Today is better than yesterday. My frustration levels hit warped speed when I decided to further challenge myself with yesterday’s contest assignment. I went back to Reader and carefully combed through blog listings, finding 5 that interested me enough to follow. I wrote a multi-paragraphed description of my transformed behavior and a summary of each blog. I was quite pleased with myself as I stepped away from my computer (where one might think they would be safe) to have dinner. When I returned, it had vanished (how is that possible?). I spent 30 frantic minutes searching to no avail. My Type A personality was in full swing and it wasn’t pretty.
Taking an hour and a half yoga class this morning brought me back to my gentler self – away from my competitive, stressed, no patience self. Whenever I think I’m evolving I am sent the perfect test to prove more work is needed. Yep. So, my list of blogs went the way of 2013…no longer with us. I will (at some point) locate these blogs and post them (because it appears I didn’t properly sign up for them either). For creative right brainers, computers can be daunting. But when I quieted my fear, resistance and expectations to yesterday’s assignment, I did better.
Today’s assignment is also computer related. We are being asked to look at different themes for our blogs. I will not post about that now as I have to deal with the fear, resistance and expectation that popped up yesterday and clearly sees no good reason not to do so today. I’ll let you know how it goes.
