“Just before Christmas my fellow blogger ‘The Family of 5’ organised a 31-day photo challenge for families that are connected with adoption. If you wish to see what we got up to, you can view the pics at #FO5Photo. The idea was to think about ways that us adopters take care of ourselves on a daily basis, whilst having a bit of fun too!
It was really popular and I felt as though it brought some of us adopters together as we shared in the small things that we use to care for ourselves and bring us a bit of joy and comfort.
So myself and a couple of adopters have thought about doing a 100-day challenge. The idea is to take a picture a day for 100 days of something that makes you happy. It could be anything, something big or something small. Maybe a cake, maybe a cup of coffee, or a picture of your favourite pet.
At the end of the 100 days it would be lovely to look back over the pictures and see how we have cared for ourselves over that time period and be able to smile at some of the fun we have had either on our own or with our family and friends.
There is no start or finish date so join in as and when you can and if you miss a day (or two) just jump straight back in and carry on.
It would be great to have as many people linked to adoption as possible to join in so if you can please share, re-tweet or forward this post on to raise awareness that would be most appreciated.
So because here at The Adoption Social we first love a challenge, two, we are right behind #TakingCare and three, love a project that we can all do together, we are lending our support to this project.
Below you will find a linky where you can link up blog posts that feature you #TakingCare100 pictures. You might be posting every day, or maybe you are doing a weekly round up of your pictures, or maybe one particular picture inspired you to write a post, any which way, you can link up below. The linky is open until the end of January, when we’ll do a review of how were all getting on.
We’ve also created a pinterest board so we can collect together, as many as possible, of the pictures, in one place, including those that don’t appear on a blog. You’ll find the Pinterest board HERE If anyone does not want their pictures on the board, please contact us.
So remember to keep sharing your pictures with hashtag #TakingCare100, linking up below, and keep on taking care.
