Hey everyone,

Some of you may be familiar with the Weekly Challenges we post up each week. They usually involve a fun challenge we can do on the boards such as photo challenges, quizzes, riddle challenges and more!

We're looking for new challenge ideas so if you have any, comment them below :)

    1.3 positive thoughts a day 
    2. Something you like about yourself each day ( my hairs nice today , Ohh I did my nails and they look cute etc ) 
    3.Short  poem challenge - different theme each day or one theme for the week 
    4. Push yourself outside your comfort zone ( do something you wouldn’t usually go , walk instead of taking the bus , work in the day it’s set instead of last minute etc ) 
    “ I believe that you have the power to achieve whatever you put your mind too, You are living a life’s most people won’t  ever understand but that’s what will Be the root of all your determination and success. You have a soul full of love and kindness and I just know that despite all the hardship, a life’s of happiness awaits you and I’m very proud of you, just keep holding on”

    Extreme Reading (I did it in year 4- aka when dinosaurs existed  😂😉😜.)

    What you were like as a baby (photos are optional.)

    Mindfulness  (if it hasn't been done already.)

    Weirdest ever primary or secondary school memory.
    I have endured pain and loss. I have felt broken. I have known hardship, and I have felt lost and alone.

    But here I stand, trying to move forward, one day at a time. I will remember the lessons in my life because they are making me who I am. Stronger.

    Not had much patience to read through the comments so sorry if I've said anything that's repeating. 

    You could do a "draw your emotions" challenge, I do it sometimes and it helps to get the emotions away from you and lock them into paper.
     

    Hey, hey, hey everyday when I wake,
    I'm trying to get up, they're knocking me down.
    Chewing me up, spitting me out.
    Hey, hey, hey when I need to be saved,
    You're making me strong, you're making me stand.

    Create a story challenge, like you start off with a sentence and everyone adds their own sentence to it and you get one weird and funny story at the end :lol:
