Day 7 • Write Your Ideal Life Narrative
My family has a home on the U.S. mainland and one in the Virgin Islands were we split our time during each year. These homes have character and are alive with beautiful honey colored floors or large earth colored tiles, lots of natural light, sky lights, ample open space, a sound system wired throughout the house, big fat molding, comfortable seating, quiet nooks, a courtyard, and neighbors that create. I have 3 healthy vibrant funny children of both genders, a curious cat (who sheds minimally), a house-trained yorkie (with a cute face like an ewok), an abundance of plants, loud uncontrollable laughter, random spontaneous dance, constant music and big and unbridled art. My family actively pursues good relationships.
Day 8 • Reflect, Comment and Connect
I'm not going to redo this assignment.
Day 9 • Do One Thing
OMGeeeeee!!! Last time I was whining about having an inkling what to do and not wanting to do it and while re-tackling this assignment I realized SINCE THEN I DID IT!!!! SCORE BABY!!!! I won't go into details to protect the innocent but lets suffice to say I've done specific things to reach out to a difficult family member.
Moving right along … this has been a nebulous area in my brain (to put it lightly). I did a huge "analysis table" in this post then decided to delete it after returning to this post a few days later. A few days ago my therapist mentioned "picking one thing" during a discussion about me feeling like a "Jane of all trades master of many" LOL. Basically he said if I'm good or great at several things then it's really a choice between "good, better and best" or "great, greater and greatest". I realized I've been so afraid to pick one thing thinking it would be the wrong choice, but if I truly believe I'm great as several things then he has a point … no choice is "the wrong choice" so I might as well pick something.
I'm already doing several "one things" in many areas, for example
- art = I'm taking art classes all summer
- blogging/vlogging/editing videos/natural hair = I have this blog, my vlog & edit my own videos
- taking & being in pictures = I take my own photos
- picking outfits = just personally love doing this
- helping other re-define their look = have done this for several friends
- dance = I choreograph for our church's dance ministry
- self-discovery = I'm constantly reading, studying, I&
#39;m in therapy, the list goes on
- travel/cruises = I travel often and blog about it here
So I'll do "one thing" in bullet #1 and find out how to make prints of my art work so I can set up an online shop to sell them.
GOODNESS THAT WAS HARD!
Day 10 • Make a Bucket List
I always maintain a bucket list.
Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Nappyness,
