Ten months ago, I started off on my first 𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘐 𝘓𝘰𝘴𝘵 𝘈𝘭𝘭 𝘔𝘺 𝘍-𝘤𝘬𝘴 experience; the testing-out of my beloved bookbaby and 1-month challenge. And I learned a whole lot, especially around the fucks that I still had to lose.
If you check out #fucklessadventures from last year on Instagram, you’ll see me dressing unusually for me (to blend in); singing my heart out (whilst cringing at my voice); and meditating in public (at a nearly-empty destination).
My review in early December, when I finished it, was that it “definitely infused an otherwise difficult month with joyful detours and mindful presence.” And it continued to do that as I integrated the wisdom from my experiences throughout the IMMENSELY challenging winter and spring that followed.
But after my testing, I also knew that in addition to having much *learning* to do before teaching, the project wasn’t done yet; not even the Fuckless Adventures section, which is the shortest (but most visible).
While the Fuckfull to Fuckless tale portion of the book still isn’t even close (at all) to being finished, I’ve decided it’s time for another public testing of the other two parts: the Fuckless Adventures and the meditation challenge.
I’ll be making rewrites a priority this month, while also testing out as many Adventures as I can think of. And I’ll be tweaking/testing the meditation section so there’s a challenging option for the already-converted. (The timing also serves to re-energize a historically bummer time of year for me.)
SO, please do check out my Instagram to help me test this baby out! These posts will be all over the place, but they’ll be focused on things that develop authenticity, vulnerability, and integrated mindfulness; the primary focus/objective of my book. (And also fun. I like fun.)
I have to do 20+ Adventures, but hope to brainstorm and test 30 – we’ll see what else life has planned for me this month!
Wish me luck, and, as always, thanks for listening. 😘
