We all have excuses for why we don’t do something.

  1. If I had a little less stress in my life, I would start dieting.
  2. If my art room was clean and organized, I would have the space I need to do my art.
  3. If the weather were cooler, I would walk.
  4. If I weren’t so busy, I would volunteer more.
  5. If I had more time to create a vegan meal plan, I would stop eating cheese, eggs, and fish.
  6. If I had an entire day to write, I would start writing my book.

Day 21 - Lose the word ifWhile we all know that we can conjure up excuses to keeping us from what we believe is right thing for us to do, but the question is what solutions can we discover so that we can lose the word “if”?

All of the excuses above are “real”; I have made every one of those excuses at one time or another.  I  am slowly reframing the above statements and creating new opportunities by losing the word ‘if’.

  1. Life is really full right now, but I am worth taking care of. In fact, since June I have been eating so much better and lost +25 lbs. or so.
  2. My art room (or creative cave) as I call it needs constant attention to keep up with the organizing, but I can always find a corner to work in. I am so loving the time I am taking to create #The100DayProject/#ActivistCardsByChava.
  3. While the weather is still wicked hot, I have come to appreciate my early morning walks before it gets to hot. I am so excited that I am walking five miles a day at least five times a week.
  4. There is so much in the world that needs my attention, so while I am doing less than I want, I am taking time to do what I can. Today, I took time to visit with two different people that were facing health challenges, reached out to people that will hopefully be joining me for Project Lifeline, and I made a small donation to Beto O’Rourke’s campaign to defeat Ted Cruz for the Senate seat.
  5. With a hope to be completely vegan by October, I have mostly given up cheese and fish. I am also taking the time to occasionally make new vegan recipes whenever possible.  And in truth, I need to grow a stronger conviction and just stop eating the foods that are not vegan.
  6. Taking time to journal every day is a non-negotiable; writing is what nurtures my spirit. As I write, I am slowly coming to a better understanding of what I need to do so that my book can get written.

I am not alone when I say my world has too many moving parts. In this moment, I am treasuring the small moments to transcend my crazy busy schedule.

How are you going to get out of your own way and lose the ‘if’?

Onward with love, light, creativity, & action,
Chava
