Week One-First Day

Good morning Dear Reader,

7:04am

Today is day one of the challenge. Admittedly I’m already a little afraid. Failure scares me to the highest degree and considering that’s a possibility, I have my reservations.

The morning didn’t start out as I had planned. I woke up late and didn’t do what I wanted…at the same time, it’s okay. I think my body really needed sleep. I don’t have to beat myself up. Plus the day has only just begun so there’s plenty of time to do what I want.

I will probably post throughout the day.

8:20pm

Today was pretty peaceful.

Something that I learned today:

I’m very into mysticism and I realize it makes me feel empowered by studying it.

I think that finding something that makes you feel empowered is essential to healing. I’m not sure if you remember but I had a post awhile back with the five steps to recovery being:
1. Hope
2. Connection
3. Empowerment
4. Self-Responsibility
5. A Meaningful Life

I think that studying mysticism makes me feel stronger and allows me to explore myself better.

  1. I know what you mean about the fear of failure. Starting anything new puts us in unknown territory where we’re not quite sure what will happen. It’s especially hard when we’re doing something in a public venue where others can see how we progress.

    The fact you took the first step means you’re already a success for consciously accepting a challenge and the goals you’ve set are all good ideas. Activities like journaling, writing and drawing are all wonderful ways to help the mind grow as well as make a person feel better by expressing your views about the world in so many different creative ways. You’ll do great!
