Day 247: back to school trapper keepers

4 Sep

Can you smell that?
There is a breeze in the air that smells distinctly of school supplies. Wafts of pink erasers, lined paper notebooks and plastic Trapper Keepers are floating by my nostalgic nose.

Sad thing is: I can barely finish the books I already have on my shelf — and in my iPad!

Even so, in this Back-To-School-Fall-Frenzy I am motivated to take myself back.
To school.

I am committing to finishing all the books that I set out to read this year.

GULP.

Just writing that down gives me a lump in my throat. But I know there is so much more I can learn in this Lovemore+Fearless year of mine. Sure, I have already swam with sharks, reclaimed Paris from my past and rode the whitewater of the Grand Canyon. But, I know there is more for my mind and heart that is just waiting for me.

Which means I have less than four months to put my nose in a handful of books. If you have a good book suggestion on LOVE or FEAR please send it my way!

I’ll put it in my Trapper Keeper.

What are you going to do with the rest of your year?

Day 100: lovemore monday :: commitment

9 Apr

As you know, I entered this year determined to be fearless. But, I don’t want more fear or less in my life.  I want more love.  So I made up a new word, lovemore!   That’s why Lovemore Mondays are here.

Today’s Lovemore Monday is a love story about committment.

As in, 100 Days.

We are officially 100 days into the year.
Did it go fast for you?

Tonight as I look over my goals for the year that I made around New Year’s Eve I am amazed at what has happened and what has not …yet.

What I expected to discover was my depth of fear.
What I found was that I can jump into the water with sharks — as long as I have a strategy of how to get out of the water with sharks!

More than anything, I have discovered that I am really not afraid of much, but I do worry too much.

Starting out this year, I expected to find shopping elation after taking a 365-day break.

What I discovered is that I forgot just how to shop and it’s been overwhelming in many ways. (Good thing I have had the help of Holly Getty!)

And, I have to admit, I expected to find new ways to enjoy and love my body through exercise like running and hot yoga.

Instead, I have discovered something that seems so obvious now — my life-long issue with my blood, from childhood anemia to teenage cancer to adult poor circulation, all of which I am now addressing with acupuncture.

Surprisingly, this means I need to take a break from the intense exercise I love (like hot yoga) and treat myself with a little less strenuous exercise (like tai chi).

So far, I must report I have not fully found the meaning of life and love
…but I am getting closer, really close!

And, there are still 266 days left in this year called 2012.
There is still time.
There is still hope.

And, I will admit, with each chapter I read in my Abraham-Hicks books I feel closer to something that makes the most sense to my heart — and that is, the key to life is really as simple as JOY and FUN.

Joy and fun!
What could be better than that?

So, with the idea of JOY and FUN in my heart, I am unveiling my new commitment.
Lovemore Fearless T-shirts.

What could be a better reminder than wearing a mantra of LOVE?
Here’s the good news …you can have one too!

More on that soon…

Until then, here’s to the next 100 Days.
I’ll be right here with you.
