Day 14: roots and anchors
The idea of rooting down into your own personal beliefs and center of truth is an ongoing process, and many things can serve as anchors or roots as you move through life.
What rooted or anchored you in 2014?
And where do you want to put down roots in 2015?
As always – my family. That’s always first and foremost. It sounds cliche but it is true.
And then I have to add nature. Being outside amongst the trees – hugging trees and feeling their energy – breathing in the scent of the cedars – that grounds me immensely and rejuvenates my spirit.
One thing that truly anchored me this year – because I lean towards a scattered mind brimming with too many thoughts that all decide to fight for dominance at one time – is my mantra: “one thing at a time”. I tell myself this when life gets hectic and too many things start popping up at one time. I tell myself, “one thing at a time” and center myself so that my focus clears up and it works. It has been helping a lot.
In 2015, I want to be more centered. I want to create more and truly anchor myself to finishing something. I flit about too much with my productivity. I want to sit down and finish my book. I just have to figure out which one I want to finish first as I have several on the burner. See what I’m talking about? My inability to finish has been plagued by self-doubt and second-guesses. I need to get over that and just push forward and not expect perfection right out of the gate. So my roots need to “still” me. That is what I am aiming for.
