Today is day 100 of my friend Deb Prewitt's 100 Days to 100% challenge! I took on the challenge of doing a stitch meditation every day. If you have been following along you know I didn't stitch every day and have not achieved my 100% goal. I did make great progress towards my goal of taking time to slow down and stitch or just be every day.
The progress is what is important more than the 100%.
I pushed through some layers of excuses along the way.
I discovered ways around some stumbling blocks like not having everything ready to go ahead of time. I created a stitch basket and box that have lots of bits and leftovers that I find when I clean my studio up. Now, I have lots of ingredients for my daily stitch at hand so I can just sit down and grab some things and stitch.
I did not beat myself up when I didn't meet the daily challenge. Life is about flexibility and forgiveness.
I did fall in love with the process of stitching small bits of things together. When I am not able to make the time to stitch I miss it! That means I am well on the way to making my stitch meditation practice a non-negotiable in my life.
On some of the days that I couldn't stitch I did use a traditional guided meditation. Yay for me!
Tomorrow starts another 100 days. I will continue my stitch meditations and will add another challenge to myself.
I think my new challenge will be a daily sketch. That will be challenging for me. Actually trying to do something every day consistantly..day in and day out...is the real challenge. :-)
Want to play along? What will you challenge yourself to do during the next 100 days? Eat better, walk more, create something, love more?
