Pecking Away

The Logical Heart Knows Best

One more day of work at my job tomorrow, then 4 days to work on my path with a heart. Since shifting to a lower stress job, I now have more energy to devote to creating what feels more purposeful, meaningful and helpful.

Though still, on the days I work at my job I am so tired afterwards and don’t get much done on my heart path at least not creatively. I am able to read, learn, meditate, watch Twin Peaks, lol, but that’s more passive intake which doesn’t require a lot of brain power.

Surprisingly I’ve been able to blog everyday, albeit it’s not voluminous or earth shattering content, heh 🙂 Hell, there just might be a haiku, poem, or another excerpt from Carokashu down the line when I get desperate and cheat a bit 😀 I’ll be adding more video content too.

Not quite settled into a groove just yet. Next I’ll be adding more exercise to my routine on the days I don’t work at my job. I get plenty of exercise on the days I work. That should help boost my energy levels and productivity.

This month I want to launch some digital content that will actually have components which share practices to help with maintaining emotional equilibrium, mental focus/clarity and practical tips to help make more loving choices and develop healthier habits. I also want to delve into how to handle challenging people and difficult situations with more ease and grace. I’ll share methods on how to take it less personally, be less reactive, to “not take the bait” so the friction is diminished.

Does this sound like something people, y’all perhaps would be interested in? My goal is to figure out how best I can help others, to find convergence where what I have to uniquely offer is what others want, value and helps them the most.

I want to address the issues that block people directly at their source. The most effective method is to work with the mind, to go within and transform, heal and grow using the most powerful ways to change habits of thought, process emotions, reintegrate, forgive… then the loving actions follow automatically with less resistance.

But it all starts from within and shifting away from the victim mentality, away from blame, shame and guilt…the fear, towards…forgiveness, surrender, acceptance, release and then more connection, oneness, spirit and LOVE.

I’m declaring this plan so I will be more accountable and actually make faster progress by choosing to add this extra layer of social pressure 🙂

I welcome any comments or suggestions!

I’m also going to research into how to engage more on social media so I can receive more input there. I have a Facebook group, but haven’t done much with it. I want to try a Facebook live. My Instagram account is sitting there 🙂 Over the next few months I’ll see about increasing my engagement all across the board. Maybe then the energy will flow towards more cohesion and convergence on my path with a heart.

I’ve been working on this now for years, bit by bit, or as Anne Lamott says, “bird by bird.” Maybe this year will be when everything comes to fruition. I’m feeling like I finally have a clear path to run with it!

What projects do you have sitting on the back burner that you just love and can’t help but keep pecking away at them? How can you create space to be able to work even more at what you love? 😀 ?

I’ve created more and more space over the years, it hasn’t been easy, but I’m finally just about there! I feel like I’m on the precipice and it’s so exciting! 😀 Yay!
