Partnership (wk 15)

help-button-22458999

Sometimes when I read the prompts for the upcoming week, I want to pat myself on the back for being ahead of the curve. This week’s work is all about partnership and asking for help when it’s needed.

Since starting this make-over, I have asked for help every step of the way…and received it.

I have accountability partners, online and in real life.
I have projects being done that co-workers and friends have helped me with because I have asked.
I put myself out there because no matter how introverted I am, there are so many things I cannot do alone.

The author says that working with someone eases the burden and increases strengths. I completely agree, which is why I do this already and it makes this week’s homework easy-peasy because I have already implemented it.

Now, the work for this week is to pick a project I would like support with.
Since my life seems to be one project after another and each week I am doing something different, or many somethings different, that tend to meld together from the start of one to the completion of the next, I will not be participating in this exercise.
I have so many irons in the fire and I have such a great support system, I chalk this up to a lesson already heeded and learned.

Updates:

I am learning more about different meditation practices and going deeper into this. If I am going to continue doing this, I may as well get the most I can out of it.

I paint 2-3 times a week.

I write every day, several times a day, and find I still have so many story-lines running through my head that it will be quite a while before I get them all out of me and onto paper.

We are heading into a busy time of year, so I try to take advantage of the stolen moments of rest I can get and the downtime I need to re-energize.

Fifteen weeks in and still going strong and I couldn’t have gotten this far without my support group. Thank you very much.
