10 Years on WordPress…

Wow…I just received a notification that it is my 10 year anniversary with wordpress!

I only began publicly posting in 2013…so there was a lot of time spent too afraid to post publicly!    Fear holds so many of us back.

I am now in another phase in life where letting go of fear is needed…  It is true what they say…no matter what step you are on there will be fear when you are called again to move forward.

This year my intention is to follow my curiosity…follow my excitement…follow the call…

Moving towards authenticity and empowerment…fearlessly…

It’s Time

Oh, its time…
Why wait?
Time won’t wait for you.
Yeah, that seems so unfair…
What if I’m not ready?

Oh, its time
to take a step.
One step.
Clock ticking.

Your vision will be revealed
whether you step out
OR
stand still.

It will reveal the results…
A vision of fear…or your success.

Oh, its time…
Why are you still waiting???

Morning Pages – Day 7

Day 7!

7 days of morning pages… It was perfect timing for me to do them. I have a renewed awareness, clarity and connection to my dharma.

I think the detours taken in life around our passion and purpose are important, because when we come back face to face with our dharma it is like recognizing an old friend.

What also stood out was the importance of taking a look at obstacles to my creative voice. When I write the obstacles down it is clear they are all coming from fear at the root of them.

I think we all have creativity and somewhere along the line if we don’t claim it and use it we start to close off in some way either on our own…or because of something someone else said or did. Maybe we didn’t want parts of ourselves to be seen and possibly judged.

Walls to our creativity are formed….

I think journaling and specifically Morning Pages is a great way to tear down the walls.

At least recognize the walls are there.

If there is a wall…there is always something on the other side….

Morning Pages – Day 3

Day 3 of 7

I don’t usually post this frequently , but I am in this 7 day challenge of Morning Pages… So bear with me. So now I have realized its 2 challenges – Morning pages and then the blog post 🙂 I committed …so here it is.

Today’s writing brought up some body image issues and also a lot about authenticity. I think that authenticity is a little bit of a buzzword – everybody talks about it like if we aren’t exposing ALL of ourselves to the world we are not authentic.

Is that true? I decided a while ago that isn’t true. For me… I need to feel pretty safe to share my deepest truths. If someone else wants to share their deepest story with the world that is their “way”. It doesn’t have to be mine. Everyone finds their own way… I think the time has to be right… Maybe, that is just fear talking? 🙂

A lot is coming up again on seeking clarity. It ended with the idea of letting go of the need to know… Looking instead to what has already manifested & what is evolving.

The question is can I see a pattern? Are the answers right in front of my face and I don’t see them? Probably 🙂

I have to say these 3 days of Morning Pages – unleashing what is rambling in my head has definitely had a calming affect on me.

Morning Pages – Day 1

I made a new commitment to do “Morning Pages” for the next 7 days. Maybe it will go longer, but for now… I will start with a week.

Today the themes that came up are around fear, wanting clarity, next steps, self doubt, and also I noticed alot of coaching myself. I think that is a good sign – its me trying to steer myself out of negative thinking.

The other thing that came out of todays Morning Pages which was the need to Trust that things are happening at the right time.

What are Morning Pages?

“Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning.
*There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages*–
they are not high art. They are not even “writing.” They are about
anything and everything that crosses your mind– and they are for your eyes
only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and
synchronize the day at hand. Do not over-think Morning Pages: just put
three pages of anything on the page…and then do three more pages tomorrow.”
– Julia Cameron

You can find out more on this process by going to Julia Cameron’s website and her book the “Artists Way”

I have done Morning Pages before, but not consistently… Never for 7 days straight. This is different from journaling, but I am also doing it to help get myself back journaling consistently since I have slacked off on that!

This is a perfect time for me to do them with some transitions I am going through. Right now…I should be packing for moving in a few weeks, but here I am writing this post… 🙂

It will all be done at the right time. Trust 🙂

Namaste – Kerry 🙂

Losing the Fear of Blogging

I got a notice from WordPress saying “Happy Anniversary” “You registered with WordPress 7 Years ago!”.   What?  7 YEARS AGO??   Years.  I had a few blogs here over that time …published then deleted them…until finally this past year I decided to just stop deleting my words.   I wish I could get back some of my writing from those other blogs now.   Yes, I still have the thoughts that come sometimes when getting ready to hit publish, but I have learned to shift my focus off of the fear and think about who may want to read this and not about who doesn’t.    My intention is for this to be a motivational space and a resource about Yoga….its not all going to be good – its not all going to resonate with everyone.     Sometimes I will want to delete it…or keep something safe in draft mode for months 🙂

So how can you just hit publish and start losing the fear?

Ask yourself:

What do I get creatively out of building this blog up and what do I hope people will get out of reading it??      What do I appreciate from other peoples blogs and what would I miss if they weren’t there?   What do I want to say?   Why am I censoring myself if I am called to write?   What do I bring in my own unique way?

Think about how many blogs or videos and articles you read and don’t comment on OR like…yet you do get inspiration from them.  Just because no one comments or hits ” like”  doesn’t mean you aren’t making a difference to someone.   🙂   So…Write for you and write for the people who are reading your stuff.

Instead of thinking about the worst that could happen – we can start to ask ourselves –  what is the best that could happen?

Namaste – Kerry 🙂

Side note…I plan to upgrade to premium soon and lose these ads!   🙂
