Time to Rock Orange

Last May when we came to the end of the YOU CHALLENGE, many folks asked for another round later in the year. The YOU CHALLENGE is such a special time of fellowship, encouragement, sharing, and walking together every day. So here we are! It’s time for our Rock-tober Challenge. This one is a little bit different than our spring challenge.

For October, you are challenged to do something THAT IS GOOD FOR YOU, THAT YOU ENJOY for 30 minutes every single day of the month. That’s 31 days.

We’re not just going to welcome autumn, or enjoy autumn, we’re going to ROCK autumn.

    Walk in the woods and talk to Jesus 30 minutes a day

  2. Deborah McClure says:

    I just love to read your blogs!! Yes autumn!!! Great idea!!!

  3. Denise Ross says:

    What an awesome post Rebekah. Loved it all. For me October is spring here, all the pretty flower smells, freshly mowed lawns and fire pit fires, BBQ and longer days with daylight saving beginning this coming weekend.
    I’ve already begun my special morning time with a half hour wake up run before work. I’m less stressed through the day, sleep better and happier for it. Waking up with sunrises, birds chirping, seeing the little bunny rabbits that sometimes play near the road I run on.
    It’s a special time for me, fresh and hopeful and thankful fir the gift of another day.
    I love those old Chevy or dodge? Trucks they’re so full of character and history. There is s fellow who lives in my suburb that drives s similar one and I love it. It’s all rusty in colour and so cute, I’d love to have one.
    I think I’d like to get back into doing my gratitude journal, it brings the joy factor back into life and reduces anxiety and worry fir me, so I’ll do that beginning Sunday.
    I love your farm, the history stories and the history you’re making there with your family. Always look forward to your posts.
    Have a fabulous day and definitely do that room in the yellow and purple, keep some white in there and it’ll be gorgeous.
    Happy days

    Hi everyone, my name is Chery, l For this challenge I will be walking everyday and on days that I dont get out to walk I will dance or do yoga.

  5. Carol says:

    I will accept your Rock-Tober challenge. I will either be reading or doing a craft project. I also plan to get up 30 minutes earlier to aid in getting more done in my Pink Zebra business.
    I have heard three on the tree many times. I lived in the south for a while and I believe that I heard it more from my grandpa than anyone. I love that truck! Treasure it because of what it is and who it belonged too.
    Your farm looks nice and I love the ATV trip that you took. I love my ATV, but I am well aware of the dangers of them as well.

  6. Marlene Capelle says:

    I’m going to stop for 30 minutes a day. Stop thinking I have to accomplish something every minute from 7:30am until 9:00pm. I will do yoga, meditate or read but I have to stop everything. I know, doing one of those things is still doing something but everyday I want to do one of those things and I don’t stop and do them. So that’s it.

  7. Nicole White says:

    Terrific post. We’ve recently relocated to Virginia so I’m looking forward to some beautiful fall color. I’m going to write every day either on a story or in my journal. Time to, since this move, get back to something I love.

  8. Kathy Poulsen Romero says:

    Hi Rebekah!! I was so excited when I received the message about the upcoming fall YouChallenge. It was so uplifting to be a part of the spring challenge. I’ve got a very exciting reason to challenge myself in the next nine months. My daughter got engaged two weeks ago and is planning a July 2018 wedding. So….not only do I want to be my best for her, but for myself as well. That gives me 9 months to loose 40 lbs, which were gained oh so gradually from lack of exercise, health problems and medications with weight gain as a side effect. I can do this, and I’m looking forward to being part of this awesome group and your positive influence. Thank you!!

  9. Sandi King says:

    Yea for October and the Me Challenge. I just read everyone’s and they are awesome. I love Sherriberri’s talk with Jesus – and Denise’s ‘gratitude journal’ – and Carol’s craft something and of course ‘walking’ which I have continued year round as often as I can. So I am into Family Genealogy and there is so much to do in that and I spend a lot of time on the computer already so besides keeping on walking as often as I can, and trying to work on my craft’s as often as I can and talking with Jesus I do every evening before I sleep, being grateful sounds like a good idea to start writing it down. But I think I need to do something else that will become a habit for me and improve on my health. i think I will try ‘meditation’ for 30 minutes a day. I will start learning about it before Oct 1st. Thanks for posting Rebekah. I really enjoyed it.

  10. Krista says:

    What I am really needing right now is some quite and me time. I need to step away from the world and all the things needing to be done. I will take my half hour at he end of the day so I can recollect my thoughts and feelings and go to bed feeling refreshed rather than stressed. I tend to relax the most with crochet but I would love to try meditation or yoga. Maybe I’ll try both until I decide which works best. I am so happy that October is almost here. All the colors, smells, tastes, and temperatures make it such a great time of the year. Plus, I look forward to decorating from here until the end of the year! Happy Fall!

  11. Cheryle Duffy-Lehrer says:

    Great photos and post Rebehah! This is my favorite time of year – I love to get out and watch the showy color change of the leaves. I will pick up my daily walking again for this challenge but I think along our River Front here in our small town. The Riverfront walkway is not far from the house and should be a nice way to celebrate and enjoy Falls arrival.

  12. Barbara rynn says:

    looking forward to this challenge. I plan to spend 30 minutes each day just walking and listening to all of nature around. Until Oct 14 I am in China for our son’s wedding, so my posts will be sporadic . But I am always thinking of this great group.

  13. Rebekah Teal says:

    Oh goodness, I’ve already changed my mind. What I really, really need is 30 minutes in the barn every day. So, yoga, out. Merlin, in. Yes now that feels right. 🙂

  14. Joan Hendrix says:

    Omg, where do you find this stuff (forest bathing. Really? Am I just clueless?) I love it! I’m at a weird place. Have been for 5 years now, which is weird in itself. Love your note. Thx.

  15. Shirley says:

    Love the challenge and my first reading of your lovely blog. Each day I will either sketch a scene from my yard or the surrounding mountains, or write a prayer, or write a short poem about this amazing season of the year
