August 1st, More-Less-Different...
This felt like a great prompt to write about...what can I do more of, less of and different. As I brain dumped about it for a while, had no problem coming up with some ideas. Putting it 'out there' in a letter, makes me more accountable to them, haha!
More - I can be more trusting in 'letting go'. I do not have to come up with all the answers for myself and my life. Just let it be and turn it over spiritually. I can be more gentle, not sure this is a character trait anyone would suggest about me, as I tend to have a 'tough-love' demeanor at times. I can be more disciplined, seemed to be slacking in this department with my current flow of life. It used to be a strength - I want it back.
Less - I can watch less TV/headlines of news/current events. I have given this way too much time and it is messing with my energy, not surprising! There’s a balance between informed and consumed. I can be less concerned about finances, it’s worked out in the past, it will work out now and in the future. I can be less distracted amongst all the thoughts I am juggling in any moment, 1 at a time.
Different - I can approach my morning and nightly rituals different than the few bad habits I have fallen in to. Lots of opportunity when I choose to do this, exciting! I can listen more than I talk – I want to be that person, yet too often I stop and tell myself to be quiet. I want to hear what others have to say, I really do. Perhaps, 1 day-a whole day will go by without paying any regard to my past, loss, whys – that would be different, and welcomed!
Hmmm, what will come to be…day 20!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
