or short video of your sunrise (or just something in your morning), put it up on social media, and link me to it in the comments of my blog or the YouTube videos! 

Here’s to formed habits and lifestyle changes, reader-peeps!

Kate out.

    • Thanks! It’s not an exact quote. A paraphrase, really. But man, did it change the way I was looking at some things!

      It’s been nice and sunny here the past couple of days. I hope the rain didn’t take the warmth with it, but it may have. 😕 Oh well, there will be pretty sunrises soon, I’m sure.

  1. Good luck!! I hate getting up early but I love having gotten up early (if that makes sense?). Once I’m awake and ready to go, I feel great at how much of the day I still have left to get things done. I hope your challenge goes well!

Ooh! Are you going to leave a comment? I love comments! And I like replying to them, too!
