So...I took a little hiatus on Week Seven. I had so much to do when we returned from our vacation that I just couldn't fit in the ICAD challenge so instead of stressing about it - I put it on hold until the following week. But then the following week came and went and I still didn't create any index cards.
The great thing about this challenge is that it is what you make of it. So after thinking about it some more, I decided I was not going to complete the 61 day challenge and end it at 42 days.
The challenge, or at least to me, is about playing with products, experimenting, anti-stress and just fun. When I lost that feeling, I knew it was time to put it aside and make a decision. No need to stress about it...just don't participate any more this year.
Receiving this quote in my Daily Inspiration email sealed the deal for me:
Giving up doesn’t always mean you’re weak. Sometimes it means you are strong and smart enough to let go and move on. – Unknown
