Day 52-54, September 14, 2016 @3:04
It has been a few days since I’ve been here. Life happens and I cannot show up as planned. I do the best I can. I am here now, tapping out my words and thoughts for those days.
Doing different isn’t easy. It isn’t difficult. Every day there are numerous opportunities of doing different, of doing better, of turning a different page. We must seize that moment to answer when they knocking on the door. The same moments will not come again.
But as I have just said, life happens. If you don’t hear or can’t answer the knock, so be it. Let go the regret or berating of yourself. The opportunity is gone. Be more attentive and answer the next knock. Life is full of them. You can be sure of that.
On this 54th day of my year of doing different, I’m sitting back, enjoying the fire in the woods. I’m trying to heed my own words. It’s difficult not to strive, worry and regret. It is possible to change – one little act at a time, one day at a time. Some days you will stumble. Who hasn’t ever?
When was your last stumble? Did you fall? Till tomorrow, I hope.

Hi Lily, every stumble is life itself – a lesson in itself and a valuable one at that. Falling is what a lesson not learnt would look like. For the rest, it is a learning – getting up, dusting off and moving on, chin high, eyes towards the skies in renewed hope for another day.
Thank you! I have just come back from the woods. Trying to catch up with life.
