revolution week two

If you're just joining us, we've just finished the second week of the Digital 40 Days challenge - a program combining yoga, meditation, and guided questions via email and podcasts - and this week's recap is brought to you from Danne, who you may remember as our Wanderlust Vermont scribe.

random fact: I have a cat the size of a small bear
what did you learn this week? Sometimes it’s better to let go than to hold on.
a word that describes your 40-day experience so far: Questioning

this week i learned...

I have a bit of a confession to make...I’m not feeling the slightest bit of personal revolution thus far—in fact, I feel exactly the same as I did 2 weeks ago. I’m well aware that change doesn’t happen overnight, but that’s just it—what I’ve found with this program is that it isn’t much of a change from my normal life: I already have a well-established yoga practice, I’ve recently committed to (and have actually followed through with) meditating each day, eating clean is always a top priority of mine, and I’ve spent the past year or so inquiring within about a lot of the questions that Baron raises throughout the program.

Danne's cat is the size of a small bear

So...what does this mean? It means that maybe for once in my life I’m at a point where I don’t need a revolution. It means that all that work I’ve been doing has actually paid off, and ultimately it means that I’m ok—more than ok—right now, and that’s a pretty awesome thing to discover if you ask me.

We'd love to hear from other Digital 40 Day-ers out there. What have you learned? What (if anything) is challenging you? Use the #digital40days tag on twitter and instagram to stay connected and share an update on how things are going.

I love the honesty with which Danne shared that she’s NOT feeling change. I have a hard time with really structured 10- 20- 30- and beyond day kind of challenges. I strive to try to make each day a little better than the last, making it feel at this point like I’ve been on a “challenge” and journey for all of my life. I feel my best when looking back over the years, versus a challenge or a very specific point in time.

I appreciate life-changing and reflection challenges and acknowledge that they work well for many people, but I’ve also found acceptance in knowing they’re not for me.

And that cat – adorable!

Sounds like Danne has it all figured out. It’s what you learn after you know it all that really counts.

Great post, Danne! Congrats to you on manifesting your own revolution, and for sticking with the Digital 40 Days anyway.

So far here’s what I’ve learned:

I have to admit that I feel the same way. I don’t feel much of a revolution rather then a confirmation that I have been on the right track for the past 2 years, constantly evolving and challenging my old believes.
But still I do enjoy getting my daily emails and like the feeling that many people around the planet are currently all doing the same thing. :D
