The 30 Day No-Fail Happiness Challenge

Happy Motivation Monday everyone. I hope you have all had an amazing holiday season thus far. December is coming to a close and for all of you who have taken the Loft & Learn December Strong Challenge I hope you stuck to your mission (whatever it was) and are in great shape, mentally, spiritually and financially. Thank you for the outpouring of participation. I heard from many of you challenging yourselves, to many fantastic things, big and small. So many goals including: losing weight, reading more, being more confident, taking more risks, quit smoking, spend more quality family time, finding your passion, starting a thank you journal, not caring so much of what others think and cooking more organically to name a few. It was touching to hear so many people joining together in the efforts of becoming stronger, better people.Whatever your mission was the goal was to set it and then achieve it with a positive outlook, dedication and a sense of community supporting you. That is what Loft & Learn is all about. Congrats Loft & Learn Village!
