101 dolls in 101 days.
I feel excited ...
I liken it to the feeling after attending an invigorating retreat
or a stimulating conference
or reading an engrossing novel -
my perspective on life is forever changed.
And I wish it wasn't over
because the euphoria lifts my spirit.
And I feel I can do anything
but the excuses are already lining up in my head!
Possibilities abound in my thoughts
but the nay-sayers are circling the wagons -
the self-critic; the negative voices of people long dead;
the judge (and the jury); those who demand I conform.
But I have demonstrated ...
perseverance and determination,
trust in myself and in the divine,
a sense of purpose.
All of these qualities I can apply in all life's endeavours -
creative, intellectual, spiritual, emotional, physical.
And I will.
