361

12 Jul

 Our energy and the energy of the universe are always in flux, but we have little tolerance for this unpredictability, and we have little ability to see ourselves and the world as an exciting, fluid situation that is always fresh and new. Instead we get stuck in a rut- the rut of  “I want” and “I don’t want,” the rut of shepna, the rut of continually getting hooked by our personal preferences.

I am so thankful that I followed through with starting 365 till 30 because it has instilled such a simple joy into my life. It could have easily been something that sounded like a good idea but one I didn’t follow through with. I’m not going to lie, having to mark each day with my thoughts, lessons and accomplishments is a tad daunting. What if I have nothing to say? What if? What if? What if? I tend to get caught up in that “what if” thinking a lot. If nothing else I would like to learn how to manage that type of thinking this year. The good news- this project has forced me to be fully present in each day. I feel grateful for the blessings I already have while enjoying the process of working towards goals that excite me. They aren’t just passing days that I stumble through. They are days I want to fully enjoy.

So I have decided some posts may simply state things I am grateful for, inspire me or surprised me that day. Because, even though I have ten lofty goals to cross off a list in 365 days, I am quite sure there will be some surprises along the way.
