30 Days of Truth -- The Prompts

At the beginning of the year I made a promise (to myself mostly) that I'd try to blog more. About this same time last year a lot of my friends in Blogland did the 30 Days of Blogging challenge. It was pretty lighthearted; just a fun way to get the creative juices flowing, and I had a lot of fun participating. I thought about doing something like that again to help me get back into the writing mood, so I started searching for similar ideas to share on my blog. That's when I came across the 30 Days of Truth challenge. 

The subjects in this challenge range from simple to thought-provoking to... well, pretty deep (like, bear-your-heart-and-soul/hours-spent-on-a-therapist's-couch deep). At first I kinda dismissed the idea but when I took a second look at the list of writing prompts, I started to think that it might be pretty cool. I think it will be an interesting way for me to really get back into the blogging game. 

Day 01: Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 : Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 : Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 : Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05 : Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 : Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07 : Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 : Someone who made your life hell, or treated you badly.
Day 09 : Someone you didn't want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 : Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn't know.
Day 11 : Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12 : Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13 : A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough days. 
Day 14 : A hero that has let you down. 
Day 15 : Something or someone you couldn't live without.
Day 16 : Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17 : A book you've read that changed your views on something.
Day 18 : Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19 : What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20 : Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21 : (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22 : Something you wish you hadn't done in your life.
Day 23 : Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24 : Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles, artists and a letter)
Day 25 : The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26 : Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27 : What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 : What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29 : Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 : A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself

I can't promise a post every single day. There will certainly be breaks here and there, and I may choose to combine multiple subjects into a single day's post, but I'll try to keep things in order as I go along. So check back tomorrow for the first post, and feel free to join the challenge if you'd like. I think we could have a lot of fun with this!
