An Hour Well Spent

Time goes by, originally uploaded by Peters nik.

I wrote this post a couple of days ago:

I’ve just finished facilitating my first “Personal Development/ Self-Help” Book Club meeting and I feel so “right”, congruent, alive!

Having earlier debated on whether to postpone until next month, due to low attendance responses, I eventually decided to go, telling myself, “This is what you said you want to do, so go and do it, no matter if 1 or 10 people turn up, it’s a worthwhile venture”

So, off I went and facilitated a first book club meet, discussing “Feel the Fear And Do It Anyway”, by Susan Jeffers. Sharing opinions on the book and its impact on our lives, I found really invigorating.

After tonight, I definitely feel inspired, motivated to keep plugging away at it, advertising, spreading the word and encouraging people to come.

So, I’m glad that when deciding whether to continue with it or cancel it, I used Susan Jeffers “No Lose Model” and came up with the idea that do the Book Club this month was definitely something I did want to spend an hour going. And, my gosh, was I right! It was one of the best hours I’ve spent in ages!

List of Life

List of Future Plans 26/365, originally uploaded by Jearvi.

Sometimes you can go into a relationship wanting one thing, but getting something else.

I went into a new relationship wanting to be looked after – to have someone to “do it all for me” (yes, very naive I know!) and here, 6 months later, I feel inspired to further establish my own career.

In theory, I’d expect myself to feel disgruntled and short-changed in some way, but on the contrary. What I feel is a growing sense of accomplishment and achievement, that I’m building and creating something.

This person is a very creative individual and often we, as human beings, rub our qualities off on each other.

Interestingly enough, the thing that attracted me to him in the first place, was a tag signature line at the bottom of his initial correspondence, “… create a great day”

I had a list in my mind, at the time, of what I wanted in a partner. Creativity wasn’t there at all. Or so I thought! But unconsciously, that’s something I desired.

My whole level of creativity is something that’s expanded. I used to draw, write poetry years ago as an expression of this, as a way to channel my feelings. I stopped doing that a couple of years back.

Now, I write. I put pen to paper and just let it flow. And I find that I really enjoy it. I really enjoy creating!

So, I guess, as always, what I’m saying is that sometimes, (maybe even more than sometimes) we think we want one thing, yet really want another, or alternatively, we leave off the “list of life” the one quality, person or experience, that will make our life even more incredible.
