So, as I've mentioned several times I'm a huge fan of Joyce Meyer. Joyce wrote a book called "100 Ways To Simply Your Life" and as my quest for bliss has progressed this book has been a blessing. Yesterday morning it hit me like a bolt of thunder! To re-build structure within my writing and to bring a greater sense of peace to my life I'm going to perform a 21 day journey using Joyces' book.
I'm going to simplify things by:
1. Allowing myself to write from my heart and for myself - I was losing that
2. I will not think of topics beforehand - this seems like work and no longer fun
3. I'll be eliminating a few things in my home/life that I feel may not be beneficial to living a simplistic life.
Day 1: Simplifying Time
I have been becoming overwhelmed with the blogs I follow. I LOVE every blog I read and sometimes I don't get to comment them all. This has been causing me great stress, because my fear was if I didn't comment to every single blog I'd possibly lose my readers. (Crazy right?)
I'd also forgotten my main reason for starting this blog. It was never to count followers nor was it to collect a gazillion comments (I LOVE comments, but that is not my main objective). It was simply to uplift those who read it and to record my growth on my spiritual journey. So, I'm going to simplify things a bit so that I can feel at ease again.
1. I'm going to remove my followers gadget.
2. I'm going to hide the list of blogs I follow.
3. After my 21 day experiment I will no longer blog 2 days out of the week (I choose Fri & Sat)
For me this makes great sense and already I feel a great relief. I didn't start this blog to be famous, make a living from it nor do I wish to create stress within myself. I want people to read this blog and feel peace flowing from it. I want YOU to read this blog and feel my compassion. That is all I ever wanted. For me this will bring ease and comfort back to blogging. I will be reading and commenting, but now it won't feel like it's out of obligation.
I lovingly invite anyone who wishes to join me on this 21 day journey. What can you do to simply your life in 21 days? Do you believe simplifying can bring peace and even help with your God given talent(s)? Are you willing to find out?
I LOVE YOU ALL and I pray that You and ANY New Readers will continue to find Bliss along with me!!!!
