    Spending time outside has been pretty dang wonderful, so this is something that I'll continue to do daily-- it's so peaceful which allows me the space to center myself.

    This has been one snail of a week! I feel like I'm stuff in molasses. Also, it's Halloween, so Need v Want has been challenging.

    Spending time outside is by far my favorite today.

    Today is going to be far more roomy to complete one-time challenges. Pretty stoked.

    The petition is way more challenging for a daily.
    1. Address an issue that's not being addressed [Incredibly niched, so far and in my opinion.]
    2. Create a petition [The hardest part, so far, has been pinpointing to whom this should be addressed.]

    In typing this, I want to say that perhaps I'm not meant to create petitions, but search for some that are already in place and sign the ones I'm passionate about. Yep. It seems I should explore the website a bit more because I didn't see that as an option.

    Wow, after reflecting on this past week, I've realized that the weekend is particularly challenging to be mindful and intentional with my daily challenge, but significantly easier to complete one-time challenges. Next weekend I'll absolute be more mindful.
