Queen of my own heart. Liver of my own life.
Former target of domestic violence.
Advocate for others who still are.
10 long years of sorrow, joy, heartache, love, pain, hope, regret, illness, gratitude.
10 years ago today since we left that house of horror.
Recovery is a life-long project … or feels that way at least.
Reach out to someone who you know has been there too. ❤︎
Have you ever seen yourself through the eyes of the person that you are becoming?
To see our future selves in our own reflection is a moment of incredulity.
If you have asked the universe for something that you desire, that something is waiting for you to collect it … once you have done the work that is required to get to it of course.
That includes the new version of yourself that you are working so hard to become … it already exists … and sometimes we are treated to a glimpse of it when we catch ourselves in the mirror in that millisecond before prejudice awakens …
Make a written plan to increase chances of success
It’s day 13 and I realise that I have no precise written plan regarding how I am going to have a home of my own by the end of the 500 days.
I have a mental one of course – work hard and save hard and be alert for opportunities.
But without a written plan the scheme is doomed to failure.
So tomorrow, after I go walking in the forest, I shall make one. And if the internet is available I shall share a rough draft with you in the hope that it might be helpful.
Internet has been very patchy here ~ I’m in Mapleton, Sunshine Coast, for a couple of nights ~ so no guarantees.
Meantime, travel and lack of sleep have caught up so I am reluctantly allowing myself to rest ❤︎
What if you could have an extra three hours in your day to achieve your goals and dreams! Well it’s happened to me – and the person doing the gifting is … me! Here’s how I do it … When I started this 500 day project I committed to getting up at four in the […]
Yesterday I alluded to the fact that we could “make a request to our maker” and be given instructions on how to achieve what it is that we desire. What did I mean by instructions? I also called it “guidance” further on in the piece and I think that’s a better term – one that […]
How did this 500 day personal challenge come about? Blame Gary Vaynerchuck for one, though he’s not the only catalyst that inspired me to launch this challenge … there have been many others who inspired me to act over the years. Ultimately though, in time, the biggest inspirer of action has to be oneself, and […]
Hi, I’m Seona MacDonald. For my 55th (2016) birthday I gave myself the long overdue gift of drawing a line in the sand with respect to my personal values, standards, boundaries and expectations. Translated: I’m caring for myself before others. Radical? Maybe, but I’m hanging in there because the result is an empowering surge in self-respect, personal power, […]
Definitely a bit of a train track theme going on in my work and life at the moment. which gives pause to wonder … what does it mean? I know the answer. I’m resetting the tracks. Destination clear ahead, express route. And ain’t no fucker gonna derail me this time, mama.
If you have ever beaten yourself up cos you think you’re not a real “creative” please take a look at this video. We need to be gentle with ourselves and stop feeling ashamed that we’re not living up to external expectations. Amen.
