Change Almost Anything in 21 Days: What's Changed?

Writing an affirmation 10 times a day for 21 days is supposed to set forces in motion and begin the process of change. Since yesterday was day 21 of my first go at this, I thought you might be interested in what has changed.

my affirmation over the past 21 days

Here are some of the changes I've observed.
  • Increased patience in some areas
  • Discovery of something called the micromovement
  • Sold an unfinished dress form doll

Most importantly, I started filling out an application to become a vendor at a local craft fair this summer. My mind began its usual routine of feeding me excuses about why I couldn't do a show that went something like this:
  • I won't be ready in time for the show (i.e. won't have enough product made)
  • I don't have a booth design to submit to the jury along with my application
  • What if my art isn't good enough?
  • What if I run out of product during the show?
  • What if I don't sell anything?
  • I should apply next year because I'll have more time to prepare (I've been telling myself this tale for at least 2 years now.)
I'm going to be terrific in this show!
Do any of these mind memes (meem) sound familiar to you?  Writing them out shines the light of reality on them and makes them a little easier to solve or at least come up with a back up plan.

Bottom line, even though I'm outside my comfort zone I choose not to let the excuses win this time. I'll acknowledge the fears and offer my gratitude for wanting to keep me safe but they no longer get to live rent free inside my head. 
"I am now ready and willing to fearlessly move forward in a resistance free state of allowing to live the creative,  financially prosperous life of my dreams!"

    I'm so happy that you are filling out the street fair application. I think you will be fine. Your art is just so wonderful, I don't think selling will be an issue. You may run out of things, but bring a small album of your work and take orders. I think you will be a hit!




Each and every comment adds a bit of cheer to my day. Thank you so much for popping over. I hope to see you again soon.
