What would you say to 365 days of wildly imperfect practice in 2018?
I posed this question to my Continuous Practice Group and to other friends on Facebook, and it seems to have resonated. Here are a few of the responses I’ve received:
- This makes me happy.
- It’s time.
- I’m in – wildly imperfect
- I can commit to “wildly imperfect”
- Now that is a standard which I may be able to achieve with some effort.
- I am wildly imperfect – this is made for me!!!
- I think I can be wildly imperfect.
- A wildly imperfect continuous practice for an all too imperfect me! I might just be able to wrap my head around this.
- I LOVE it!
What if we started the new year with the commitment to daily practice and at the same time committed to letting ourselves off the hook for practicing imperfectly?
I think we can step back from ego a bit if we stop making Continuous Practice into test. No way to get an A, or even a pass or fail. This is is not a race or a competition.
What if we simply show up with kindness and compassion when we miss a day or a week or even a month? What if we remember that practice is always about this moment and that we can return at any time?
I am working on some parameters and guidelines for this 365-day practice period and I’d love to have your input. But also, ask yourself now what you could commit to for a full year. Something simple and sustainable is best
