Consistency is hard for me. But on this 6th last day of 2020 I give thanks for my consistent efforts to be consistent. It’s been a recurring theme for me this year; trying to form and maintain healthy habits for self. And of course, it hasn’t been easy. But as the year has progressed, I’ve gotten better and any progress no matter how small must be lauded.
Even when I’ve thought, Yes, I made it! I’ve gone 21 days without eating junk, or I’ve gone for a walk for 21 days straight. Somewhere along the way, I’ve faltered. I’m a determined soul though and I keep trying.
Well, 99 days ago, I told myself I was going to write on my blog every single day for an undetermined amount of time. I’d just write about whatever was on my mind, a little daily reflection, or daily musings as I call it. Simply, to help me get in the habit of writing.
During Sacred Online Circle this morning with Global Leadership Village, Rev. Aina-Nia Ayo’dele highlighted what a challenge consistency can be for many. She praised our consistent efforts to wake up daily at the same time to join circle and that’s when I realized, oh wow…I’ve been doing it. It’s not easy, but I’ve been consistent.
You can’t pour from an empty cup folks. It might seem counterintuitive, especially for the mama’s, but if you haven’t started already, please try to take care of yourself, first. Ase.
