Welcome to week 30. My apologies for week 30 being a week late. I hope the week off gave you time to catch up.
Sometimes life throws you a curve ball or two, or maybe more and can stop you dead in your tracks. You may have even seen it coming. It could also decide to sneak up behind you, when you least expect it and totally blindside you, knocking you off of your horse (so to speak).
Maybe it’s a wake up call, telling you to stop and reassess. Reassess your job, family, friends, your relationships, habits, or way of life in general. It could be anything that you’ve been ignoring, neglecting or simply is not serving you and needs addressing right now. Maybe it’s a situation you’ve been pretending isn’t happening, for all these years, telling yourself that this way is best for everyone. But is it really? Is it best for you?
It could be a warning of sorts. Is the Universe trying tell you something? Maybe the Universe has been trying to tell you something, but for some reason you’re not listening. Sometimes it takes major curve balls to smack you along side your head to get you to pay attention.
Maybe it’s simply a message that needs to be heard. A message to remind you to start really living, To take a chance, to create a life that makes you happy. Life is certainly too short to spend it being miserable.
Imagine your life is a novel. What would you like the rest of the book to look like? What changes need to be made to get you there?
So yes, I have fallen off of my horse due to a few curve balls and am still attending my wounds. I will eventually get back up on that horse. So please bare with me while I adjust my saddle. My apologies again for missing a week.
For an extra challenge this week. I want you to go out into nature to create. Even if it’s just a quick sketch or a jotting down of ideas. Spend some time alone, outside, enjoying the weather. Sketch it all out in graphite first. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes scribble it down and you can make corrections later.
For those of you who would like daily or alternative prompts, I have prepared a Daily Journal Prompt List. You can find it in the Facebook Group under Files.
