One Hundred Days

With W-Day looming closer and closer, and spring in the air, I decided to start work on transforming my life. I set out a One Hundred Days Plan; a plan for improving my life over a one hundred day period, and decided to start the plan exactly one hundred days before the wedding.

I thought long and hard about what sort of person I'd like to be. Imagining myself as a married lady seems a bit strange, but that new status also makes it easier to imagine a future me being quite different from the 'old me'. There are MANY areas of my life with room for improvement and I started writing lists of all the things I'd like to be and/or achieve by the time I become a wife.

I narrowed the list down and matched each item on the list to a proverb to live by and then completed a Sigil spell to help me stick with my One Hundred Days Plan (see sigil below).

Ten Proverbs:

One written word is worth a thousand pieces of gold.

The greatest wealth is health.

Tidy house, tidy mind.

Think, write, do.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

Even a sheet of paper has two sides.

Nam myoho renge kyo.

Soap and water and common sense are the best disinfectants.

The garden is the poor man's apothecary.

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

I'll address each of these proverbs separately in future posts to explain what they mean to me, what their effect has been and how I'm getting on with the whole One Hundred Days Plan. I'm already a couple of weeks in and so far it's going very well!

Finally, to that person who yesterday told me to 'get a life' - guess what? I already have a life; and mine exudes inner peace, a kind nature and all round happiness. I have a proverb for you: People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
