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


Hey folks! Welcome back to the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog! It is the third Monday of the month and that means that it is time to present the midway for Challenge #106. It is my fond hope that each of you and your own families continue to stay safe and well wherever it is you live in this big wide world of ours.  
Some of you may have noticed that I don't have the Top Picks for Challenge #105 posted yet. When we got back from a week of visiting my parents on Tuesday, I found out that my 2 backup drives had been corrupted which means that I only had one copy of everything. So for the last several days I've been needed to re-backup my info which is taking FOREVER! As a result of it slowing my computer down, I haven't been able to get much else done at a time when I desperately need to catch up. I hope to have the Top Picks post ready later this week. Your patience is appreciated.

As we are a unique kind of challenge blog, it is important for you to understand how things work. Please be sure to check out the START POST FOUND HERE for the specific details related to this month's challenge, and you can find out all the general details you need to know in order to participate, by clicking on the 'Challenge Details' tab (located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can now be found in the right sidebar under the heading 'General Rules'.
Right now, it is time to continue with our midway. Here is a refresher of the details for our current twist:

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.

Thanks again to my fabulous design team! As always, each of them have their own exceptional approaches and concepts which impress me to no end. Each of these creations has demonstrated the theme of Celebrating The Simple Things in Life admirably, and I hope we have encouraged you throughout this challenge to come up with your own piece of handiwork. Be sure to go and visit these talented ladies so you can see just how their projects tie in to the twist.
