Who knew this gal could start loving repetition??!!

The first week of the Franklin makeover, I completely forgot to look for my most important virtue. How ironic it was Persistence.

Having the Kindness week with keeping the log page open on my desktop, it forced me to look at it multiple times/day – to read other’s comments and look for / think of the kindness I saw that day.

(As an aside, it made me realize how many ‘things’ happen in a day where I take them for face value as opposed to noticing if it was an act of kindness, courage, decisiveness, etc. By breaking it down, it is giving the occurrence more meaning to me.)

After one week of looking for kindness, it is like a new habit has formed and I’m noticing my next virtue, Courage everywhere. And, it’s becoming Fun!

If I were to look back at my first few blog posts, the course was like a new puzzle. Pieces were haphazardly strewn over the place and I was looking for the box to see the finished product. I was told to have faith and things will come together.

Well, things are coming together. And for once, I don’t need to see the finished product, because there may never be one since I’m continually evolving and growing.

As things come together, I’m starting to feel so much more confident in my own skin …. I’m feeling powerful and I love it!
