7 Day Challenge – Do Something New

7 Day Challenge – Do Something New

www.jodiburke.com

Energy Moves

Ever since doing the 30 Day Photo Challenge, I felt there was something more, something different.

I saw this Tedx talk the other day – and I thought to myself what a great idea!!

For 365 days, this guy did something new every day, now that is stretching your growth, imagination and experiences for sure!!

So often, we get into the same old, same old every day – we go to work the same way, see the same people, eat at the same places etc

What have you been wanting to do that you haven’t done?

What have you been saying that ‘one day I’ll……..? (you fill in the space)

What have you ben wanting to do but are afraid, or fear what others may think? (as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else :))!

This is an invitation to step out of your comfort zone and do, try, eat, experience something new for the next 7 days.

You can keep it all to yourself or share it – but just do something!!

There are no rules, nothing is good / bad or right / wrong  – with integrity of course 🙂

Each minute, each day gives us a fresh opportunity of a choice – we can keep choosing the same thing or experience from the buffet table of what life has to offer.  If you don’t like it, now you know and don’t have to experience it again.

If you do like it, then you can have more of it – yet until you try it you will never know!

In the past week, here are a few of my new experiences –

ate Chilaquiles – a Mexican style breakfast, took a Spanish class (always one day), tried shooting 2 new ways and because of that I had to learn had to edit a new way (the above image), I painted my toenails Gold as I’v never done that always stayed with plain colors, sat and talked with my new bff the rooster and it was rather entertaining.

Ideas – but the list is endless

have a space day or even just a massage, pedi, mani or facial that you’ve always wanted to experience (male or female like why not??!)

cooking class

art class

painting class

spend an entire day at the beach

go to the park for a picnic

play pickle ball (or any other sport)

learn a second language

go out for lunch in that cafe you keep seeing

go to an art museum

sky dive (ok that might be extreme but why not??)

hot air balloon ride

take that trip you’ve always wanted to

try some food you’ve never tried (the list there could be endless)

got waxed – male or female

play an instrument

go for a long walk in nature

get some energy work done

have a reading by a psychic

talk to a stranger

take some pet supplies to the animal shelter

take food to the homeless

I could go on………..if not now, why?

The only time there is, is Now!

Create a fantastic magical day!!

Raise Your Vibe – Choose Love

 

In Quantum Physics, Everything IS Energy,

there’s  different realities

and

unlimited possibilities,

as it’s all energy that becomes matter.

In order to change realities,

a reality that fires you up, lights you up,

you need to change your frequency

to align with it.

So, raise your vibration!! 🙂

A Moment in time

This one I call – A Moment in Time

After my 30 day self challenge and taking a break from being on the computer so much, I have been searching for some things – what kind of Art Photography do I really want to create.

So much of what I have created and still is in my mind to be created I realize has meaning, a different perspective and some sort of metaphor.  It’s a way I get to intertwine my love for creativity, photography, art, quantum physics and more of the truth of who we really are.

I love to challenge myself to learn and grow and now that I am finally stepping more into the creative person I’ve always been, but have held it back for one day, the downloads of things I want to create is inspiring and a tad overwhelming as it’s coming in fast. lol

I also realize that I love a little diversity, not just in art, photography but also life.

I’ve been getting this urge to paint lately, so I took out what paint supplies I have with me from Canada and started playing, which btw I suck at.  I couldn’t figure out why I was having this urge and then I discovered some Impressionist Photography and was blown away.  I’ve tried in many years ago, but now it seemed different – painting with my camera – so very cool!

I share that with you as a little nudge in your life of do you follow the energy of what is being given to you, even if it doesn’t make sense at the time or do you dismiss it?

Sometimes it leads us to some great things that we could have never ‘thought’ about with our limited thinking.

Our mind is our computer that only knows how to regurgitate what it already knows.

Our heart is our connection to our Soul.

Where our truth lies.

This one is called Take the Step

Sometimes in life, we feel lost, confused or can’t see the next step,

that is when we need to trust and really listen to our own guidance,

from within.

It may not make sense at the time,

as it’s usually beyond the mind

and ends up even better than we could imagine.

It’s called The Magical Mystery Tour

No I wasn’t on anything while creating this one 🙂

it was created for fun and to see if I could – all about learning new skills

but

What IF……

you could take a magical mystery tour,

where would you go?

That is what is so cool about imagination!!

This one is called Let Go

When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?

Or just let your mind wonder off into dreams, other possibilities, been playful or had that childlike sense of wonder……….

What if………???

This one is called The Box

The box represents mediocrity, conformity and security,

all illusions.

The truth is,

You were never born to be in a box,

break free and listen to your heart,

it’s knows the truth of you!

This one I did keep kind of easy as I am working on a few other fun ones!

Yet I did learn a couple of new things!

Wouldn’t it be fun to explore new places, from different perspectives?

With a little more fun?

This one I call Searching

Whatever you are searching for,

including the magic,

is already inside of you.

Just learn to lean into it,

hear it,

trust it

and it’s not from your head!

After surrendering yesterday, I woke up today more energized and wanted to work on a new image

here it is, it is called The Dance

Letting go of what we think we know

After surrendering yesterday, I came up with a different image than what I had started on.

I call it Thto dance in the unknown,

is where the magical and mystical lies.

Will you dance there?

You might be looking at this photo and wondering what is so special.

I mean it’s cool and all, 2 young kids in Antigua learning the ropes of the selling their parents do at the top of the hike on the mountain.

But that’s not why I included it.

The real reason is I was working on an image, something different, cool, mystical and only had 1 more thing to do after several hours of working on it.

Oops, I closed the wrong window and I hadn’t been saving as I went.

Note to self – save my work way more often. 🙂

I didn’t have the gas to restart it today – tomorrow maybe.

I won’t miss a day though and I do have to do some clean up on this one!
