August 1st to August 31st, 2014.
Someone told me before 21 days makes something a habit. I previously took a purity course online, but didn't take it too seriously after a while. I was more focused on completing assignments versus allowing the information to sink in. I had got behind and wanted to play catch-up. My heart was not in the right place after I got behind. No accountability, even towards the end, where I submitted 10 lessons in one day to be finally finished.
In the end, the online course provided me a mentor, who I did not take too seriously either. My heart was not in the right place. She discussed how it takes 21 days to make something a habit. I thought she was nuts. I am already going without sex. Without companionship. I even thought about lying in the lessons, but I could not bring myself to do it.
At the end of each lesson, there was an accountability section. Did you partake in any sexual activities? Thoughts? What can you do to improve?
The other day, I had an interview with Tranea Prossner, author of Celibacy, What Was I Thinking?, for my capstone project at Full Sail University. I will publish the interview here, once I have permission to release audio footage (two weeks). I read the book previously for review. I thought of issuing myself this challenge, while thinking doing church.
Pathway to Peace
During the Pathway to Peace class at FallBrook, discussed relationships. We can't have a good relationship with others, if we don't have a good relationship with God. The teacher also said people can't behave like they want and ask for forgiveness later.
I have done this plenty of times. Do something, I know is wrong, then ask for repentance. True repentance means I have to try to turn away from sin instead of doing it over and over again.
Temptation is only what you want to do. You can't be tempted if you don't want it.
The post sat in my journal for a few days because I wasn't sure whether or not to post it, but with celibacy comes accountability. I need to be held accountable.
The 30 Day Challenge
I also made the blog for Adults only during this challenge.
Currently, for the month of August, I have gone
