Day 5- Struggle

I am so grateful to Effy for creating this Blog Along. We're on Day 5 and it's getting a bit easier, and a bit harder at the same time.

TODAY'S NUDGE: What is something you struggle with? What battles are you fighting that most people know nothing about? What's something about you or your life that makes you feel weird, or different, or isolated?

I really struggle with attachment to outcome. I get an idea in my head of how something is supposed to be and then I really struggle if things don't go quite as expected. I like to make plans, have lists, stick to a schedule. While this helps me in my day job ( I work from home and really need to be organized), I feel it prevents me from really enjoying the spontaneous moments of life. 

I regularly practice being in the moment and going with the flow. I meditate, work with crystals, use Reiki and shamanic journeying, and practice yoga. Even with all of these tools, my ego likes to attach to that outcome. When I get very still, have faith, and get clear on what I want, without worrying about *how* it will arrive or look, miracles happen. I have witnessed this.

Here's to allowing more miracles! *clinks cup with you

Do you struggle with attaching to outcome? Why or why not? What tools do you use? I would love to hear from you.

Here We Go

I can't believe it's September already! I'm relaunching my website on a new platform as a part of a Blog Along with someone I admire greatly.  

The thing I admire most about her is what I am going to try to do differently this time around. I am an INFJ . I am usually quiet, shy, and tend not to trust easily. Being vulnerable does not come easy to me. In Effy's world, she shares.......and I mean she SHARES, ups, downs, ins, and outs, and I LOVE it!  Her voice resonates with me. I do not consider myself an artist per se, but her approach to life inspires me.

I decided to join her Blog Along as a way of stepping outside my comfort zone. This has been a repeated theme in my life for the last 6 months. All of the good stuff can be found outside my comfort zone. I KNOW this. Now I'm working on taking the steps with faith and not worrying about outcome. Take a look at her site and join us for the month of September.
