How a Writing Challenge Can Help You to Keep on Track with Life

About 28 days ago I signed up for a 30 day writing challenge that I thought would help to take me with my writing to another level. A level of much more freedom and expression.

I made a video on the second or third day about how I wanted to move towards much more transparency generally, not just in my writing.

I have been keeping these pieces in my files here at home as they were intended to be an inspiration for myself to move forward in what I am doing.

I talked about my desire to bring my thoughts, words and actions much more into alignment to enhance my sense of authenticity. And since I first wrote this down, I’ve found that I’ve been doing this more and more.

Thoughts that flash through my head are finding vocal expression and some of them are manifesting in the form of actions that I undertake.

There’s something very empowering and liberating about this. It sets free energy that has been lurking in the shadows, in the background so to speak. It allows light and fresh air to come in where the windows were previously closed.

And as a result there is more movement. Nature abhors a vaccuum and so without my even having to do anything, new manifestations occur in the vacated space.

I’m noticing that this is having a huge effect on my energy levels. As I cultivate the new seeds I am planting, roots are put down into the fertile soil and new delicate growth begins.

It takes on a life force all of its own.

And right now I have a deepened sense of – If not now, WHEN?

This brings me right back to the present moment. Anything I have ever thought of doing and bringing into being only has any meaning through the focus and attention I give to it in the now.

So right now I am off to bring into being all those aspects of myself that I have previously ignored, dishonoured, left unacknowledged.

It would be a huge disservice to myself if I didn’t.

And what if tomorrow never comes…

  1. Don’t put off ’til tomorrow what you can do today, right? I adore the mindful approach you bring to all aspects of your life, Fiona — powerful and inspiring.

    I’ve been an everyday writer since I can remember — it’s just part of me. without the daily purge of ideas, reflections, emotions (good & not so good) I might explode 🙂

    It’s such a joy watching you manifest so much into your life!

      Thanks so much for your support and love Heidi. It’s great to remember too that as we see this happening in each other, we can know for certain that we are manifesting it in some form too. The daily writing purge is fabulous. I have journals and literally piles of paper everywhere. Writing is fabulous, isn’t it? Love helping to inspire others. xx

    I soooo relate to this post Fiona. I find that the more I write, the more authentic I become. I started out being somewhat guarded, afraid to reveal too much about myself. But as I have learned more about my readers, I have become increasingly able to include my own experiences. It has been great therapy!

  3. This kind of daily writing is near and dear to my heart, Fiona. I confess that there was a period in my life when I was more consistent and devoted to my daily personal/free writing. I now wonder how I could have let other things (even other writing) interfere? I am going to do the next challenge myself, and I know it will bring me closer to my goals, and what I know to be true. Whatever obstacles or barriers I have allowed to settle into place will be knocked around, I know!

    Looking forward to what emerges for you as you refuse to delay!

      Thanks Judy. I like the image of your obstacles being knocked around. Time to shift everything that’s standing in our way. See you on the challenge.
