Do you know how many days I sit down at my computer to write The Miracle Journal and have no idea what to write about? More than I’d like you to know. But the very act of showing up and being WILLING is part of the miracle that I’ve experienced over the last nine months.
I share this today because of some of the Miracle Challenge postings that are being posted:
“When I sat down to think about what my miracle today was, nothing seemed to stand out. Then I realized the fact that I was still participating in this challenge, as well as working on my self-worth exercises daily is a miracle. Normally, I can only maintain a commitment to healing and self-love for a handful of days before something happens which makes for a good excuse to put it all off for a day. Then it so difficult to muster up the drive to pick it back up again the next day and the next, until all the progress was lost in a blah mess. So good bye excuses and here’s to making it on to day 7 tomorrow!”
And that’s exactly the point – sometimes the biggest miracle is just showing up.
One of the games I have played with myself in the past is this: I make a daily commitment. I miss a day. The next day I tell myself I have to do the commitment twice. I don’t have enough energy. I miss a second day. The next day I tell myself I have to do the commitment three times. I’m too tired. I miss a third day. And then I never do it again.
Here’s the new path: missed a day? No problem. Start again fresh tomorrow.
