Going for it – Getting comfortable with the uncomfortable (Week 9)

I came very close to removing learning guitar from my going for it list, but I worked out in my mind that even though I’m not “as committed” to it and I do feel like I’m struggling that…that’s okay. The path is mine and won’t look like anyone else’s path. There is enough joy and intrigue that keeps whispering to continue on with it regardless of the expectations of my ego.

Week 9

Short and sweet this week. I ordered some “rucking “ gear and am excited to explore and share with you in the upcoming weeks what that’s all about and how it works out.

The beginning of a grill master…

Haven’t had a grill since the divorce. Yes, I’ll move it outside 🤪

Remember to give yourself love and tenderness along your way,

    1. Thank you, Leafy😊


  3. Great job!! I absolutely love grilling and have grilled so many things that I never thought of! Definitely more fun than the kitchen for me. Your sesame soy beef bowl must have been good as it has a smiley face by it! 😃 You are so steady with your workout routine too, that I really admire. I have had good weeks and bad weeks however work has been crazy busy with the summer season approaching and that keeps me quite active. I sure hope you have a kick ass day today! I’m looking forward to a 3 day weekend this week!


  4. Thank you my friend 😊! You definitely deserve a 3 day weekend – enjoy.

    1. Thanks, Liz. I’m using Rosetta Stone. It has little 10 minute lessons that work perfect throughout the week.


  8. Congrats on Week 9! The only person you can be better than is the person you were before, and you’re doing it, Dwight. 👏🏻


  9. Lovely grill there. Can’t wait to see photos of the food! How’s the cooking coming on? Xx

    1. It’s going good. I’m learning a lot. Never new veggies could add so much flavor to a meal. I’m currently using a food service called Hello Fresh that sends me two meals a week with all the ingredients and the recipe to cook them. Ideally I’d prefer Hello Chef where a chef appears, cooks the meal, then departs…kidding…kinda🤪

      1. God I’d love that! Hello chef, thanks chef, bye bye chef! Well done you though. That’s sounds like a great idea because I often spend a fortune buying food for one meal and then chuck it all away after that. 🥰
