Day 8 and back to my 5:30am routine as I'm at home again now. The familiarity of the silence , my space all set up
ready to go, really brings a sense of ease to dealing with the early start but also to my body and mind. I do all my SAVERS and as I start cycling my mind wanders into refelection.
My approach to my day, my tasks, my thoughts, my feelings and my actions have changed. There is an increased level of focus on the goals in my life. I'm making good steps towards making life better than it already is. My attitude to risk has changed.
For example I've wanted to start a life blog for a number of years and never got around to doing it well and consistently. I had a few ideas but generally wondered what I would write about would even confress I had underlying fears of what people would say, think, or how they would respond. Even though many friends encouraged me relentlessly to share my life in this way, as they loved hearing about my day, things I have learnt, sharing in my experiences and genuinely thought others would too. Self doubt and dramatising potential outcomes analytically in my head ment I had given myself unrealistic expectations and pressure to be a certain level of perfect. As a result nothing ever came about.
In assessing risk we as humans tend to focus more on what could potentially go wrong or what we may lose or sacrifice rather than any potential gain. Was the fear of failing in some way holding me back? Have you ever felt this way?
So still riding my bike and thinking of the week past I realise at how many times I like many others have stayed in a situation because we tell ourselves that things will somehow just get better or we come up with a list of excuses to not make any changes so that we stay feeling safe and in our comfort zone. I can hear myself saying in the past 'I'm being realistic' or 'it's the sensible thing to do'.
So where am I going with this realisation? I said earlier I had an increased level of focus on goals and life. My attitude towards risk had changed. This is because I have this time daily for personal development to grow in mind, body and spirit. The blog posts have maintained as an invisible accountability partner and as I add to the topics from my knowledge, experiences and sharings I'm hoping that one day they will help or inspire someone else who finds them.
I am finding the sharing is releasing any locked in fear of the unknown, is had become an almost an intuitive process that is allowing me to find my voice share a little light in this corner of the internet and it's also really fun as I'm being creative!
I found a great video on YouTube below that I wanted to share with you all and hope you consider.......
