"...the next step is the most important step. Take it
So, I did 41 days of yes-ing way back a long while ago, and, since I have pretty much been in paralysis mode over these last several weeks (until a few days ago), I've decided it's very much time to begin this again. Plus, looking back to that time, I very clearly remember how deeply powerful and empowering it was.
I'm thinking about that sign I always pass on one of my favorite walking/running trails; the sign that says "Off Leash Area." I feel a bit like I've been unleashed, like whatever has been holding me back has broken free somehow, like the floodgates have collapsed and now I'm spinning in a sea of goodness and inspiration and boundlessness. It feels a bit like flying, and, at the same time, it feels a bit like standing rooted way down deep in blossoming richness.
Today, which is officially Day 1, I am going to do something that feels super, super scary - something I've had the nudge to do for a very long time but just haven't been able to muster the courage. Tonight, I will be reading one of my poems aloud at an open mic poetry reading. YIKES and YAY! I will report back to you with how this went. Wish me courage!
Okay. That's it for now. I will be checking in regularly to share these 41 days with you. I'd so love it if you'd come along on this ride. Please feel free to share in the comment section.
With love and excitement for new beginnings,
