Inspirational type videos and such don't always do much for me. I feel that in the internet world a lot of that stuff is overblown and just annoying. What can I say? I''m not always the touchy/feely sort. Especially when I feel a story, pictures, etc. is being done for reasons that are other than noble (reasons that scream 'look at me', 'I need attention', 'no, seriously, look at me!'). Sometimes though, I do find myself a bit inspired by something I've seen. Sometimes things feel genuine enough to make me wonder how this person's experience could affect me and my life.
This time around I'm thinking I'll take this woman's 100 day experience and convert it into something I can use for myself. Something a little different than the usual New Years resolution type fare.
Since I feel 100 days is doable for just about anything, and I'm curious as to how this type of approach could work for something I've been thinking about doing anyway, I'm going to attempt 100 days straight of a good skin care regimen.
This may sound silly. For me, skin care has always been an issue. My skin is not the typical commercial worthy terrible and yet it has been not a lot of fun for a very long time. Yes, at very nearly 40 I am still dealing with occasional acne breakouts and have had this problem since way before I was a teenager. I have tried so many things and most have been way too harsh and didn't really help. However, by chance and by listening to a good friend who works in the skin care field, I have realized that if I can just stick with a good cleansing and light moisturizing routine I can improve my facial outlook dramatically. And since I am turning 40 I would like to finally get this issue under control. I'm just not so good at sticking with the routine. As soon as I get things looking better, I kind of 'forget' to keep it up.
Isn't it funny how we forget to do things for ourselves?
It is hard for me to do the little things that mean taking care of me. This is one small thing that I feel could make a big difference for me and that I deserve to take the time to do for myself.
What about you? What would you like to attempt to do for 100 days? Would you be willing to take the time to do it? Does 100 days seem like a long time to you?
