Loving the Heat

Dear Diary and Friends,

Five days ago I decided to challenge myself like I used to when I regularly did 30 day challenges. I enjoyed a lot of positive changes in my life when I was doing that regularly. For example, I used to be a completly terrified of talking to strangers or be in social situations. I was scared to talk to people I didn’t know. I didn’t understand how to talk to people and I didn’t understand how to work with social norms. I seemed to always say the wrong thing and was awkward and twitchy. Then I challenged myself to introduce myself to 3 people a day for 30 days. The first week was hard but I did it. The 2nd week it got easier and I began to realize that we are all human and other people weren’t scary after all. The 3rd week I looked forward to meeting 3 new people everyday and by the 4th week I could effortlessly approach strangers and engage them in conversation.

I’ve been in kind of a funk lately. That all knowing sense of awareness inside of me (the Holy Spirit) encouraged me to start some new challenges for the fun of it. So I’m going on a daily walk for 30 days, rain or shine. The first 3 days of the walk were actually in the rain and I loved it. Then for some reason on yesterday’s sunny day I wanted to skip a day. Well a challenge is a challenge and what’s the point if I don’t actually do the challenge. So grudgingly I put Angel in the wagon and headed out on a walk.

I didn’t get started until later in the morning. It was hot and steamy after a few days of rain. I was grumbling about the heat to myself when I remembered how I usually love the heat. When did that change? I wasn’t sure but I did realize it was all in my head and could easily change back. So I decided to like the heat again. As soon as I made that decision the hot steamy air felt amazing. Ohhh…right! Now I remember how incredible the heat feels. Yummy!! Detoxifying and healing.

The rest of the walk was great fun. We found 2 pennies, which to me means the universe will always provide me and my family with all we need. We found a melon plant randomly growing on the side of the road. Abundance!

The birds and the cicada’s provided us with beautiful music. Day 4 of the 30 day challenge was a success!!

Thank you for walks.
