Day 2


I realize now that I have less time than I thought! I always thought I had scads of it .. but it turns out I am scrambling to get these posts in so far (and I really want to do it). BUT here goes: even if I have to do Level 1 most of the time, I'm happy to be a part of the process. My One Empowering Action Daily will be to write for 15 minutes a day. I have a harder time following up with commitments/schedules than I would like to admit (harder than anything else probably), so it will be challenging to do this, but I know very, very useful. I posted the above picture simply because I love it (outdoor art created by a friend's partner) and because it symbolizes creativity and openness, which is what I can feel when I write, so this will be my symbol of inspiration to stick to the process. For some reason, writing this today makes me want to do handsprings and say thank you. Thank you to Denise for writing the book, thank you to this little community for going through it together, thanks to blogs for being here, thanks to Jamie for moderating, thanks to nature... the list could go on. Thanks.

Thanks for the smile - there's alot of joy in this post!

I'm a day behind (and ok with that!) so haven't made a commitment yet, but am considering writing as mine too. I did a writing group for years where we wrote 15 minute pieces at a time, and the things we wrote were sometimes awesome. 15 minutes is a good time committment, not overwhelming, and you can really get somewhere.

PS I love the picture too. And I have a sweet mental image of you doing handsprings right across it in joy now.
