They say we teach what we most need to learn and lately that has been true for me. I have decided to tackle a new project…I am calling it my “creative challenge,” and it is SO BIG and so intimidating to me that I am not sharing it with anyone… just yet.
Every day, as I carve out time to work on this project, I am confronted by a ton of thoughts of why I can’t do it, why it’s impossible, etc., and then I spend a bunch of time diving into my spiritual tool kit to off load the negative thinking.
Needless to say, the project is moving at a snail’s pace.
It’s so easy to let the negative monkey mind chatter take over and I’ve had enough of it so here is my new commitment.
Today I am reminding myself of three very important things I seem to have forgotten:
One: I am reinstituting my formerly daily practice of ending each day reviewing something I did really well and acknowledging myself for it.
Second: At least once a week I am going to share the week’s biggest accomplishments with a friend. (I always tell Brian what I am doing, right and wrong, but it will be useful for me to share with someone else as well. If I can’t be proud of what I am up to then who will be?)
Third: I am dreaming up the “push presents” I will give myself as I reach each milestone along the way to making the creative challenge happen.
How are you going to be your own biggest cheerleader?
Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
