Writing every day
I made a commitment to write a blog post, every day, for the next 30 days. This is leading me on a voyage of discovery, mostly about myself. This has nothing to do with promising anyone else, and everything to do with whether I am committed to do what I say, to be authentic, to write my truth, to follow through, to learn new skills, and to honour myself.
Taking on a challenge like this is revealing. I have always told myself (those stories again) that I’m not self-disciplined. I make excuses not to keep to a schedule, I procrastinate with all the skill of a master, I avoid even though I really enjoy writing, all to fit into that box labelled “No Self Discipline”. Yes, our stories become self-fulfilling prophesies.
So, this challenge is challenging me to change that story! Even if it takes me until midnight each day, I will be writing something that I can put into a blog post. Not because it’s expected of me, nor is it to impress, it’s to prove to myself that I am of value! I have something to share, in my own inimitable way, and it’s important for me to remember that the only way I am going to increase my worth is if I believe it. I’m breaking through barrier after barrier, getting a clearer idea of who I am and what I can do to make a difference in other people’s lives.
I am claiming a state of effortlessness, ease and grace, as I endeavour to write myself a new story. One in which my connection to you, through what I write, is hopefully drawing you closer. Connect with me and let’s have a conversation of the meaningful kind.
Oh Muffy, I am abundantly glad you’ve committed to this, mainly because I SO enjoy reading your stories! Being at a stage where I am questioning if I even know who I am or what/where I’m meant to be, it is wonderful to hear how you are walking into life and unravelling your core self. Keep those posts coming!!! Much love xox Terry T
I’m so delighted to see you here Terry, thanks for your encouragement.
I know how hard that challenge is but can see the benefits and I love how you express yourself. I should challenge myself to the same, although I’d probably write lines of poetry.
Yay! You got through Barbara. Do it with poetry …
Being so far away from you, and not being able to connect too often via Skype, this is a lovely way to keep connected. I value your insights. There is always a gem of a lesson somewhere between the lines.
Aww Michelle, I miss you too, I’d love to see you expressing yourself too.
