I’ve been working on a new project that’s in the Semi-Together personal development universe. Leading up to my 40th birthday next month, I’m doing a daily reflection practice called The Evolving 40. And I’d love for you to join me!
Starting this week, I’m posting a reflection every morning on how a different theme shows up for me, asking, “How have I evolved in this area? How am I evolving?”
If you’d like, you can do this daily along with me, or jump in when inspired. Post on your own social with hashtag #evolving40, or in the comments of my posts at @evolvingperfectionist on Instagram.
In case you're wondering if this kind of practice is too self-focused at a time when the world is in so much need of change, I have a couple of thoughts:
- 2020 has set the stage for an overhaul of our priorities and plans. This spring’s events have been a catalyst to think about what we stand for and how we want to be living. Now is a fitting time for reflection about how to be a force for good.
- I believe that, as educator and civil rights activist Mary McLeod Bethune said, “The progress of the world will call for the best that all of us have to give.” Change work starts with each of us. Through intentional practices like meditation, journaling, and therapy, we ground ourselves and can better show up for each other with clarity and compassion.
