21DJC Roundup – How Has Your Experience Been?

This is the roundup post for 21-Day Journaling Challenge (21DJC) for Nov 2011. View list of tasks: 21DJC Overview.

Hi everyone – Welcome to the final roundup post for 21DJC!

We’ve finally reached the end of 21DJC. :D

Day 21 Review

As a quick recap, yesterday’s question was: “What is Your Biggest Wish for the Future?“. (Read the responses.)

Here are the wishes from some of the participants:

“My biggest wish for the future is to be healthy and happy. I also wish to be financially independent and strong!” – Iva

“To see myself on the top. I wish to be one of the best Graphic Designer in this world. And I know, sooner or later, I will be one for sure because I’m on the right track and I know what I want from my life.” – Kamal

“My biggest wish for the future would be…. to live every day with no regrets, love whole heartedly , spend each moment living to the fullest, striving every day to challenge myself and be more than the sum of my parts!!” – Raven

“My biggest wish would be for the population of this planet to wake up and stop following traditions that are damaging to the planet.” – Glenn

“…I would wish for a utopian world with peace and harmony …..I wish for a long life, health and happiness for my family and to be able to live an evironment that allows us to reach our full-potential.” – Charles

“For myself, and obviously this includes my lovely little family of hubby and two kiddies: to find/create a spiritually rich, healthy, fit, growing and environmentally friendly way of life that is sustainable for us in the long run.” – Aletta

“My biggest wish for the future is being able to live my life as my ideal self. I feel like I’m starting to make progress and that momentum is building up and it feels really good.” – Bryan

“I wish to be more fearless, have more belief in myself and what I am truly capable of. Love and respect myself for what I am.” – Vibha

“My biggest wish would be to see the world, or even my community, come together in peace and understanding. My biggest wish is to live in a world where love is the driver of society.” – Laurel

“I wish for so many things, and the priority level of each wish fluctuates, but I consistently wish that my children are happy and healthy, that my grandson is able to shine even though (or maybe because ) he has Asberger’s, that I remain happy and fulfilled in my life path, that I remain healthy and not a burden to my children.” – Julia

“My biggest wish is to buy a house with my husband, and have a studio (instead of just a corner in a room) where I can work on my paintings whenever I want.” – Kimberly

“My biggest wish for the future is to have a real impact and a legacy for people in my country.” – melita

If you must know, my biggest wish for the future is to see the world united as one. It’s something I’ve written about in Two Important Things that Led to My Discovery of My Real Purpose.

I believe all of us (humanity) are parts of a bigger whole, and we are currently living as fragmented beings, as part of our individual life journey (though we are still connected to the same subconsciousness). The day when all of us achieve the highest level of consciousnesses (Enlightenment or whatever it is), I believe we will become united as one single consciousness – and that’s when humanity can move to the next stage of evolution.

Thank You!

I’d like to take this chance to thank all of you for your active participation in 21DJC.

This is by far one of our most successful challenges to date, in terms of retention rate and consistency of participation, and it’s thanks to YOU. This could have never happened without you.

Thank you for selflessly sharing your answers here, for the challenge would not be as rich if not for your sharing.

Thank you for holding true to your integrity and following through every day of the challenge, just as you intended to when you first signed up on Day 0.

Thank you for treating the questions seriously and answering them with earnesty, vs. dismissing them as just another age-old, cliche question. Because while I can meticulously craft the questions with the best intentions, they do jack if you don’t bother to put thought into them.

Thank you for making 21DJC happen so beautifully. I’m extremely grateful to all of you for your participation, and words can’t express how I feel.

Your Feedback Needed

As usual with all challenges at PE, I need your help to provide me feedback on the course itself, which will help me in creating bigger, better challenges in the future.

Regardless of whether you completed the whole 21DJC or just did selected tasks, I want to hear from you. I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a few minutes of your time to answer the following 4 questions (in fact, the more detailed your feedback, the better it’ll be):

  1. How has the whole 21DJC experience been for you?
  2. What have you learned throughout the 21 days?
  3. Which question(s) did you find most meaningful? And why?

And in the spirit of 21DJC, here’s one final journaling question:

  1. What is one thing you’re going to do differently after having gone through 21DJC?

As a recap, here are the posts/questions for the past 21 days:

    Dear Celes and all my fellow-writers and bloggers,

    First of all, thanks to Celes for starting this fabulous challenge! :clap:

    I was just going through the overview, the questions and the answers- and I feel so buoyed already! I always thought I was pretty self-aware compared to my peers, but I just realized how much more I have learnt and grown in the past month! I am sure everyone else feels they have learnt a lot too, so Hurrah to all of us! :dance: :clap: :dance:

    Somehow writing my innermost thoughts and reading the responses from others has made my goals clearer than before. It feels good to see that there are others who share my hopes and aspirations to a better life, and that I am not alone in my fears. When I read about others who have suffered more pain and yet emerged triumphant and wiser, I feel inspired to work harder and make the most of my life, too! So thanks to all the other bloggers- wish you all the very best in all your endeavours. May success crown all your efforts! :hug:

        Okay, hereafter my feelings:

        Question 1: How has the whole 21DJC experience been for you?
        Answer 1: Great and memorable.

        Q2: What have you learned throughout the 21 days?
        A2: Consistency is one of the keys to personal development.

        Q3: Which question(s) did you find most meaningful? And why?
        A3: No preferences. The 21 questions were all meaningful and interestingly part of the past PE challenges.

        Q4: What is one thing you’re going to do differently after having gone through 21DJC?
        A4: Keep on Journalising which is now part of my daily habits.

        Like I said beofre, this experience has a great impact on my life. Unfortunately, I do not have a Paypal account (Live in Ivory Coast) in order to participate to the 30DLBL challenge. But, on December, I will re-do (already done it on April) the 30DLBL challenge as part of the private forum.

        Thanks again, Angel, for leading us towards our best self.

  3. Kimberly says:

    How has the whole 21DJC experience been for you?

    I really enjoyed participating in this challenge. I have been writing in my own journal for quite some time now (about a year and a half), but 21DJC made me really think about more than just the everyday stuff. Some of the questions really made me consider things I had never thought of before, such as my limiting beliefs, my favourite sense, what I have learned from the past and what I really want for the future.

    What have you learned throughout the 21 days?

    I really learned to appreciate everything I have and to value my life, myself as an individual, and the limited time we have on this earth. Unfortunately, 21DJC started just before there was a tragic death of a relative in our family. That experience and the questions themselves have made me realize how important it is to not waste time, to cherish every moment and love with all my heart.

    Which question(s) did you find most meaningful? And why?

    There were a couple that really made an impact on me. “Who is the most important person in the world to you?” really hit home because it was just after our relative passed away and it made me realize how much I truly love my husband, and how devastated I would be if I lost him. “What limiting beliefs are you holding on to?” was another one that made me really dig deep and consider why I don’t accomplish certain goals or why I don’t always stand up for myself.

    What is one thing you’re going to do differently after having gone through 21DJC?

    One thing that I am already doing differently since starting 21DJC is speaking up when I need to and making the most of every opportunity. This journaling experience and the events of November have made me realize that time is precious, and if there is something I believe in, I have to fight for it. Now that 21DJC is over, I am also really looking forward to doing 30DLBL for the first time so that I can take what I have learned about myself from this challenge and apply it to my goals for the future.

      Hey Kimberly, I’m very sorry about the loss of your relative. That is tragic and very unfortunate – My heart goes out to his/her loved ones. I’m proud of you for sticking on to 21DJC despite all that was going on – the things you gained (from 21DJC) would not have happened if you didn’t stick to it.

      Thank you for your wonderful participation. :hug: I really appreciate your open and selfless sharing in each day’s task – you may not realize it, but you have helped countless people who read your posts. You have been a wonderful part of the community and I look forward to connecting with you more during Dec 30DLBL.

  4. Laurel says:

    1. How has the whole 21DJC experience been for you?
    I loved the experience, and almost felt like 21 days was not nearly enough. The challenge also really opened up my writing flow again, it had been blocked for so long!

    2. What have you learned throughout the 21 days?
    I don’t know that I gained any new information, but I was able to organise my thoughts a bit better, and that in itself will definitely help me in the future.

    3. Which question(s) did you find most meaningful? And why?
    Day 14: What is love?
    Day 19: What words describe you?
    Day 20: What limiting beliefs are you holding on to?
    Day 21: What is your greatest wish for the future?
    These questions are the ones that really made me thing and delve into my heart, and I will probably hold on to them and ask myself these questions again periodically in the future.

    4. What is one thing you’re going to do differently after having gone through 21DJC?

    Keep answering the questions! I’ll probably privately answer the questions from the challenge more extensively, and also write down and answer new questions that these draw up. I’ll also probably go back to writing essay style entries about whatever is on my mind again, as I did in the past. (Don’t know why I ever stopped,<<")

      Hey Laurel, it did seem the 21 days went past really fast, didn’t it? :) I’m glad the challenge opened up your writing flow – it seems like it did too for the other members. Thank you for your amazing participation – you have been integral to the success of the challenge, as with the other members who were sharing so readily and openly. Thank you to all of you – I really appreciate it.

  5. Lottie says:

    I feel immensely touched, helped and inspired having read all the entries for the various questions. What a gift each day. There’s something so comforting and uplifting about other people honestly sharing their thoughts. The whole experience has been a significant one for me.

    I have learned to appreciate how fortunate I am and realize that I really do want to make the very most of the rest of my life. I have deepened my appreciation of my life.

    All of the questions were meaningful but the one that had the most impact on me was ‘ On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love yourself?’ I had a ‘eureka’ moment of realizing how futile and damaging it is to keep being so self punitive. The ‘which of your five senses do you value most?’ question brought up huge amounts of gratitude and appreciation, whilst the ‘what do you fear most?’ question brought out an unexpected answer: me!

    One thing I am going to do more differently from now on is to to keep journalling – I want to ask myself these questions again and further deepen/clarify my answers. I did not really give myself enough time to respond. I have more faith in the process now.

    Thanks Celes, for being so generous, and thanks to everyone else too. Have a fab 2012 xxx

    How has the whole 21DJC experience been for you?

    Great! It got me writing something everyday. Sometimes this would end up being a long post, and other times short. The questions were simple enough to answer too. Some required more thinking than others, and a few I realised I could have written better afterwards. But I didn’t want end up on a path to perfectionism writing these journal entries, so I just wrote them the best I could at the time and posted them. I enjoyed reading other’s journal entries also. Quite a variety too. Thanks for putting this together Celes!

    What have you learned throughout the 21 days?

    Probably that I’m able to answer more difficult questions and write about my experience or thoughts on any particular question more easily than I thought I would be able to. Some of my longer journal entries were actually written in a short amount of time. Which tells me I should continue writing on a daily basis.

    Which question(s) did you find most meaningful? And why?

    Any questions that enabled me to write based on what I have already experienced or how I currently see myself. ‘What drives you?’ for example, or ‘What makes you happy?’, ‘What is your most painful experience?’ and so on. The ‘what if?’ style questions probably appealled to me the least. But most of them were still fun to write about.

    And in the spirit of 21DJC, here’s one final journaling question:
    What is one thing you’re going to do differently after having gone through 21DJC?

    To double check anything I’ve written for typos or bad grammar. Checking just once doesn’t seem to do the trick :)

      Hey Glenn, I love that you focused on answering the questions as best as you could within the day, and just posted them. Many would get stuck in their quest for perfection and end up slipping away/dropping out of the challenge altogether, which is only detrimental to them in the end, and a huge pity because they miss out on insights they could have gained.

      Thanks so much for your wonderful participation. :hug: I believe many participants appreciated your replies and found them very useful, so you had been a real great contributor to the community. Look forward to a great Dec 30DLBL run ahead with you and the rest. :)

  8. Netta says:

    The entire 21DJC experience was wonderful for me. I have always enjoyed keeping a journal and writing as well, but this challenge ask a question and gave me inspiration on what I am writing about.
    I learned things about myself as I wrote for this challenge. I also learned what matters most to me and what some of my goals are.
    The most meaningful questions to me were ‘what has been the most painful experience to date’ and ‘words to describe me’. I was able to think through my painful experiences and also see them in a different view. I am also happy with the words I chose for myself, even the negative ones, because several years ago, I’m positive they would have been different.
    After doing this challenge, I am going to keep up with my goals, practice the things I wrote about changing, meditate for sure, and just simplify and enjoy life.
    Thank you so much for this challenge Celes. I truly enjoyed it very much and I think you are a terrific person!

      Prion, I’ll appreciate it if you can provide feedback via the 4 questions listed above, or at least elaborate on why you found it boring, vs. just post a dismissive, one-word comment? I’ve put in due effort in creating the challenge, and while I do not expect that everyone can benefit from it in the same way, I think it’s in quite poor taste and poor spirit to post a feedback in this manner, that’s neither constructive nor helpful for me or the other members reading this. I do not ask any of the participants to pay for this course and have provided it completely free, and I expect at least some form of courtesy or respect to my time and effort put into creating and conducting this course.

  10. 1. How has the whole 21DJC experience been for you?
    This has for me been an interesting experience. I seldom share all my thoughts publicly because I don’t want them to ever haunt me professionally. However, I think I will take these questions, place them in my private journal that is Eyes Only and expand upon the thoughts I already have formulated. A Journal is a private list of expressions and thoughts just for my personal awareness and some of them do not need to be shared with the world, but this has given me a spark to get started again.

    2. What have you learned throughout the 21 days?
    I have learned that I still have some pretty significant trust issues that I need to examine so that I can move past some of the experiences in my life. I have learned that many people struggle with much of the same things I struggle with. I have learned that writing my thoughts down on a piece of paper helps me get them straight in my head. I have learned that if I want for something to happen in my life I am going to have to get up from my computer and get my butt busy.

    3. Which question(s) did you find most meaningful? And why?
    Day 4, If you were to travel back in time to 3 years ago, what advice would you give yourself?, was a very pointed question for me to have to answer. Three years ago was a very difficult time in my life. As I sat and answered this question I had to deal with some emotions that I had kept buried so as not to have to deal with them. It made me finally face my hurt, loss, and grief. Day 5, who is the most important person in the world to you?, was another question that made me face some reality and truth. It made me acknowledge feelings that were there, but not expressed. Day 15, what is your most painful experience to date?, also caused me to face the pain of my broken heart where my mother’s death was concerned. It forced me to realize that I was and still am really upset with my family due to the lack of consideration they had for me, expecting me to be as strong as I always was in the face of loosing her. Everyone wanted comfort and failed to offer me any. Experiencing these emotions again has made me realize that I have to tell them how I feel about it or it will again fester and cause me internal pain.

    4. What is one thing you’re going to do differently after having gone through 21DJC?
    One thing for sure that I am going to do differently is that as of December 1, 2011 I am going to get up and start making things happen in my life. If I want something to happen I am going to have to do the work it takes to get it done, I have to stop waiting for it to be handed to me. I have to be the change I want to see in my life.

    I have enjoyed the experience and I am so very glad that life did not get in the way of completing this adventure as it did the last one I attempted. Thank you for your hard work in this…. :heart:

      Hey Karman, kudos for sticking with 21DJC for the entire run! I find writing my thoughts out plays a significant role in getting them clarified in my head too, which is partly why I started 21DJC – journaling is a highly useful tool in personal growth. I’m glad the journaling has brought awareness to those areas you mentioned – I feel you are a very highly conscious and developed individual, and I have no doubt you make great progress in them moving forward.

    1. How has the whole 21DJC experience been for you?
    • On day 1 I had the experience of “Wow, I can actually fit this into my very hectic lifestyle! This is very important as I now have the impetus to carry on journaling daily. For this very reason I decided to do the 30DLBL challenge as that will keep me in the pattern of having to do this daily and then to be able to do this on my own afterward.
    2. What have you learned throughout the 21 days?
    • The most important lessons I’ve learnt were the following:
    1. I’m on a spiritual journey and questioning what I’ve been taught. Some of these things I’m happy to keep and some I’m happy to discard. I’m also willing to expose myself to new thoughts and challenge these.
    2. That I do have dreams that actually scare me! They’re so big I’m not sure where to start and need to get to a place where I convince myself that I should!
    3. Which question(s) did you find most meaningful? And why?
    • What would I do if I had a million dollars, because it set me free to think of what I’d really want to do and I had the distinct ‘knowing’ that it’s not the money I need, but the will and wanting to achieve those goals. Money is not the obstacle
    • If you are to do something for free for the rest of your life, because this brought me to what I’d really like to do with my life
    • What is your ideal diet like, because it brought me closer to what I’ve been thinking about all along
    • On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love yourself, because it just confirmed the fact that I have issues here to work with and as I’m able to talk about it, it means that I’m becoming ready to deal with it
    And in the spirit of 21DJC, here’s one final journaling question:
    1. What is one thing you’re going to do differently after having gone through 21DJC?
    • I’ll set time aside daily for myself. Previously I’d just push through the day without allowing myself any ‘me’ time.

      Hey Aletta! I’ve designed 21DJC so it is very low maintenance and manageable, so I’m glad you had successfully worked it into your hectic lifestyle. As busy as we are, it’s important to consciously set aside time for self-reflection and growth; else it will always take the backseat as with our Quadrant 2 tasks.

      I saw your purchase for 30DLBL, by the way – awaiting your sign up at the forums. Look forward to a wonderful 30DLBL run together in December. :)

    Wait a minute, Celes. First, let me thank you for setting this up in this first place. You didn’t have to, but you did. Thanks. :) Now, per your request:

    **How has the whole 21DJC experience been for you?

    I’ve enjoyed myself. Having contemplated a few — but certainly not all — of these sorts of things before, I found some answers came quickly, whereas others I had to dig out of myself. I like being forced to do that. I liked not knowing what was coming next.

    **What have you learned throughout the 21 days?

    I’ve probably learned as much about other people as I have about myself. Whilst I’ve got my daily/weekly/yearly act well together, I could do a better job of tapping into my softer side that I may have repressed a bit. Also, writing helped me to solidify my thoughts on a number of topics. I’ll keep that forever.

    **Which question(s) did you find most meaningful? And why?

    I liked the Drive question. I had to ponder the Love question the most. I thought the Pain question elicited the most touching responses. You didn’t ask, but I found the Senses question least “deep” (but that’s fine and it looks like it worked for many).

    **What is one thing you’re going to do differently after having gone through 21DJC?

    I’ll try your next program.

    Celes, you also didn’t ask for ideas specifically, but one to consider to complement this very introspective challenge would be an action-step challenge. For example:

    “What’s the biggest day-to-day habit that’s holding you back — and what’s one daily action you can take to break it?”

    I just made that up, and there are probably better examples. Not all action steps are bite-sized into daily increments, of course, so simply identifying the action could be a noble target in many instances.

    Just an idea, and a big thanks once again :)

    Salamat (that’s thank you in Filipino) for the opportunity to participate. I didn’t think I’d be able to join and enjoy being in this same space as the other journal mates! I am glad I took the step, and would like to join future challenges. The topics got me to think of my own take of the matters at hand. I want to review my answers and entries some more, as I want messages from my High Self to come out of those lines and speak to me once more. Journaling helped me be clear of where I am in the here and now. The topics that drew me in are those for days 5, 8, 10, 14, 15. There were days when I wasn’t able to write. But I will, on my own. Again, thanks you. Best to all! Namaste!

    Thanks for organising this challenge. I didn’t respond to each day’s questions but I did gain some insights from the time I spent and valued the feedback that other people made. Some of the questions I found too bizarre or irrelevant.

    However, based on my earlier experience with “Morning Pages” (as described by Julia Cameron in her Artists Way book) I prefer to write my journal pages long hand and write them first thing in the morning away from the computer. I much prefer this than writing on the computer.

    Also, I don’t want to share on a forum a lot of what I have written as it is very personal.

    What I am going to do in the future is restart my morning pages/journalling – but after the 30DLBL challenge as I will be using the time first thing in the morning to deal with the challenges. I have
    printed a copy of your 101 questions from the PE web site and will use as writing starters.

      I didnt really answer Celes’ questions:

      1. How has the whole 21DJC experience been for you?

      I gained insights when I made an effort to respond to the questions. Maybe I would have gained insights from the questions that I thought were rather left-field. Time spent journalling is worthwhile especially when it is done in a quiet time and place

      2. What have you learned throughout the 21 days?

      An awareness to seek out happiness and let go of frustrations. Spend time doing the things I love with the people I love – life is for living.

      3. Which question(s) did you find most meaningful? And why?

      Q6 – frustrations – thinking about these helps me devise strategies to overcome these frustrations so I don’t get frustrated.
      Q9 – what drives me – use this is a reminder to keep me heading in the right direction.

        I enjoyed this challenge but I also like very much to sit quietly by myself and write on paper my thoughts and feelings. I had a journal assignment in English in high school and I put everything into it. It, of course, had to be hand written in our notebooks. We had questions such as where do we see ourselves in 10 years. I loved this class but my favorite part was the “free days” when we could write about what ever came to mind.

    It was a great experience. The questions you asked were thought provoking and insightful. I opened doors in my thinking that had not been opened for many years.

    The insight did help me decide and start a regular radio show on disabled and elder care that has excellent promise.

    It was a great effort. I stayed with it and answered all the questions. Thank you for the experience.
