"This week your challenge is to
create something, anything, that celebrates your chosen word for 2007. Maybe a layout. Maybe a blog posting or a journal entry or a simple post-it note that
you put somewhere you can see it each day. Make sure to journal about why you
chose your word and what it means for you - the more you let yourself explore the more benefit you will receive in the end."
The word I have chosen for myself this year is PATIENCE
In the last couple of years I have grown to be more and more impatient. I want instant succes, instant happines, instant answers etcetera.
I am now facing the consequences of my attitude; I am constantly fighting with familymembers, I am not happy with my job, the fact that I am still not pregnant after having unsafe sex ( :)!)for nearly 19 months is putting me down more and more each day and I know that especially with this part of my life I might have to face some big challenges this coming year. My patience will be put to the test big time this year!
For Ali's Challenge I made the following LO:
The journaling is a quote from the "I Ching; The Book of Changes"
"When clouds form in the skies we know that rain will follow but we must not wait for it. Nothing will be achieved by attempting to interfere with the future before the time is ripe. Patience is needed"
