Today is the finale of 30 blogs in 30 days! I did it! Yay!
Part of me is like “Whoa, you did it!! Good job!!” and then part of me is like “Of course you did it. Remember how you’ve decided that you are a person that just does what they say they are going to do?!”
And then all of me is just really surprised by how much I have enjoyed the process.
I have loved experiencing ME in a different way. I have loved connecting with YOU on social media and in real life. I have loved living life knowing that I am going to write a blog post every day.
It has become like a new form of meditation.
People always ask me if I meditate. If they should meditate.
I think the answer is yes and no.
NO I don’t think it is that important to to meditate in the traditional sense each and everyday.
BUT, YES I think it is so important to have some kind of Daily Practice.
Like actually the most important thing in the world.
Journaling. Breathing for 5 deep breaths. Reading. Writing. A gratitude practice. Actually meditating. Dancing like a nut. Blogging?!
A Daily Practice where you check in with yourself, literally in your own words, saying things like “Hi Self, what is up? Where are we? Where have we been? Where are we going? Is it on purpose? Are we being who we want to be? What do we need to remember? What are we grateful for? What is really important? What do we want?”
Because what happens then is the daily practice spreads throughout the day.
It is easier to catch ourselves before we snap at the customer service rep.
Easier to ignore the ding on the phone.
Easier to just watch and enjoy the baby playing with sand.
Easier to stay committed to whatever we are committed to.
Easier to achieve our dreams.
So blogging became a new Daily Practice. And it was really the act of knowing I would write the blog. It was like putting on “I write blogs sunglasses”, my perspective shifted. I began to look deeper and to stop more. To ask the big questions more and to listen more carefully.
Endless gratitude to my teachers for teaching me the value of the Daily Practice and to you for joining me on this journey!
AND don’t freak out!! Blog life is not over, it has just begun. Click over every Tuesday for a new post! We are going to a weekly format baby boos!
