Live Your Strengths

Write 31 Days: Live Your Strengths

Write every single day for the month of October. It seems pretty daunting. After all, I barely am able to write twice a week. After watching others join this challenge, I decided this is the year I finally have time to do it. A little blogging experience; no newborn; a preschooler… The timing couldn’t be better!


My topic for October 2016 will be based on my StrengthsFinder results. I’ll spend about five days on each strength, telling stories, reflecting on how this looks in my own life. It’s a fairly loose framework, so we’ll see where these guidelines lead as the month progresses.

I’ll update this list as I publish so you can follow along, even if you miss a post. (Though the best way to keep in the loop is to subscribe to this blog. Just fill in your email address to the right. I only send out updates – nothing else!)
