Every journey has delays. A connecting flight doesn’t arrive on time. Another potty break is needed during a long road trip. Pretty wildflowers or a bubbling brook turns a focused hike into a meandering mosey. Encountering delays is a natural part of a journey. How we deal with encountering delays affects the rest of the journey.
I’m not always chasing an ambition, but when I decide to go for something I often go BIG. Take my Self-Love September Journey, I decided I would create videos every day in September to share my spiritual witchy practice. Only a few days in, I’ve found some delays.
I totally didn’t realize how labor and time intensive this would be. Obviously, it would be a big project and require focus, determination, and commitment. I also didn’t consider the impact of days which required me to focus on other things, as well.
The past two days, I’ve encountered a series of technical challenges which I’ve overcome or found ways to work around the issue. I’m learning a ton of things about this process that I had no idea I would need to consider:
Instead of feeling like a failure for not meeting my self-imposed SUPER AMBITIOUS deadline… I’m celebrating the awesomeness of learning new skills and continuing to create despite things being challenging! I’m not going to give up just because I’ve had some set backs. I will remain focused, keep trying, and practice perseverance, in a self-loving way.
Practice #4 is taking it’s slooooooowwwwwwww time compiling. Hopefully by the time I go to bed, I’ll be able to get it uploading to YouTube – if not, I’ll start it first thing in the morning. Until then, I’ll continue posting the daily divination prompts in Wyrd Divination whether the videos are ready or not.
