The 21 day challenge

Rhonna Farrer posted a challenge on her blog last week - the 21 day challenge, because it takes 21 days to develop a habit. It totally inspired me so I've decided to participate.
Here's the cover of my journal. I'll be posting more as I go along.

The cover is significant of many feelings I'm having at this point in my life. I want to be better, believe in myself, believe in my dreams - the sparkles and flower signify those things - but I still feel so uncertain of myself, I don't believe in me, I struggle with loving who I am right now - hence the distressed looking paper, rough edges, the cracked UTEE. I want to work on me. I need to work on me. I need to change my mind about who I am. I need to be more positive and develop a healthy view of who I am. So that's part of my challenge - to change the way I think of myself, one day at a time, one thought at a time - replacing the negative, believing the truth. I have a few ideas of how I need/want to do this and that's what I hope to do during these 21 days.
I apologize for the crummy photo but I didn't get a chance to take a photo of my journal in the daylight and I haven't quite figured out how to adjust everything in PS yet. However, I really wanted to post this today and make a commitment to doing it.
Thanks so much, Rhonna, for the challenge and the inspiration!

Heather, loved your journal entry about the 21-day challenge and your journal cover. I wanna work on those inner beauties, too. In fact, there are so many things I'd like to improve about myself. LOL I started with exercise.
