I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged a writing assignment, but after the week we’ve just conquered I think this one will be fitting. Besides, I’m striving to bring out the writer in some of you. I have to put you to work at some point. This weekend, I want you to answer this question:
How do you feel after the eviction process?
What is going through your mind? Do you feel lost? Lonely? Confused? Or do you feel free? In control? Energized? How did this week change the course of your life both personally and professionally? Explore the aftermath then get it down on paper…computer…iPad…something!
The reason why I want you to record your feelings is because this will not be the only time you’ll have to go through this process. There will be others that will somehow maneuver themselves in your head, intentionally or unintentionally, and you will need to kindly evict them as well. I want you to take note of how you felt before (which we covered on Tuesday), during, and after the eviction process. What was it like going through this week? Was it difficult or easy? Do you think it made you stronger or weaker?
I want you to be honest with YOURSELF. Remember, you are the only one that has to deal with the consequences of your actions. If you know that a certain person, place, or experience needs to go but you can’t find it in you to get rid of them then that’s a key indicator that you need to strengthen yourself mentally and spiritually. Maybe you got rid of them and in the process realized that some people you’ve evicted from the past weren’t as bad as you made them out to be. Maybe you realized that EVERYONE and EVERYTHING currently in your life had to go and you need to progress in a new direction. (I don’t do new starts, that means having to relearn EVERYTHING all over again!)
Whatever the case may be, journal it. There is a lesson in you going through this. You came across this blog for a reason. Be it the week it actually happened or months from now, something inside of you is saying “Okay, enough of this! Something has to give!”, and now is the time to give it up.
No one has to know these feelings but you. It’s a great way to track your progress, explore how this week has helped you, and allows you to see the progress you’ve made. By the same token it forces you to see your own faults that at some point you will have to deal with. Be it one word, one page, or one book, write down what’s going on within you. Then you can see what has been going on outside of you. Your world starts within. Get that in order and the rest will follow with ease.
