Week 12 ~ Recovering a Sense of Faith
As we come to the end of this 12-week journey, it feels like just the beginning. While I have dipped in an out of this process many times over the years, this is the first time I feel like I fully committed to it and fully reaped the benefits.
Just a few of the changes I’ve noticed:
~ I am more compassionate with myself. Expecting less perfection and more just showing up in whatever way I am able at the moment.
~ I am having more fun. Laughing more, playing instead of producing.
~ I am taking more risks. Sending our stories that feel dangerous to me, diving into the darkness on the page, sitting there instead of running away from what I find.
~ I feel more in flow with life. Even when I feel off or stuck, I am confident it is just part of the process and don’t immediately jump to the conclusion that I need to force myself to do something rather than just be or that I am lazy.
~ I am more aware of the synchronicity in my life, all the ways, big and small, that the Universe supports me.
~ I feel like I am living my life like an Artist’s Date rather than just relegating it to one hour a week. Bringing more fun, spontaneity, beauty and play into my life.
~ I am able to ask for help.
~ I feel lighter.
~ I feel more vibrant.
~ I feel more connected.
So, yes, this 12 weeks is over but this whole process of living my life from a place of faith is just beginning. I commit to continuing to do Morning Pages because they connect me to myself and what I want, need, think on any given day, at any given moment. They clear my mind and my energy.
I commit to continuing the Artist’s Dates. I recently bought this book described as “the merit badge handbook for every grown-up girl who’s said, “I wish I could…” Jam-packed with practical advice, here is step-by-step instruction and kick-in-the-pants encouragement for achieving 60 exciting badge activities.”
I commit to staying active within the Facebook group I created that supported us through this journey.
I commit to revisit and complete the tasks I avoided or didn’t take/make time to do.
I commit to continue living a creative life and shining my light out into the world.
