It has been a really positive week, keeping myself motivated with the positive affirmations seems to have worked well. One or two decisions have been made which means there has been a positive move in the direction of one of my little projects (more on that later).
When making a decision about something whether it be a holiday, applying for a job or something new that I would like to try I always ask myself is this the right thing for me? Will I be happy, will I be comfortable, will I enjoy it, will I be safe etc; Most of the time I have absolutely no idea because that is how life is, if we knew how things were going to work out all the time life would be boring or we would never bother to explore or try anything new. There have been times when I have made or what I have thought I have made a concrete decision and then changed my mind because it has not felt right for me. I do not mean that I have but something off because I have felt scared or anxious, but that I have put something off because deep down I have a restless, nagging feeling in the pit of my stomach that something is not right for me. I guess it is called listening to your intuition and I think it pays to do so. As a person that very much listens to her intuition I often find myself going against the expectations of what others would expect me to do, or I often find my self not doing what I think I should do in favour of what feels right for me.
As mentioned in the About page of this blog, in 2011 I sat down and wrote a book, in 2012 I spent a lot of time editing it, changing things, rewording it and this year I have spent a lot of time trying to decide what to do with it. Putting it to one side and forgetting about it does not seem right but neither does publishing it in book form either. The process of trying to get something published seems painful, not much fun and full of restrictions, and the last thing I want is for my writing to be that. As you know I enjoy putting words down on paper (or print), it is something I enjoy, I never think about (or I try not to) whether people like what I write or not, or I try not worry about what people think because it is just something that I absolutely love doing. So although it is not really favoured method of publishing a book, I have decided to blog it. By doing it this way I get to have the freedom to just do the thing I enjoy the most, I can change it if I want to, it just seem the right way for me to do it, I feel both excited and nervous. My biggest challenge is presenting in a way that is fun, interesting.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. Ralph Waldo Emerson.
