Day of Inspiration and Action

It's that time of year.  It's cold.  It's dark.  The holidays are over, and our to do lists are LOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGG.  This makes it difficult to do two things:

1.  Feel inspired
2.  Take action.

"Just let me stay in bed and procrastinate a little longer,"  might be our first thought.  

And from this place it is so easy to spiral down into guilt and shame--which is just an ugly pit that can be difficult to escape.

So today I am inviting you and me to take action--maybe even mini, micro actions.  Let's take little steps together to get our inspiration back and our action on track.

Let's start with inspiration:
  • Take a walk--even a quick one and look at trees.  Here in Ohio there is a light blanket of snow that makes the trees look gorgeous.  Breathe in the beauty of trees.
  • Scroll down through this site or another site for inspiration.  Set the timer for just 15 minutes.  This is inspiration, not a time sucker.
  • Choose to eat one meal that really nourishes you.  It tastes good and it's good for you.  Let this inspiration fuel you.
  • Be an observer of inspiration--just seek it out today.
  • ​Grab yourself a Brave Inspiration card deck
  • Do a fun activity for just a few minutes or a few hours--you decide.

An now for action:
{When you have lots to do the getting started part can be the biggest obstacle, so let's get started!}
  • Make a list of the 3 most important things for you to accomplish today.  {I did NOT say 3 pages, just 3 things!}
  • Take the first step in doing the first thing on your list.
  • Solicit support for completing your list.
  • Stay focused, even when there are interruptions or roadblocks--3 Most Important Tasks

    P.S.  Tomorrow I'm going to ask you for some support.  I hope you will be able to help me take action!
