In all research projects, you collect data and then you tally and review your findings. So it’s time to tally up your research and see where you are at in this present time. You may find that your are in a better place than you started out believing. You may find that you are not in the place you want to be. Doesn’t matter What you find, only That you find!
This gives you a starting point and a clear understanding about where you are currently in relation to where you want to be. You could be right where you want to be and this is great news!
If, on the other hand, you find that you are in a place that is less than ideal, now you have a starting point to make some changes. And, believe it or not, making changes is not really all that hard! Maintaining them is where the real work comes in! Here’s one thing to remember, change 1 thing at a time and stay with that 1 thing until it becomes easier and easier. You will still have to pay attention, but you can then focus on the next thing you want to change.
Have you ever started a diet, exercise program or other project? You did great out of the gate, but by the time you got to the first turn, you were starting to lose steam and by the 2nd or 3rd turn, you had decided to drop out of the race. Well, you can change that with a little attention and a lot of intention! That’s the next direction we will be traveling in this journey of self-discovery and self-governance.
So stay tuned! More ideas, more experiments and more fun to come! What I have found as I have taken this journey is that the more I enjoy it the easier it gets. If I am in a good place, even challenging things are not so hard to handle. One of my goals is to be in balance the majority of the time. I try to avoid use of always and never because they tend to be highly inaccurate and set some unrealistic ideas in place. I know I will have bad days, but if I pay attention and make adjustments, those will become bad moments instead of days. If I continue to stay with this, those bad moments will get fewer and further in between. I have already been experiencing that, so I know it can happen for others also!
Let’s keep on this journey together and create better lives for ourselves and others! Namaste!
