I’ve mentioned a couple of times that my theme for this Expedition is Commitment. Today, I want to talk very briefly about how I’m approaching this theme so far.
For one, being on this Expedition is a commitment in and of itself.
So, I’m noticing how I feel and what is coming up for me as this Expedition progresses. Taking note of, for instance, all the freaking out that happened on Day 1 and how the 3 days since Day 1 have felt remarkably calm.
Also, my intent is to journal briefly every day using the prompt:
And just notice where my mind takes me. Today I wrote:
commitment is scary. equivalent to being trapped. easy (if you love the thing or person you are making the commitment to). like breathing. natural. like a sunflower turning to face the sun as the sun travels across the sky.
And THEN, I dove into some really meaty stuff about what commitment means to me and a not-very-helpful pattern I have around commitment. 800 words later I saved my entry (on 750words.com)… only to discover, right now, that all of it is gone other than the bit above. What?!
Perhaps that pattern has now shifted. *crosses fingers*
So, today is Day 4. How does Day 4 find you? How are you approaching your chosen theme?
