What was I thinking getting into a month long blog challenge? Yes, that means 31 days. I know I could stop or I could keep going and do what I can. I can make the effort to write every day. Maybe I’ll do 31 blogs and maybe I won’t. One decision I made was to not beat myself up over this. I will do what I can. I have never joined a month long blog challenge.
I have joined a month long writing challenge but it wasn’t anything you had to share. Thank heavens because some of it was raw, too raw to share. Now I see them as just stories, past stories that can be looked it and let go. When you focus on the past and past hurts, you just keep feeding the same circuits in your brain and relive the hurt, the pain and soon you create new situations to keep that same pain alive.
I am choosing to be done with that. I am choosing to be happy, to validate myself from within. It makes my life easier to live. Choosing to be happy no matter what is going on in your life is easier too.
I wanted so much to be grown up and go to work! Now I want to be a kid again and play, create, have fun. And I know of far more things to do now than I did then. How can I create a life where everything is taken care of and I can play, create, and serve others? That’s my real challenge.
I need to set aside some down time to just play. Do you set aside time to chill, to relax, to play? What do you do to feed your joy?
