Hi everyone – Welcome to Day 18 of 21DJC! :)

Closing of 21DJC and Year End Challenge for 2011

Just a quick note that we only have 3 days left till the end of our 21-Day Journaling Challenge. We started on Nov 7, and 2.5 weeks have already passed by since. I hope all of you are gaining valuable insights from the journaling, because I know I definitely am.

On Nov 27, which is this Sunday, 21DJC will come to a close. A few short days after that, we will be launching right into our highly anticipated Live a Better Life in 30 Days Challenge – the premium, 30-day life development challenge there is at PE. Started since Sep ’10, we’ve since had 3 successful runs of 30DLBL, and Dec ’11 will be the 4th official run of the challenge. This will be *the* challenge for us to close off 2011 and start off 2012 with a big bang.

You must definitely not miss this. I’ll be opening for sign ups very soon (in a couple of days), so stay tuned. Make sure you’re on the newsletter so you’ll get the announcement directly in your inbox.

Day 17 Review

Yesterday’s question was: “If The World Came To An End Today, How Would You Feel?“. (Read the responses.)

With year 2012 coming up in less than 40 days, I thought it would be an interesting question to ponder upon. 2012 has been commonly associated with the end of the world, and while I personally do not believe the world will end in 2012, I think it’s still something worthwhile to consider.

If the world came to an end today, I would first feel sad, because the immediate thought was I would not be able to continue pursuing my purpose (in the current form). I’m experiencing so much joy doing it that I don’t want it to ever end. And certainly not via the expiration of the very civilization I’ve devoted my life to serving, too. That would be very devastating to me.

That said, I understand that whatever will be, will be. If the world was to truly end today, there must be a good reason behind it. For every ending, there is a new beginning, and I believe there will be new things in store for all of us ahead. I personally believe the human spirit lives on after death, so I’m not too hung up about issues concerning life and death.

For what it’s worth, if the world does indeed come to an end, it probably means we (as a civilization) have finished fulfilling whatever we are meant to achieve (when the world was first created) and that it’s time to move on to the next stage in our evolution. So that’s actually a very good thing, and something to look forward to.

With that said, let’s now move to today’s question!

21DJC Day 18

Today is the 4th last day of 21DJC, and the 4th last question of the challenge. Today’s question is:

What Matters Most To You?

Having lived X years of your life, what would you say are the things that matter most to you? Is it money? Is it material possessions? Is it spending time with your loved ones? Is it seeing the smile on their faces? Is it seeing the sun rise every day? Is it good health? Is it achieving your goals with excellence? Is it being the best person you can be? Is it to live to the fullest?

Your Task Today:

  1. Reflect and answer today’s question. There’s no word limit – whether minimum or maximum. Write as few or as many words as you want. It’s all up to what you want to express!
  2. Share your answer. After you are done writing, copy and paste your answer in the comments area and post it there.
  3. Check out other participants’ answers. Other participants will be sharing their answers too, so feel free to read and reply to their answers. This is a group course, so let’s support each other in these 21 days.
Look forward to reading your answers! :D
