This is my post from Day 8 of the Boundless Living Challenge, created on the ning network by Bob Doyle. Put on your snow boots and ride along!
In the middle of Day 8 of this wonderful Boundless Living Challenge, I decided it was time get some household chores done. Having just read some inspiring posts this morning (including Bob Doyle’s entries and videos on laughing at himself), I was really in a good mood.
I don’t own a dishwasher anymore, so it’s just me and my two hands when it comes time for this chore. I have to admit that I don’t like doing the dishes. Do you? Since I’ve been using EFT more regularly this past week, it has gotten easier to “get around” to doing them regularly, and with a different attitude–a more positive one. So today, as I was washing the dishes, I suddenly burst into the song of “Jingle Bell Rock!” After a few lines, (as I didn’t really know all the words of the song), I realized what I was singing to myself, chuckled and kept singing some more. I even danced a bit as I scrubbed those glasses clean!
Now I know it isn’t winter here and we are five months away from the winter holiday time but I realized quickly that this site, the people, the vibrations within it and the creativity that is pouring out of it are truly a gift that is cause for celebration, song, dance and just plain fun—just like at Christmas time (for me). You can substitute whatever tradition or celebration that evokes the same feeling in you. “Jingle Bell Rock” came to my mind because it gives me a feeling of having fun, dancing, being playful, childlike, “mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet,”…. and we usually hear this song during a time of gift-giving, family reunions, together time with loved ones, holiday parties, and the like. So it is in that spirit of gift-giving time and singing that makes me feel really good. And that rocks with me!
I felt so good and motivated that I decided then that I would spend two straight concentrated hours on my goal, with no distractions whatsoever–An idea that was put out there by someone’s comments I read either last night or this morning. I honestly cannot remember who but it was a great idea and worked for me! Thank you!
When I went to bed last night, I had a thought come to me that I could use an existing article I had once did, modify it as necessary, and market it on Lulu.com to come up with my book actually done in the 45 days! I have to admit that I immediately thought, “Is that cheating?” but then I reminded myself that this isn’t the first time that I have had that INSPIRATION with that particular piece of work, so I must listen to it, as I haven’t yet taken INSPIRED ACTION. (I have been familiar with the site, but never did anything with it. Last night after I read LeTicia’s posts and her comments, I got the idea right before I fell asleep.) So now I’m listening, thanks to this site, the EFT, and all of you wonderful people! And I’m hearing Jingle Bell Rock!
So I will create and publish my book on Lulu.com. Yes, I will! “What a bright time, it’s the right time to rock the night away!” Perhaps my goal is changing a bit, since I won’t be writing as much new material, but not really. I prefer to use the term EVOLVING. And that rocks with me! Even if all I hear are jingle bells!
Until next time, you can find me in the horse drawn sleigh having fun! Want to ride along?
