Challenge Day 9: Finish Things

I’m starting today’s post with an unexpected surprise.

Today’s victory: I checked my site traffic just for kicks and saw that it more than doubled thanks to a generous mention from another site.  I’m a huge Bikram yoga aficionado with a number of 30-day challenges under my belt and it was Heather Molina’s timely, informative Bikram Yoga Tips for Beginners that got me on my journey with ease and clarity.  For that I am grateful and I’m grateful again that she mentioned me in her blog about her experience at this Fall’s Bikram Yoga Teacher Training.  I look forward to following her footsteps in Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in the Spring.

Today’s challenge: Finish things or declare that you will never finish them and let yourself off the hook so you can focus on what you love.

Every time I don’t finish something: blogging, conversations, projects–you name it–it chips away at my belief in myself and adds itself to a pile of failures that, in turn, makes it difficult for me to finish anything else.  So, today I am putting in a plan to complete things that are important to me and I’m letting go of the burden of having to do things I will never do and just don’t care to do.  I will continue to re-organize my home.  I will not kill myself to alphabetize and re-read all the books I own.  I will not create projects that do not excite me and I’m repositioning myself as the diva of what gets done and discarded in my life.  Watch me.

Gratitude: I am grateful for secret, sweet moments where I can finally melt and all I am is the space between two sets of locked eyes.

On the horizon: Writing my heart out
