One week. Wow, I am doing it. I have committed to publishing one blog per day for the last seven days.
Actually, yes. I have wrote more blogs in the last week than I have in my entire life.
It’s not 100, or 1000, it’s a START.
To close out the first week of my challenge I want to just say, thanks. Yep, that’s it, thank you. Thank you to the strangers who barely know me who have found resonance in my daily thoughts. Thank you to my friends who have reached out to let me know they are proud of me. Thank you to the couple family members who let me know they are reading and the rest of my family who just are creepers on my page. And thank you to me, for not giving up and always resorting back to my “why” when times get tough.
In the last week I have learned a lot about myself. The most transformative of which is letting go of my resistance to writing. One week ago when I first started, the thought of publishing 30 pieces of blog content gave me anxiety. I could feel a wall of resistance wanting to paralyze me into not letting my thoughts just roll. Somedays I feel like my blogs are incredibly well written, others, I feel they are complete dog shit. The one variable that hasn’t changed is just fucking doing it. By forcing myself to just do it I can honestly say I feel as if I have broken through…
Ideas have started to flow to me more easily and effortlessly. No longer do I have that sick pitted feeling in the bottom of my stomach whenever I think about writing. I am free, my mind is fresh, and I feel myself growing each time I sit my ass down to write. This is a lesson that everyone can learn from!
Seven days ago I had only written a handful of blogs in my entire life and I committed to writing one blog per day for thirty days. This commitment is something I have yet to do even remotely close to ever before. I was a noob, rookie, and I was scared and being scared is exactly what drove me to start.
That’s just it, do you have something in your life that you have been wanting to do but are scared to commit?
Yeah? So, why haven’t you started?
I know you’re scared, but, let me tell you something. The same fear that was paralyzing me is now the same fear that motivates me. IN ONLY 7 DAYS! In 7 days I was able to transform the shakiness to confidence by simply starting something and committing to doing it.
It’s just like when you first start working out at a gym. The first few times you might be a little unsure and find yourself finding any reason a good one to miss out. Or, maybe you are wanting to take control of your health and are afraid of letting go in order for change. Whenever you start something new at first it might be a little overwhelming, frustrating, and a fight with yourself to commit or not. Once you make this commitment all the feelings of fear and anxiety are turned into feelings of inspiration.
That’s my challenge to you today… You have watched me commit to something that I have been wanting to do, it’s your turn.
I challenge you to stop watching me and JOIN ME!!
Commit tonight to the very thing you have been putting off that might just be your way into spiritual salvation.
Day 7 is a wrap and that’s 23 For 30!
