“Every day I feel is a blessing from God.
And I consider it a new beginning.
Yeah, everything is beautiful.”
The coaching call was awesome. One thing Joan strongly suggested to me was that I narrow my focus on things I am doing. And if I want to promote my puzzle books and t-shirts (I do have a zillion to get rid of) that I focus on that. She definitely thought I should blog but not have two blogs.
So my intent today was to stop this blog and to start up one for my Adventure Words website. But that didn’t feel right inside. Because this little blog as little and inconsequential as it is – is what I really love to do.
And I thought about it and I prayed about it and I decided ten years from now I really don’t care if I sell all those stupid t-shirts or not – BUT I would like to feel that I helped a few kindred spirits find a bit of joy and fun in each day.
Part of this came about because I thought if I was really going to be serious about building a blogging audience I needed to stop being so “reflective” and moody and sharing just how the day is going with me. I mean who cares right? I need to be journalistic. Stand and deliver. Something worth reading. Helping.
And so I decided to take Darren Rowse’s 31 days to build a better blog course. And I signed up for it. (Starts tomorrow). And then . . .
When I was reviewing his first free course – the first exercise was to find a topic that you were passionate about. And you know what? As much as I love Vancouver and doing the puzzle books and t shirts and selling stuff – it’s not what I’m PASSIONATE about.
Because what has really been the whole focus of my life – seemingly forever – is developing a relationship with the spiritual side of life. With God and prayer and loving and helping people.
And just because I left the Monastery is no reason I have to drop that side of who I am. And so I have decided that I am going to make this the blog that I will work on for the next 31 days. It may mean that I will get a bit more focused with things here. Not sure what it will look like at the end of the 31 day challenge . . . but I am going to give it a swing.
Today’s Three Sunshine (Gratitude) Moments:
1. Great coaching call.
2. Deciding to make “inspiration and motivation” the theme of this blog.
3. Having a very nice “coke and rum” while I write this. Never had one before. Nice. Hopefully no one will freak out because I am having a drink – but hey – once in a while it is very nice.
