An Update on the Orange Rhino

Image

At one time, I was posting weekly about my challenge with the Orange Rhino. (A no yelling for 365 days challenge… You can read about it here

Originally I was going to keep up the daily journal type entries, but I was finding it discouraging to have be writing out my failures. So I decided to stop writing them and just mark on the calender the days I made it through without yelling. It kept me accountable, but without making me feel like I was failing my monsters. 

Today I decided that I was going to write an update for two reasons. One- I don’t wan anyone to think that I gave up on the challenge. I am still going strong. And two- Because today I am proud of myself. Today is the first time I have made it to day 10. 

I cannot even count how many times I have started back at zero. In the two months since I started this challenge, the best I had been doing was 7 days (which I did twice, not counting this time!). Today is day 10. I hope tomorrow is day 11 without yelling/snapping. But only time will tell. 

Love, hugs and more to come later!

  1. I love how you are just restarting at 0. Congrats on reaching day 10. You could also now look back at how many days over 2 months were successful. Lets say you missed once a week, its still just 8 to 10 days over 2 months…. Which is quite good in my opinion. And even if its more, it is probably still less than before so you are still improving which means this is successful for you! Keep going!
