The 100 Day Reality Challenge

 

 

Well, I have had quite a couple of weeks since my last update. Filled with changes, big and small, and (hopefully) lots of growth.

 

My college class started again two weeks ago, and it is absolutely amazing. Better than expected. I have a feeling that completing this course is going to be a life-changing experience. I am so glad that I've finally found something that I truly love (well, I've loved this topic for a long time, I just didn't think that it would be possible for me to study it) So I am truly, fully appreciating this experience 100%. And if it eventually leads to a new career for me, then that would be even better.

 

Another change that has happened is that I have started going jogging every other day. It is so funny how it happened too:

For the past 9 months I have wanted to get up at 6am and go jogging. In fact, for every single day of those months I'd have my phone go off at 5.50am to wake me up and (hopefully) inspire me to bounce out of bed and go for a run. How many times did I actually get out of bed and do this? About... zero.

I think the only times I left my bed were those to firmly hush my repeating snooze alarm (usually though I'd just ignore it until it gave up and died of it's own accord).

But the whole time I did still hold the intention to go running.

 

Then one day, about three weeks ago, I finally asked myself 'Why does it necessarily have to be the morning when I go?' (obviously my mind is not the quickest gun in the west - it took me nine whole months to ask this question - ha ha ha) So it finally dawned on me that actually taking 30-45 minutes in the evening to go go for a jog would work out okay.

And it has made such a difference! It is a time that is perfect for me in every way. And I love running (well, it's technically more jogging how I do it) I always have, ever since I was a kid and my dad would take me with him to jog on the beach every morning. I just feel so free, and it's the closest feeling I can get to flying without needing any extra apparatus to achieve it.

So it has been about three weeks now, and I'd really like for this to continue longer too.

 

I hope that everyone who reads this is also well, and I'm wondering what give you a sense of freedom or a feeling like you're flying?

 

Lots of Love and hugs,

Sanya xxx

Thanks for your comments guys!

Sandra: I am definitely not a morning person either!!

Niki & Sunshine: that's really great input. I totally agree with all the things you wrote! And being in nature seems to be a common thread.. It must really affect us powerfully. I know that's one reason I love running. Even if I don't get a chance to run in nature. Just being outside, under the stars and sky really makes a difference. <3

Hi Sanya, that is so great that you found a way to comfortably integrate the jogging you have been wanting to do. At least now you don't have to deal with your alarm going off so early in the morning! Being outside surrounded by nature is definitely something that gives me a sense of freedom. I love how inspiring it can be to just look around and see all the natural beauty that surrounds us.

I wish you a fantastic weekend!

Ha!  I know thooose questions.  "Why didn't I ask that sooner?"  ... If I may suggestion, believe in yourself and that you have MADE the life-shifting changes.  I see myself in your comments, the underlying feelings of doubt. Along that note: Congratulations and taking those jogs!  Good for you - in more than one way.

My flying?  Good questions.... I have many things.  Out in nature, or wilderness.  Meditation every morning.  Prayer and healing for others. Following my heart. Being in-love, loving myself and life.  And life means every creation.  That covers everything, huh.  :-)

I did the same with my clock and still do it... ah well..... I'm not a morning person.... LOL :) I've never been ... and that's the toughest part... to wake up early (O_o) :) Jogging hmm.. I can't wait to start cycling again and don't get frozen when I do it. :)
