The MeYou Health team recently asked Daily Challenge members to share an “epiphany moment” from their time in DC – something memorable that sparked a healthy change, extra motivation, or a new way of doing things. Do you have an important DC moment to share? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Daily Challenge member Samantha F. was left to restructure her life after an accident put her out of work. A major concern when transitioning out of the office was a life without the satisfaction of a good day’s work. She joined Daily Challenge as a way to find fulfillment outside of work, and she’s completed hundreds of challenges since! Here’s her story.
In April of 2015, I decided I wanted to find ways to feel like I was doing something – no matter how small – to feel like I was accomplishing something every day.
That's when I found Daily Challenge. It was perfect! The tasks were small enough that I could accomplish them fairly quickly, and doing so gave me a wonderful feeling of checking something off the list each day.
That September, I happened upon Walkadoo. It became important to me, no matter what craziness was going on in my life, to log in and complete my Daily Challenge and answer my Walkadoo walkie talkie. DC and Walkadoo really became grounding points for me. It might sound silly, but on dark days, they were the only thing that kept me going. Knowing that I had a daily challenge and walkie talkie to complete kept me in the game.
As time went on, I socialized more on DC and felt like I was making some friends. Daily Challenge was a place where I could post not only about that day’s challenge, but also about what was going on in my life. I love to write, and it was a great outlet for sharing little parts of my story each day.
The epiphany moment for me was realizing that people do care and that I do matter.
Daily Challenge has not only given me that sense of accomplishment each day, but it has given me friendships. It continues to be that one thing each day that I can count on.
No matter how much I wanted to crawl into a hole and hide, I didn't want to worry my friends on DC by not showing up.
DC and Walkadoo have had a big impact in my life over the last two years. They both make a difference in my life every day!
