Hmm. In January, I publicly declared I was going to spend 2017 exploring 26 different approaches to serenity. In April, I threw in the towel and admitted I couldn’t keep up with the pace of pursuing serenity alongside posting about it (and dealing with the rest of life). And now… here I am, back online.
Will it last? I’m not 100% sure. When I wrote this post I had feedback from one reader who said she thought the whole project was actually pretty daft. I nodded sagely and took that as proof that I was right to quit. But I’ve also heard from others with more empathy for what I’m trying to do. And I try to remind myself, I started the Serenity Project because I felt I really, really needed to take this journey, for me. That need has evolved, but it hasn’t gone away.
So, for today’s tip, I’m recommending that there may be times when it’s best to quit, but there may also be times when, after a pause, it’s worth trying to get back on the horse. After all… the worst that can happen is you fall off again.
