Butternut uses her Stomata

My stomata collects oxygen though :P 

 

Hi there! I am a Rebel coming to visit and maybe make Druids my home. 


I do not like making to many commitments but I like to think of them as intentions.   Commitments play to my long shame game I've played, so I've taking the approach of keeping it simple.

 

Intention 1 - Show up (to Ju Jitsu)

    My ego (also called insecurity) tries to keep me away.  I don't need to fight with these feelings, I just need to listen, but still SHOW UP. If it is my husband that wants to do some training on the weekend or to class

 

Intention 2 - Find my breath daily 

    Mediation or Wim hof, or both.  I can find this in the morning before work in bed, in an ice bath, or out in nature.  It is my intention to find it daily. 

 

Intention 3 - Consume only what is needed 

   Food is my addiction but also my source of energy and life.  I must eat to live not live to eat. (This includes coffee) 

 

Goal/Challenge 1 - Track emotions on work calendar

   I've been noticed a trend with my emotions, it seems like every 3-4 days I wake up sad or angry.  I just want to track this with:

           Blue circle - Sad/ Angry/ Fogged

           Pink circle - Neutral, no over emotions

           Orange - Over joyed, happy, darn good mood 

 

Well wish me luck!

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

This is an interesting observation! And a nice way to track it too 🔵 :tickled_pink: 🔶 That's as close as I got with the emojis we have at hand :) 

 

Good luck with your challenge!

Thanks ya'all for the warm welcome!

 

Intentions are working well. Last night I had a glass and a half of wine, poured the second and didn't even drink it.. . I consumed what i needed ^_^

#1 Show up - I've been showing up!  I realized that training with my Husband though, I worry about hurting him and it slows down my train of thought and training.   I love being partners with him cause it's fun, but it's just different then training with someone else.  Also he is vulnerable as well, if I accidentally hurt him, he will give me that "Ouch" look, as if he was training with someone else, he would suck it up...  

 

If any of you have watched the lego movie, I feel like Emmit when he becomes a master builder, with Ju jistu, after doing it for 1 1/2 years, the lingo, moves, and instructions are making sense!!  I finaly reached my "AHA!!!" point.  its awesome.

 

#2 - breath daily-  This is happening as well!  found 2 things on youtube for at work....   Box Breathing  and Calm breathing bubble

 

#3 Consume -  This has been a loevely mantra and helping alot.  I have cut out Wheat for the month of Feb. with my hubby, this was hard because I started putting sugar to replace, so I had to catch myself over consuming.  Other then that I found this wonderful Gatha:

 

"This Food is a gift of the whole universe, the earth, the sky, and much hard work.

 

May I live in a way that makes me worthy to receive it.

 

May I take only foods that nourish me and prevent illness.

 

I accept this food so that I may realize the path of understanding and love."

 

This has made me look at the avacado I put on a salad and think about the people that harvest and truckers working late night to drive it to us and how grateful I live in a time I can have Avacados and lettuce anytime I want!! 

 

#Goal - track feelings - It's been working well!  Working on "Working out my happiness muscles"  Growing up in chaos and negativity my whole life, I need to work out happiness muscles just like we work on getting a better butt by doing squats, walking, etc., I need to work out being happy by being patient, telling my anger to step a aside to happiness can shine, etc. 

 

Since Feb 10th 

Blue - 4 days

Pink - 4 days

Orange - 13 days.

 

I think its working! ^_^
