But these days, having taken a bit of a detour on the expected life plan ( nd that's another story altogether!) I am pretty much constantly looking at doing stuff that makes me feel a little bit uneasy. Way, way out of my comfort zone.
And let's face it, a lot of the everyday is still pretty challenging, and not necessarily easy to navigate. The everyday easily sucks up time and energy.
So I take a deep breathe and push on, and begin seeking inspiration. I look at the inspirational little words I have pinned and displayed or written out, maybe even painted.
I read a book that makes me smile and feel brave.
I walk in my garden.
I go for a walk.
I think of the things that I have achieved, and how good it felt to do them. Maybe chat to people who keep me moving forward and are positive and bouncy type of people. Maybe I sit in the sun, close my eyes and focus. Maybe I feel the fear and potential consequences of being stagnant, sludgy and stuck.
This usually nudges me forward.
