In today’s prompt from Five Minutes in the Morning, we’re invited to look at the things we think we’ll never do and the reasons why.

Divide a piece of paper into two columns. Set your timer for five minutes. In the first column, make a list of all the things you think you could never do. In the other, write down the reasons why you think that is so.

Return to this regularly and examine your justifications. Are they legitimate or are there fear-based self-limiting excuses?

I struggled with this prompt because it inherently focuses on lack. I understand these are limiting beliefs. I know I can do all the things I wrote, but right now all I want to do is live each day with love and light.

I know some days will be more challenging, but I don’t doubt it will happen.

Publish a book

Live in a downtown area
