Mission 101 - 3 Month Update

I meant to post this the day before yesterday, but I've been plagued by both internet woes and sickness. So here is a slightly belated 3 month update (my first real update).

Start date: Saturday, September 2, 2006
Ending date: Saturday, May 30, 2009


Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
6 / 101
(1.0%)



Completed:

1. Organize this list (Misc. 9/2/06 Done as I posted - what can I say? I need instant gratification)

2. See Keller Williams live (Misc. Nov. 5, 2006 - The Neighborhood Theater in Charlotte...it was awesome)

5. Find a female friend (Misc. *waves* Hi, lahermite)

21. Get attuned to Violet Flame Reiki (Misc. October 21, 2006, 1, 2, & Master levels)

34. Get a paid LJ account (Writing. 9/2/06 Thank you, simplydorei!)

70. Pay library fine & return all books that aren't mine (Personal Improvement. I did this one. Unfortunately, I already need to do it again)

In Progress:

3. Learn how to make a compost pile (Misc. Had to take my book back to the library, and the *cough* new fine is in the way. LOL Any links are appreciated)

9. Get my DONA, Int'l certification (Doula. Almost done with this, just need to get on the ball)

24. Read 101 Books, including 3 from: (Writing. Will make a book list post for reference soon)

25. The New York Times Bestseller list (Writing.)

29. Poetry books (Writing.)

35. FLY consistently for 28 days (FLY-ing. I continue to start-stop with this one)

42. Choose a persona (SCA This is a process. At least we have a culture picked out)

56. Start a homeschool routine with the girls (Family. Also a slow process.)

59. Go a full day without scolding or yelling (Family. LOL Yes, a slow process. I don't stay as mindful as I should, and need to bring this one to consciousness more)

83. Bake something to give away at least 6 times (Love. Apparently I did this once and don't recall...good thing I'm keeping track on here...10/27/06)

85. Meditate every day (Spirit, Month-long projects. I need to be more mindful here, too)

88. Keep a journal (Personal Improvement, Month-long projects. I'm keeping one, but I don't write consistently enough yet.)

95. Send a card/wk (Love, Six Week Projects. Have sent a few, again, I lose focus and consistency. Will start keeping track.)

96. Do EFT every day (Personal Improvement, Six Week Projects. Did really well with this, then puttered out due to sheer forgetfulness. Will start using aforementioned journal to keep track!)

98. Take the family somewhere new every week (Family, Three Month Projects. Did *really* well with this, but lost track when the car broke down. Will pick back up. Picture posts in my journal.)

100. Do the 4T Prosperity Program (Personal Improvement, Three Month Projects. Started this Sept 10, but have not participated regularly or as whole-heartedly as I should. Thinking of waiting til next time, but may just try to devote more energy and catch up)

In Sum:

Realize I must remain mindful if I'm going to honor self-promises. Will start keeping logs of progress in the neglected journal AND I'm going to start reading my goal list twice a day. Goals requiring consecutive or consistent time frames are challenging for me. If I keep FLYing and establish/maintain routines, this should be easier for me. Would benefit from more people staying on my ass &/or encouraging me; plan to talk to Josh (my Beloved) about helping in that way.

Have several projects from my list planned in the near future. Crossing off accomplishments is motivation. Making new friends with similar goals is motivation. Keeping logs of progress is a necessity.

My original list can be found here.

ooh EFT
I just learned about EFT this fall when I was taking Level One & then Two of Therapeutic touch. I talk about both to pretty much anyone who might be willing to listen!

Re: ooh EFT
I do the same. EFT, EFT, EFT. I think I remember reading about the 3ft rule. Tell everyone within 3ft. Guess that doesn't work over the internet. *grin*
Yay ahavah you're doing great!

Re: ooh EFT
That's probably when I started learning about EFT, too. I recently missed an EFT for prosperity class that I was looking forward to. :( I did this one consistently for at least a month or so. It's so easy to do, and just a couple minutes each day. I would do it while I was driving. I've already picked this one back up today. I want to subscribe to Gary's newsletter, but I have so many lists already. I'll probably go ahead and do it, though.

I don't know much about Therapeutic Touch. That's similar to reiki, isn't it? I try to do reiki when I'm tapping, but so often I end up focusing just on the EFT and forget about the reiki. Oh, have you tried EFT at a birth? I haven't had the opportunity to. I have to admit that I might be hesitant to introduce it to clients. It gets some looks.

When I read about EFT and births, I got all excited. I'd love to do that/have that done when I'm going through the process of birthing (someday) Acupuncture, Reiki, EFT, it's going to be an interesting labour. :)

Mm, sounds right! And reiki is never so powerful as during birth, IMO.

Re: ooh EFT
Yes, therapeutic touch and reiki are quite similiar - definately in the same energy/complementary therapy family. Some of the people in my TT practice group are also Reiki practitioners, one is a master. I haven't been to any births since learning about TT and EFT, but I am excited to use them in that context at the next available opportunity. I'll be sure to blog about it when it happens!
