Letting Go in 2015

Fed Up

In the midst of planning for 2015, I came across a suggestion that people should have a theme for the year. A short word/phrase that keeps you motivated and on task for the entire year. I made a note to think about a theme for 2015 and continued with my day.

As always, inspiration hits me in the oddest of places. While washing my hands, my subconscious whispered in my ear…

…LET THAT SHIT GO!

There was my theme for 2015. Brilliant!

For me to accomplish all the things in my mind map, I have to let go of whatever doesn’t do the following:

  • Make me happy.
  • Contribute to my goals/wants.
  • Support my values.

Have you considered creating a theme for 2015? If so, what is it? Let’s discuss in the comments!

 

 

Trusting Instinct

Aug

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of writing…then backspace, backspace, backspace.

Second guessing myself has been an underlying theme of the #30In30 challenge. Ninety percent of me wants to share so much (good and bad) through this blog. The other 20% is screaming hells no ma’am” and I withdraw. Yes, I should shut up that 20% that’s holding me back, but I let it win every single time.

Not anymore.

This challenge is forcing me to bite the bullet, suck it up, shut up the naysayers. I have to trust my instinct. If I write it, stick with it. See it to the end. If I want to make it personal, so be it. It’s my blog, my life, right? Maybe I’ll feel better getting all of this “stuff” out of my head. Make room for some good stuff.

It’s going to be an interesting week *bites pen*.
