Here I am again- MONTHS after publishing my last post.
Now, instead of unnecessarily justifying my excuses for not writing, or allowing myself to feel guilty about it- I’m just going to start over…
There, that was easy!
As of late, I’ve been feeling that nagging, annoying nudge to write, and I’ve been ignoring it mostly. But today, after I finally picked up my journal -and after experiencing that renewed sense of calm and accomplishment- decided hey, why don’t I re-start that ol’ blog again while I’m at it!? So here we are.
…Never without an intention, though!
I’ve decided June will be the month that I track what I’m grateful for. I spend far too many hours consciously (and subconsciously, I’m sure) focused on what’s missing in my life; when I have so many wonderful things to be happy about. This morning I had my daily coffee with my bare feet in the grass, enjoying the warm spring sunshine on my face; followed by a 10 minute guided meditation and 5 minutes of quiet reflection- just me and my journal.
It’s amazing, the mental shifts that can occur in such a small period of time- if you allow yourself. Did I have to force myself to turn off my phone and drag my ass out the door to do so? Of course! BUT when I did… I experienced a rush of creativity and imagination and felt that old momentum ball start rolling once again. Tons of ideas popped into my head and I felt so excited to start anew- I actually had to dial it back a few pegs, as staying consistent for me, means taking small steps, day by day- as opposed to running 100 miles an hour, straight into a wall!
Over the next few weeks I’m going to continue to practice this ritual, and use it to create a list of motivational guidelines that allow me to feel fulfilled- everyday (stay tuned) My ultimate goal here is to build my Manifesto- What makes me, ME- the best possible Me? What attributes can I bring to the table that are unique, purposeful and meaningful to my life? I look forward to sharing them with you!
