Oh thankyou to Havi Brooks of The Fluent Self blog (go here!) for being wonderful and sharing some beautiful rituals with the world!
Okay, let's do this thing!
Thing One: Empowerment.
What I want: I've been awesomely brave and understanding and such through a lot of different things that are happening lately - I've actually surprised myself! Which is a wonderful experience. But I feel that I'm going to need a little bit of extra help to keep going through things this way. This may not have to come from others, though, as much as from myself.
How this could happen: I could discover a blog post, or a series of blog posts, about something so unique and perfect for this situation. Ditto for a book - or perhaps music!
Someone could suggest something that's worked for them, and that may become perfect for me.
Meditation, yoga, tai chi! Let's get our beautifying caps on!
My commitment: To myself and my own power. To being strong, but recognising when I need to be gentle, too.
Thing Two: Grace
What I want: There's a chance that a decision or two relating to me and my wants is going to be made very soon, and I need to cultivate the grace to accept whatever that decision may be - especially if it turns out to be not quite what I wanted to begin with.
How this could happen: Not overthinking it, but putting some energy towards being able to accept it. Remembering that, despite whatever the decision is, I am still me, and I'm still awesome.
My commitment: To be kind to myself, and not resent others involved. To remember what I fought for, and be proud of myself for trying.
Thing Three: To find the words.
What I want: Again, decisions and such. There are a few things that require my pen, and my sincere words. And perhaps a gift or two, but these also need to be well-thought out, appropriate, and meaningful.
How this could happen: Thought. Research. Just feeling what I need to feel, and trying to frame it. Perhaps some inspiration?
My commitment: To remember that I AM a writer, and I do sometimes have a way with words. To remember that heartfelt words are often worth more than any gift.
Okay, so. Last time. I wanted to investigate doing some modelling stuff, to celebrate the 'yay! I like the way I look' feeling that I've had for the past year or so. And there's been some progress on that. Been chatting to a few friends, so yay :D
The yoga-in-progress sign has not really come around, but I'm working on that. I'm sure I'll find something :)
In terms of more exam/study support and progress, I've surprised myself in receiving it from myself. I've not pushed myself to do more than I want, and that's leaving me satisfied and pleased with how things are going. Can't wait til that last exam is over! ^_^
