Right now I’m working through a 28 day discovery program developed by my girl, Chinwe Osuagwu at Rock Solid Leaders. We’ve been in a mastermind for nearly 3 years. I’m so thankful to God for this group of women. We show up for ourselves and each other each and every Tuesday. This summer, it will make 3 years. They are blessings from God and among us there is so much talent, so many tools and resources. Anywho, Chin sent me a CD that she made over 10 years ago and it’s still impactful today. Each day, there is a task to help you discover purpose and passion. I keep revisiting day 1 and adding to what I love to do. I’m realizing that I love to do a lot. I want to go do all the things, like right now.
So far, I love to:
- Encourage others
- Make stuff with my hands
- Enjoy good food
- Decorate cakes
- Share my solutions with others
- Understanding why things occur/analyzing
- Surf social media
- Google sleuth
- Laugh at foolishness and share laughs with others
WHAT AM I THANKFUL FOR?
My tummy cooperating today. It’s about damn time, but the day isn’t over yet. ?
WHAT DID I ENJOY TODAY?
I had a wonderful box lunch. Honey mustard chicken sandwich and a brownie. Can I go to this meeting every day? They eat good!
HOW DO I FEEL EMOTIONALLY?
It’s been a good day! In writing down the things I love, it has made me reflect on the fact that I have time to do things I enjoy. While I often resent not having a family of my own, it truly means my life is mine. I’m not defined by motherhood, nor do I have to consider others when making decisions. Well, now I have to consider Zari, but you get the picture. It made me think about this speech Tracee Ellis Ross gave last fall. When I 1st listened to her last fall, I did hear her. But, I wasn’t fully ready to receive what she was saying. She’s so right though. My life is mine and I have to really live it for myself. Not for what people think I should be doing. There are so many social constructs that I’ve allowed to govern my life. The good news is there is still time to shed those constructs and really live for me. My life is fully mine and I’m going to be brave enough to enjoy it. Yay!??
HOW DO I FEEL PHYSICALLY?
All is well. ☺
HOW DID I WORK ON MY MONEY GOALS?
I’m trying to be frugal so I’m gonna cut the grass and I borrowed a spreader from my neighbor to put down the weed killer and fertilizer.
