I’m on the countdown to a big birthday at the end of the month, my 70th. I never dreamed I would get that old! That is going to be my biggest number, I’m counting downward from here on. But I’m getting ready for a big year. In fact it’s my year to get bigger in every way!
I’ve been doing a lot of work on releasing everything that doesn’t serve me. I do NOT want to carry that stuff forward! And I’ve been finding inspiration all over the place. Here is a link to a great video from Marie Forleo interviewing Adam Braun. He wrote “The Promise of a Pencil” about his mission to build schools all over the world and how one person can make a HUGE difference and get good things rolling.
At the end of the video he and Marie give a challenge, to take one step towards your own path of helping others. So yesterday I told my existing weightvest newsletter list about this new site. I’ve been hanging back waiting to be ready 😉 and now I’m stepping up to the plate. I was trying to please everyone as usual. You all know how that holds you back and keeps you stuck, don’t you??
Then another thing that has kicked me into high gear is reading “The Charge” by Brendon Burchard. He is convinced that we are all here to share our special expertise with others in this grand new world that’s being created right now that we all got a special invitation to be part of. Exciting times!!
I’m just beginning the book but he talks about people who feel caged in their lives, that’s not me, feel comfortable, that would be me, or feel charged, that would be me after I’ve finished the book. Comfortable is very seductive, you feel something is wrong, kind of blah, but you aren’t sure what it is. Well, he hit the nail on the head for me, a lack of challenge. So I’m taking some risks, sticking my head out of my comfort zone, and exploring some big new challenges.
Often in my life I have felt weird and ashamed about my need to be off on a new trail all the time. My family has rarely appreciated that 😉 But I have realized now that it is one of my talents. I don’t throw everything out of the canoe and start fresh each time, I add the important bits of new learning to the varied life that I find exciting so I’m glad to get up in the morning.
So I’m planning a 100 day challenge, starting on my birthday, the 31st. My granddaughter and I are having an aerial circus lesson. She is pretty good already, she went to camp last Summer, but I have been doing aerial yoga to get stronger and waiting for a kick in the butt to really begin. I don’t want to perform, I just want to be strong and feel invincible again. So I think it will be more than just that, I think I will challenge myself in every arena; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I’ll see what ideas Spirit comes up with by then.
I will post a short video every ten days of the 100 to show you how I’m doing. I kind of hesitated to write that because I’ve started to follow so many people on the web with that kind of announcement and they have just drifted out of sight after a week or two. 100 days is over 3 months!!
I can and will do this, beautiful women!
Yep, and now I have to 🙂
If anyone wants to join me in their own 100 day challenge let me know in the comments section below and we can all root for you.
I just made a free morning meditation mp3 for you all and put it on the site here. I do it myself every morning with daily variations but this will be a basic version for connecting as a channel between Heaven and Earth.
So I will send this post out as the first newsletter but it will always be on the blog as well and I’ll put up an RSS feed button as soon as I figure out how.
Go watch that video, it will inspire your day, and tomorrow morning you can start your day with the meditation mp3.
