Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
- Mary Anne Radmacher
Time to check in with your progress on the 2009 New Year 30 Day Challenge and get a look at the Challenge Prize. Last week, 17 courageous souls committed to join me in this challenge, without knowing the PRIZE.
So, the way I see it, either they are very brave for venturing into this challenge, or very dedicated to their goals.
Which means, the PRIZE has got to be good.
Originally, I was going to make a special sock monkey fairy, since sock monkeys are supposed to have magical powers to help ease writer's block. But, this month is all about me and my organizational goals. And my writing.
The search continued.
I wanted something that would inspire happy thoughts and sparkling fairy spells for those moments when one needs some encouragement.
And, I found it. But, it hasn't arrived yet. And I'd hate to promise something without having it in hand. My apologies, my pretties, but you will need to wait a little longer before the prize is unveiled.
I know you will be strong.
I'd like to congratulate every one of you for taking stock of your dreams, and taking action to make things happen.
Go forth and do what you love. Look fear in the eye, take yourself seriously, honor yourself, and stay persistent.
And most of all, have courage.
Courage, my friends, is what will help you get up and work it when the days are tough. It's what is going to help you get to the next day. You can do it. I know you can.
Last week, I did great with my organizational goals. Mostly because I wouldn't give myself permission to write until I did at least an hour of decluttering. The best part was cleaning out my printer area and finding a missing gift card! This week I tackle my office files and the office supply closet.
So, how did you do last week?
Then, get back to work!
