Fear of failure. I’m a perfectionist, or at least a part of me is and I struggle to accept that my best is good enough because perfection is a myth. In the meantime I struggle to focus on the challenge and not the outcome. But every day is a new beginning and a chance to start again. It’s become a joy to experience and search for the blessings of the day, instead of focusing and worrying about the challenges.
A 4:00 am wake up call is no way to start the day….unless you are expecting it. However, the day is going well so far, which is kind of surprising. I’m on day 2 of my new plan and so far I’m feeling great about it. I’ve read that it takes at least 21 days to make a new habit so I’m off to a good start.
I’m very excited because I feel like my creativity will continue to expand as I focus on my writing consistently and I am enjoying the confidence and motivation that I’m experiencing. I know that not all days are going to feel like this but I intend to start looking for the blessings in my life instead of focusing on the challenges.
Lots of things to do before grad school starts back up but that is a list for later today. For this morning my thoughts are flowing and I’m heading off to capture them. I know that today is going to be a great day!
Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last you create what you will.
George Bernard Shaw
Not my picture and I’m not sure what the location is but I find the image very inspiring!
My new plan – to go after my dream instead of just talking about it or playing at it. This is the first step…a place to record my thoughts and inspiration!
Starting with one of my favorite quotes…
“Creativity requires the courage to let go of conviction!”
