march: COURAGE

Holy moly, how did it get to be the first of March already?! March means that spring is literally just around the corner… amazing! 🙂

February absolutely flew by for me. With a focused effort, I ploughed the remainder of my yoga program – I am now a certified teacher! – and a massive amount of wedding to-dos are now to-dones.

Here are a few tips that really helped me through the process:
  1. If it takes less than one minute… actually, make that five minutes… just do it now. It’s amazing how much time is freed up when you battle procrastination.
  2. You know that thing you really don’t want to do, that thing you’ve been putting off for ever and ever and always? Do it first – right after you wake up, right after you get to get to work, etc – and save yourself the mental agony. I betcha it won’t be so bad after all.
  3. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, cut it all down to what’s truly important. I suspect, if you’re anything like me, there is a lot of filler that can fall away and you won’t even notice…

There is something else I realized today…

All of my monthly challenges have made the winter fly by! Not once (seriously, not once!) have I felt the winter blues or even noticed the grey skies. This, ladies and gentlemen, is huge!

So, what more motivation do I need?! Onwards and upwards! 🙂

I’m going to keep March’s theme very, very simple. There are a lot of amazing changes happening in my life – I am changing – and I want to step up the plate to embrace them all. So, March is dedicated to saurya, or courage. You know, that whole “do one thing a day that scares you“… oh, and log it… in writing!

I end today with this quote, which I found on my newsfeed on the book of faces…

‎”Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.

Here we go, neck!

P.S. Have I mentioned that I once had a pet turtle? He was pretty cool.
