I am proud to say, I did what I promised myself. Last week and today, I spent a huge amount of time working on my writing pieces. I had to edit the crap out of them because they need to come out and play. I did the best I could for where I am now. I didn’t choose to distract myself with anything else. I focused on my tasks until I was pleased. And I got my exercise in too.
Not to mention my few other projects. Like the creation of a logo and the planning of a special event next weekend. I did three loads of laundry, grocery shopping, and then put away all those clothes and groceries. And then made sure to be completely present to do the background music for my son’s pretend video game, Happyland. Or was it Easytown? As well as cook and feed and clean up dishes and a dirty child.
I’m thrilled because I have gotten out of my own way for the first time in my life. I’m not throwing down hunks of self doubt to trip me up. I’m not treating my anxiety with anything anymore. And I’m not worried about the thoughts I’m sure others have or should have. I’m being me, doing my thing and knowing that I am good at whatever it is I choose to do. Can I get an Amen?
