Do You 22?

22 Things, that is!

It’s been some time since I last wrote about 22 Things – a Creative Change Challenge that I started WAY back in March of this year. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept behind 22 Things or would like to read that very first post (list included), I invite you to check it out HERE.

22 Things is about announcing to the world – and more importantly yourself – that you are breaking free of the conventional idea that in order to make changes in your life, you have to do BIG things. It’s about making a list of twenty-two small steps you can take RIGHT NOW to change your life.

Sounds easy, right? It is!

But maybe some of you are saying…

But Angie, I can’t think of 22 things. That’s just WAY too many!

Okay, no problem. Break it down, start smaller (I’m all about that small things here). List as many items as you can. Build on them, reevaluate and once you’ve stroked off a few items (and I guarantee you will) add more! Life is ever changing and your lists should reflect that.

Making this list really changed the way I look at life. Before 22 Things, change was daunting and unmanageable; I gave up before I started. So in the spirit of 22 Things, I present to you… Angie’s List of 22 Things.

  1. I like the list, and agree with just about all of it–hehe. I especially like your positive language: You state what you WILL do, rather than what you won’t; a tactic I have found incredibly helpful for reinforcing postive changes and mind states. I shared!! 🙂
