SINGLE STEP 365 ~ DAY 126

DAY 126

CHILL

Crisp air pushes through closed doors and windows

goose flesh rises, revives, reminds

the mind to be careful about what it lets in.

SINGLE STEP 365 ~ DAY 121

DAY 121

The death of Amy Bleuel side swiped me. She was a light in this dark world. She gave people hope, the belief that they mattered, and that their feelings were important. Since I learned of her passing, the idea of posting these 365 day posts seemed… unimportant. In my sadness, I realized I may be closer to my purpose than I ever have been.  The thing about purpose is that it can cause tension, pain, and nervousness. I’m not sure exactly where, how, or in what ways this blog will continue, but it will continue. Emotional turmoil and trauma is real. For too many people. Just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t cut to the core with razor accuracy. Amy’s passing was a collision of trauma, pain, and truth. Today I give my voice permission to speak and carry on, in some small way, her vision. So bear with me. My blog is still about writing words on the page, following my dream of being a writer, but now will also be about pulling words from the dust and depths of the unspoken and allow them to be heard.

You are not alone.

SINGLE STEP 365 ~ MINDFUL ~ WRITE YOUR LIFE ~ DAY 59

FAT TUESDAY.

Fat Tuesday is the day before Lent in the Catholic tradition. 

It is a day of excess and of storing up for the forty days of fasting to come. 

Even if you aren’t Catholic, my question for you is to ponder what you could “give up” in your daily life, for a such a short time really, to hopefully better yourself? To help you learn something profound about yourself… Something so simple as giving up a bad habit or a vice that could change you in immeasurable ways. 

For me, my goals are simple but personal, (I am not a practicing Catholic at the moment, but grew up Catholic, and on so many levels this tradition will always be a part of my life) however at the end, on Easter Sunday, I hope to come out the other side having learned a lesson of sorts. By giving up something I do daily, something that maybe isn’t always good for me, what can I learn about myself? How can having it or not having it in my life make me a better/different person? How does it change the way I interact with my family and friends? How does it help me accomplish my life goals??

So, my question to you is, what is your biggest vice? If you had to give it up for forty days, even as an experiment, how do you think it would affect you? How will it affect the way you look and life and everything it contains. How could it change you for the better?

SINGLE STEP ~ MINDFUL ~ WRITE YOUR LIFE ~ DAY 55

Go for a drive.

After a long week there’s nothing better than getting in the car and going for a drive along winding roads lined with scrub oaks and white picket fences. You never know where you’ll end up. Trust me, you’ll be ready to write.
