The Journey To Myself

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do in the last five months of 2019.

5 months.  22 weeks.  153 days.

I’ve decided to concentrate on the days.  For the 31 days of August, I’ve decided to continue on the journey to myself.  I’m going to continue to be nice to myself with a twist.  I’ve decided to add two new parts of myself I’m going to be nice to.  They are my writing self and my money self.

Every day I’m going to do one nice thing for myself, my money self and my writing self.  The reason why I added these two is because I think I’ve been neglecting these areas of myself and I would like to get to know them better.  I’m not as in touch with my writing self or my money self as I would like to be.  I’m hoping that bringing attention to these two areas will bring me closer to who I want to be.

I’m excited to do this, but at the same time, a little hesitant because I’m used to giving those two parts of myself attention.   Sure, I write this blog and work on other writing projects and I am good with my money, but I think in these two areas I just skim the surface of what I could be.  I guess, in a way, reaching my potential scares me because I have to put myself out there and show more of myself to the world and I’m not used to doing that.

I write, but it’s in private.  Only my counselor knows about this blog.  My family and husband know about my writing, but I have told no one else.  Not my coworkers.  Not my in laws.  I think it’s time I come out of the shadows and into the light.  My body tingles with fear.

Yes, have been hiding.  Growing up I was told not to let my let my light shine.  Guess what?  In August, I’m going to try to let a little bit more of my light shine.  I think I’m going to use this as my theme for August.

Letting More Of My Light Shine.

I like that.

What a great way to start the month!  I’m scared, but it’s time to deal with that fear.  Off I go to write in my journal.

Have a great day everyone!

  1. I think we are all brought up that way. Thank goodness today’s generation gets a little more positive reinforcement. We sure didn’t. So you go for what you want and don’t let anyone stop you — including yourself.
