Today I am thinking that 50 blogs, in 50 days is a huge task, which makes me think about every journey that I have taken. At the beginning it always seems arduous and in the end, looking back, it’s like “that was not so bad”. These journeys show up as some goal that I set myself – write a book, pursue some qualification, lose the Christmas pounds. An idea pops into my head and I say, “That sounds great!” and I am off the blocks going to get it done. Somewhere down the line after I have stepped off, I feel a little unsure. “Can I really do this? Do I need to do this? What am I trying to prove?”
The answer is always the same. I am doing this because I want to do it. I am doing this because I choose to do it and I am doing this because I decided to it. Choice and Decisions are the things that get me through most of the these journeys and are very important to me. I live my life by making decisions and choosing to do what I want to do. They take me through the moments of doubt. When I become unsure, I remind myself that this was my decision and my choice.
Today I reaffirm the choice to write 50 blogs in 50 days. It is a decision that scares me in many ways, yet I am going to push through the fear of that and keep on blogging.
What keeps you going when you step off the block?
