Yes, sounds pretty terrifying: we are all accountable to other people, all the time. To be honest, I had kind of forgotten the importance of revealing our game plan to close friends, family and counsellors so they can help keep us focused.
I attended a workshop on releasing the cry of your heart yesterday. At the end, we had to make a short list of what we were going to do within the next 24 hours to start living out our heart's cry. I was kind of nervous because I know I have (slightly) neglected writing short inspiration pieces recently...mainly for lack of inspiration. So, I committed to putting a new piece of my writing "out there"--even if it's not perfect, even if it's not complete.
Sometimes, we need a swift kick in the behind to get things rolling again. Or perhaps all it takes is a little inspiration...
