7 Items, 7 Days, 7 Months - Day 14

7-7-7 Challenge / Day 14

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbour.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover" - Mark Twain

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to feel the lightness of being?  I imagine it would feel like the in-between stage of sleep and wakefulness or the freedom of simply sailing away to new destinations.

Experiencing new things in life is scary but it's also so refreshing.  When the fear of letting go or forgiving yourself steps in remember the amazement children experience when they see something for the first time.

I've heard the saying that "we are our worst critic" and it is so true.  We are also our BEST cheerleader.

You are an amazing person.

Give yourself the approval and forgiveness to let go and move forward in life.  What do you love to do?  What do you want to experience in life?  Where do you want to go on your next vacation?

With each day that passes in this 7-7-7 Challenge, I find myself and DH growing.  We are growing individually as well as a couple.  We are starting to understand the lightness of being and can't wait to see where we are at the end of the seventh month of this challenge.

Have fun and challenge yourself today.  Try something new!  Even if that something new is a new flavor of ice cream.
P.S., What seven items could you donate or sell today that would give you a feeling of lightness?
