Day 50: That is a wrap?

Wow! Day 50 of #my500words….here we are. I don’t know if I want this challenge to end. While I have found it exhausting on busy days, it has been so enriching! It has forced me to put my crazy thoughts onto a “page”. And, this alone has been therapeutic…even when I wasn’t saying all thatContinue reading “Day 50: That is a wrap?”

Day 49: Pure Potentiality

I am 1 day from reaching my goal of 50 consecutive days of blogging 500 words! Wow. Once I complete this, I am going to (I think) take a little break and reevaluate what I want to do with this goal and this blog. But, I think it has been really helpful for me toContinue reading “Day 49: Pure Potentiality”

Day 47: Control and Love

Love and control…control and love. Two sides of the same coin? Or, are they just confused. Parents and children…children and parents. A confusing relationship that is so rich but is often fraught with frustration. Why is that? And, why do we try to control the lives of those we love the most. Is it fear?Continue reading “Day 47: Control and Love”

Day 43: A More Graceful Passion

I am not feeling much inspiration to write today. I think when I get to the 50 day mark, I will change my schedule to 5 days/ week or perhaps just allow myself some time off. Maybe I need a goal with the writing. I enjoy it because it helps me think things through. IContinue reading “Day 43: A More Graceful Passion”

Day 35: Why do I look outside?

Why do I look outside when everything I need is within? Why do I want someone else to validate my idea before I commit? Why? Is this human? Is this normal? Is this madness? Potentially yes to all of these questions. An important lesson that I keep having to learn over and over again isContinue reading “Day 35: Why do I look outside?”

Day 34: Fresh & Alive

Today is day 34. What a day it has been.  I have been listening to Eckhart Tolle and Oprah discuss presence and the importance of staying in the moment. And, I have been. It hasn’t taken my “bad” day away, but it has helped in ways I suppose. I am dog sitting and finding myselfContinue reading “Day 34: Fresh & Alive”

Day 33: Peace & Stillness> Desperation

Each day that I write, I find myself negating something that I wrote the previous day. That isn’t that cool! But, I find myself here today. So, a few posts ago, I said I was going to manifest pink elephants or a yellow Volkswagen. I was trying to manipulate the universe into telling me aContinue reading “Day 33: Peace & Stillness> Desperation”

Day 32: A new day and a new challenge

It is day 32, which means that I have accomplished my initial goal of writing 500 words a day for 31 days. I did it! It also means that I cultivated a habit during those 30 days and am now continuing to write. I have extended the goal from 31 days to 50 days. So,Continue reading “Day 32: A new day and a new challenge”

Day 31: How to know what you want

This morning, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I ate a lot of crackers and snacks very late at night, felt dehydrated before sleeping, and woke up earlier than I would have preferred. I have felt kind of crabby ever since. Now, I have an offer to do something that IContinue reading “Day 31: How to know what you want”

Day 28: Blue Duck Manifestation

Today is day 28! Wow. I can’t believe it has only been 28 days. If I am honest, I feel like I have been doing this for year. With well over 15,000 words, I am about 1/3 of the way done with my first non-fiction book 😉.  Kind of. In any case, I have gottenContinue reading “Day 28: Blue Duck Manifestation”
