Thursday3 Weekly Selfie Challenge

Take Five Minutes & Capture Your Right-Now Life

What is the Thursday3 Weekly Selfie Challenge?

One Photo + Three Right-Now Facts = A Weekly Documentation of You

Take five minutes each week and document who you are right now.

Thursday Three is an easy way to get a little bit of your story down each week.

The rules are simple:

  1. Snap a photo of yourself.
  2. Write down three things about your right now.
  3. Tag three friends to play along with you.

Play along on Instagram, where documenting your life comes naturally. We use the hashtag #Thursday3. It’s a great way to make new friends (I love internet friends) and learn more about yourself in the process. If you’re not an instagram person, you can easily turn this into a blog post, a facebook post, a tweet or a number of scrapbook projects!

Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done.

How I Take on the Challenge:

Each week, on Thursday (usually afternoon) I find a place to take a picture of myself. Sometimes it’s a front-facing camera selfie. Lately, I’ve been taking a lot of mirror selfies. We have a great set of mirrors at the end of our hallway and the lighting is perfect.

I usually snap a couple of shots until I find one that I like. I’m not looking for perfection, it just usually takes me a couple of shots before I’m comfortable with the angles and where to look. I probably take about 3-4 shots each week. Although I will admit to throwing myself impromptu photo shoots during my Thursday3 time.

I upload my photo to instagram and I share three right-now facts about my life this week. Sometimes it’s how I’m feeling (headaches are a part of my daily life). Sometimes it’s about what I’m working on, what I’m making for dinner, or what I’m planning for the weekend. Nothing is too big or too small.

It’s a space for me to verbalize three things that are happening in my life right-now. By writing it down, I’m making it permanent. I’m challenging myself to think of and share three facts about my right-now life. Some weeks are harder than others, but that’s the beauty of a challenge.

Thursday3 Community:

My favorite part about the Thursday3 Weekly Selfie Challenge is sharing my photo and facts on instagram and getting into fun conversations with friends about what we’re all doing right now. It’s fun to see everyone’s cute face and see what everyone’s up to.  It’s a great way to meet new friends and keep connected with a community that reaches around the world.

Use the hashtag #Thursday3 on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to add your photos to the Thursday3 Weekly Selfie Challenge community.
