As I reach the arch of this month of challenges, I wonder how long will the momentum last. When will I run out of steam? Challenging myself to meditate every day is great way to center and refuel and, with today’s challenge, I’m injecting a much needed fuel enhancer into my month.
Today’s challenge: Find passion in all that you do. Don’t just do it. Do it with passion. If you can’t find the passion, don’t do it or find a way to find your passion. Live each day, moment with a dose of passion, big or small.
Going through the motions is sufficient for an adequate life. It falls pretty short for the extraordinary, unrecognizable one that I’m aiming for this month. I’m not going to do my challenges because I said so and don’t want to be disappointed if I don’t make it. I’m doing these challenges because my life is at stake. Without them, I’ll end up drowning in the numbing mediocre.
In choosing this month’s challenges, I’m working areas that are quite important to me. Since my life depends on this, why not put my life’s energy into the rest of the challenge days? If I cannot do a thing with passion then I won’t challenge myself to it. Going even further, if something is not worth putting my whole self into it, I won’t do it. Laundry gets done because clean clothes elevate me. Writing is an honor I give myself. The mundane, the extravagant, the minuscule–all of it will be done with passion. It’s time for me to go with passion or go away. I’m here to stay and feel and marvel at each moment while I’m at it. How about you?
Today’s victory: I managed to haul 6 bags of sensitive documents to the Upper East Side Shred-a-thon as promised on Day 8. My shreddables became a thing of the past when a lovely gentleman dumped the bags into a huge bin that his ProShred truck swallowed.
I watched my documents transform in this nifty monitor.
The paper will be recycled into industrial paper. New life for my clutter. That feels good.
Gratitude: I am grateful for my uncanny good luck!
On the horizon: Making room for something new
