Challenge #106--Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of Celebrate The Simple Things in Life

Hello everyone and welcome to the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog! It is the first Monday of the month and it is time for our latest challenge to begin! We hope that you and your families continue to stay healthy and safe out there. 
Since we are not your typical challenge blog, it is important for you to understand how things work in order to be sure you are eligible to win any of the prizes offered. If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab and you can find out all the details you need to know in order to participate, in the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can also be found in the right sidebar under the heading 'General Rules'.
Right now, it is time to get down to the business of our latest challenge. Here is what you need to know...

Challenge #106

Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of 

Celebrate The Simple Things in Life

This year's goal is to celebrate the positive around us. As such, if you would like to participate in the optional twist this month, we want you to design a creation that focuses on Celebrating The Simple Things in Life.
Often, we get so caught up in our daily lives and all the things that we have to accomplish that we forget to stop and be thankful for, and celebrate, the simple things in our life that often get neglected. When was the last time you sat and watched the sun rise or set and just marvelled at the beautiful sky? Did you take some time this fall to go for a walk or a drive and witness the changing of the season in the foliage around you (that is of course if you live in an area where the leaves change colours)? When was the last time you went for a quiet walk with someone you love just to experience the pleasure of being with that person and breathing in some fresh air? Don't forget to also celebrate the things that others around you may not be so lucky to still have--the ability to walk, see, hear or breath without aid. It is important to take the time to reflect on and enjoy the simple things you may take for granted because you never know when they might be gone.
If you want to follow the optional twist this month, take some to to Celebrate The Simple Things in Life and then share with us what you did, in your effort to celebrate the Positivity that already exists in your life.

Remember, the twist is completely optional and you don't need to follow it in order to win. However, in order to be considered eligible for this month's goodies, remember that general types of projects/posts will not qualify for the honours and prize UNLESS they are also positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. Additionally, even if a project may qualify as positive, if your post promotes negativity, hatred or anything of an abhorrent nature, your project will be disqualified. Honours and Prize include:

  • $6 worth of images from Scribbles Designs, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants.
  • A badge for the following honours: Top Pick, Voter's Choice, Most Inspirational, Random Winner, DT Delight.
Now check out what my amazing design team came up with to inspire you. Clicking on each team member's name will take you to their blog where you can check out the details for their inspirational creations.

My wonderful design team continues to outdo themselves time and time again! They each have their own style and clever interpretation of the twist. Even after all this time, I continue to be astounded by the scope of greatness in their work! Each of these artful conceptions has showcased the notion of Celebrating The Simple Things in Life exceptionally and I hope we have inspired you. Be sure to go and visit each team member so you can see how her project further connects to the twist.

So what are you waiting for? Create a project and/or post that is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature and join our link up. How about stretching yourself by also opting to follow the twist?! While it isn't mandatory, we'd also love to find out how this month's twist affects your own life. What are the simple things in your own life that you need to stop and celebrate? You can write a sentence or two in the body of your post, write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, or simply leave a comment on this post if you'd like. Finally, remember that we're trying to create a Path of Positivity so if you have some time, please visit other people participating throughout the month.

I hope to see you back next week when voting will [hopefully] begin on the Top Picks for Challenge #105. There will be a separate post detailing those picks where you will have the opportunity to vote on the creation or post that you have found to be the most positive, inspirational or encouraging of the chosen picks. While I typically publish the Top Picks Post on Monday, it is doubtful that will happen next week due to events going on in my personal life. I will do my best to get it posted sometime that week though.

Then, be sure to join us again on November 21st when we'll be back with our midway featuring more great projects.
If you ever have any questions be sure to EMAIL ME or just leave me a comment.

We look forward to seeing you participate!
