Five Thought Friday Challenge #5TF

Over the past week, I’ve been combing through some of our older posts and moving the ones that are travel or adventure related to our other blog: Going Sightseeing. Exploring our neighborhood (and the world around us) is a very important part of our happiness pursuit and minimalism has made it possible for us to go places we never imagined. Having a separate area to showcase these adventures makes it easier for me, especially when I’m having a not-so-happy day, to remember all the great things we have done since starting our minimalist journey in 2012. Though it is still just a bare-bones blog, I hope the coming months and years fill the pages with many new adventures and we invite you to follow along.

As I was looking back at past posts, I found some that were titled “Five Thought Friday”. I remember running across this idea on another blog and implementing it as a way to share what was going on in our lives for the week as we progressed toward our then goal of living on 50% of our income. I still like the idea but thought it might need a little tweaking. Rather than 5 random thoughts for the week, I wanted to try 5 guided thoughts; so I came up with these lead-ins:

One thing I really enjoyed this week was…
I made progress on…
I am grateful for…
I need to let go of…
The funniest thing that happened this week was…

I thought that I would try this as a 10-week challenge to inspire greater happiness, gratitude, and mindfulness as well as to encourage regular blogging during the summer months when writing has a tendency to take a backseat to playing outside. You’re welcome to copy or adapt the idea for your own blog or bullet journal. If you do decide to participate, tag your posts #5TF so that we can all follow each others thoughts.

Be sure to check out our first Five Thought Friday post tomorrow.
