Hello, Artists, Makers, Creatives, Dreamers, + Doers!
We are entering the final week of #The100DayProject (though I cannot emphasize this enough – however many days it takes you to do your project is perfect!).
Recap and reflect:
Where are you in your project?
What are you committed to doing by Day 100?
What are you feeling / learning / experiencing?
Submit your work:
If you’d like to be featured in the next (and last!) Reel, please submit an image or short video here. For our Day 100 Reel, choose your favorite image from any week in the project.
Our theme this week is honoring our work.
I might be overly earnest and wildly sentimental, but transitions make me feel a lot of feelings. And somewhat conflicting feelings at that! It varies from year to year and project to project, but oftentimes part of me is ready to take a break, be free from commitment. Part of me is proud of what I accomplished and also frustrated with what I didn’t. Part of me feels sad that the daily connection to this community is winding down. The other part of me knows it’s always here. It’s all here – grief, relief, happiness, you name it.
To honor our work – and ourselves – is to honor the full range of our experience and our feelings.
I think in years past I have sometimes failed to adequately transition – both myself and the community – with the thoughtfulness it requires and deserves. I will be sitting with these questions in this next week, and I hope you find value in them too:
How are you feeling about the project ending soon?
What is your creativity asking for now?
Do you feel complete with your project?
What does “honoring your work” look like for you now?
How can you transition with intention?
I agree with you that it’s important to recognize and honor transitions. I appreciate that you offered some questions to aid the process. The feelings that arrive for me at time of transitions mirror some of yours - glad it’s almost over, sadness, joy, feeling of pride for completing the journey.
Last year I was very successful - 100 days plus. This year, not so much, due to two months interruption with health. But I know that it's Okay! I plan to go forward - maybe making my own 100 - or not. The cool part is the happiness I get from doing MY practice, when I get to.
Not complete this year, but enthusiastic to continue in whatever way works out.
I'm feeling all the feels, too. Looking forward to next year. Grateful for our leader Lindsay - who gets it done everyday - And grateful for the Community, everyone 💞. Hasn't it been fun? 😊
