Surrender - project me day 281

10 October 2010

I woke up this morning feeling as though I had taken 2 steps back and have to admit that I have had one of the roughtest days in a very long time.

This blog has become so personal because as long as I know I can do this every day then I know I still have fight in me. Right at this moment I don't feel as though I can take one more moment and that is the perfect time to blog and remind myself that 'project me' is about being purposeful and not goal driven. If I was focused on the goals then I would be mortified right now because I can't exercise, write, teach ... Anything! But I still have purpose!

So I decided to surrender ... I am tired, sore and scared and today I have given myself permission not to fight any of it. It made it easier when I remembered that I won't fail but I can fold and start playing with a new hand tomorrow.

  1. You're a dynamo, my friend! Even with everything you're going through, you continue to keep at it. Baby steps are fine. Because each one counts and makes a difference.

    Take good care.

    1. Thank you for the inspiration, my blogging friend. I try whenever I can to catch up on the life of my special Ms Girl.

  2. There's a massive difference between giving up and accepting defeat. Sometimes we just can't win, there's no shame in that. Back to the drawing board and try again. Giving up would be to lose purpose. 😀 Not gonna happen on my watch!

    Cue oscar clip: "They may take our lives..." 😉

    Besides, "They can stand me up at the gates of hell but I won't back down..."

    Deep breath, for this too shall pass.
