Today, my goal is to break a rule.
I’ve made the decision, am committed to it, and am currently creating the optimal environment to make it happen (hot tea, comfy socks, and a scheduled time block). This drive is alive and twitching in every muscle in my body (even the sore ones), and I plan to let it off leash to run wild. And, I am going to start small, not because I myself am not big, but because it is always the small things that launch momentum and lead to epic, life changing outcomes.
11:45am: The rule I am going to break has to do with writing, blogging in particular. Not particularly flashy or sexy, but this single act of personal rebellion is big in terms of the new message it’s going to send my body and mind. The blogging rule that follows me is one of my own creation, as many of them are, that has nipped at my heels like a rabid Chihuahua (sorry for the reference Zeke and Zebley, but you know what I mean here, right? Woof!).
Here and now is the perfect time to do break this rule because I am, right at this moment, blogging. It is quite simple: Toss the goal of writing a profound, lengthy, and beautifully worded blog out with the trash. Instead, write fast, write messy, and write honest.
Attempting to sit down to adhere to the rule of writing the perfect block often results in:
1) my writing no blog whatsoever, and as a result,
2) me feeling like shit about myself.
Sitting down to break the rule that will make me bigger by writing a messy, short, honest and gloriously imperfect blog is to:
1) open my arms wide to freedom and fun, safety within myself and closer connection to others.
2) set the groundwork for breaking other rules, societal and self imposed, that will give me the courage to get even bigger. What about that trip to Mongolia I have been meaning to take or my dream of buying a couple of horses and adding barrel racer to my bucket list, etc…
Go out and break a rule today, no matter how small. Get bigger and do not apologize.
Start. Right. Now.
