Anyway, for me it's a good time to re-evaluate and re-commit to what I want to accomplish and how I want to be going in to the "new" times we are facing. I don't believe the end of the world will happen on 12/21/12 but I do believe we are in a time of re-creating who we are and how we want to be in the world going forward.
A good way to do this is to briefly revisit your focus for this year. For me, "less is more" and "do what's in front of me" were my guiding principles. Simplifying and letting go have been important to me for years and this year it was my main focus. As I think about it now, it will continue to be for my 100 days. As a clearer focus, not only will I evaluate my current possessions for whether "I love it, use it, need it" but I will also see if they are in line with my values as well. Another test for me is to see whether it enhances who I am now or whether it enhanced who I used to be. This is a biggie for me: I aspired to so many things that just didn't work out the way I had hoped, and I know that letting go of them will allow the space for who I am now to flourish. I want to dedicate these 100 days to being in the now rather than living in the past or living for the future. No more saying "I used to be ..." "I used to think ..." or "When blah blah blah ..." All we have is right here ... right now ... in every moment!
I believe that questions are important. So for the first few days of this challenge, I will be answering the following questions for myself:
What values are important to me right now?
What do I really want?
Why do I crave simplicity?
What do I need to let go of that continues to hold me back?
Who am I and what's my purpose?
As always, enjoy your journey ...
