Zero to Hero ~ day 14

Progress is good and it is timely for me to participate in this project.  The Zero to Hero project is a challenge set by WordPress for those bloggers new to the Blogosphere.

To be honest I feel uninformed and up until now, have been just doing the basics on my posts since I started blogging in 2012.  So as a blogger, I am still relatively new to the process.  I have now developed and experimented with a number of other aspects to my blog and posts, thanks to the daily WordPress assignments.  I have:

  • added and updated ‘doodads‘ – widgets is the correct term.
  • personalised my page with my own photo as a header.
  • connected with other bloggers a little more and created some links, made some comments to let those that I appreciate know and acknowledged the posts that I enjoy (by making a comment and adding a link on a ‘thank you‘ post) hopefully I did this correctly.
  • adjusted my ‘tags’ and ‘about’ post to be more informed and fresh.

It has all been a bit complicated really (learning new things and trying – making a mistake – correcting and trying again) a bit like life at the moment.  Do you find there are times when you feel like you are on a ‘hurdy gurdy ride’ (going round and round in circles and getting nowhere while someone else has the controls) and you just want it to stop for a bit so you can regain your balance and catch your breath?

It is quite an unsettling feeling.

The last month has been a little like that for me.  It is busy and that is a good thing – it is important to have something to do and a purpose in my day.  But, sometimes we can all feel a little bit too stretched and forget to make time for our health and healing – to refill our emotional tank (with positive energy) regularly.

I have been feeling a little ‘wobbly’ emotional and strangely enough it has also affected my physical balance and I have found myself holding on to the wall and the handrail more often than I usually would.  Maybe it is an attempt to feel and ‘be’ more grounded and stable.  I believe it is the ‘being’ that makes the difference.

Time to stop, take stock of where I am on my emotional and spiritual journey.  January is a good time to rest, reflect and recuperate – to get prepared for the next stage of the journey.

About holistic complications

I like to work on a personal goal or challenge each year .. learning and growing, facing my fears, embracing love and challenges and stepping forward to create a more holistic and authentic life, living with good intentions - a clear, focused and 'real' life! I want to be more accountable for the life I live and create! My experience of being real and authentic are quite complicated at times!! I blog to share my experiences and ideas and to reflect on what inspires me!
