I love the idea of setting yourself a monthly challenge. L.O.V.E. it! It brings about an air of the New Year new me thing, which I also totally love! But who’s going to know unless you either write it down on paper and stick it to your forehead, or write it on your blog?! I tend to opt for the forehead option (and then waffle on about it during the month on my blog) but this month, thanks to a lovely linky by Aby over at You Baby Me Mummy, I’m going to write a proper pledge to achieve at least 2 things this month.

Challenge yourself - What will you do this month? #may #challenge http://www.mumsdays.com/challenge-yourself/


Challenge 1.  Read a fiction book from my reading list.

It’s May and I think I’ve read 3 books from my reading list. And they were all nonfiction. This does not bode well for achieving my new years resolution! I started Half of a Yellow Sun in January and I’m 87 pages in. It’s embarrassing. So I am going to FINISH this book in May.

Challenge 2. Learn to use iMovie and post my first Vlog

This scares me, so I guess it’s a good idea. Get out of your comfort zone in order to challenge yourself and improve. Who knows, I might absolutely love it and I would never have found out if it weren’t for this month’s challenge yourself!

How does that sound? I recon that’s achievable. And now I’ve written it down, I’m also accountable. What a fool I will look if I haven’t made a fool of myself on camera by the end of the month!

How will you challenge yourself in May? Feel free to use the comment section as your forehead and I’ll check in with you at the end of the month to see if you’ve achieved it!
