There is definitely something to be said for taking decisive action. For me it was buying that plane ticket. I knew that cemented things for me. And that’s so important to me now, as the honeymoon period of a brand-new, beautiful idea is petering out. Do I still want to walk el Camino? Absolutely. Do I still plan to? Definitely. But without that plane ticket, I may have been tempted to hedge a bit this week.
It was one of those weeks for me. More easily agitated. A little less motivated. Thank goodness I still walked, though. I felt much better once I’d started. I was a bit sore Monday evening and then Tuesday day after that 3-hour walk on Monday. It’s good to know the muscles are changing. Wednesday and today I took one-hour walks with a half-packed backpack, and this weekend I intend to walk another 3-hour walk with an even fuller backpack. (Tomorrow I swim.)
I’m changing. Some of it feels good, and some of it doesn’t. My self-confidence has definitely improved (although this week it dipped back down a bit). I feel like I’m also becoming more assertive and less flexible. I’m not sure how I feel about that. But it has meant that my resentment levels have dropped, and that definitely feels better. I’m more focused, more directed . . . and more stubborn. 🙂 It’s all a learning process, right?
So much I could say, but this is good for today.
Much love, many blessings. ❤
