week 2 ~ the Naked Face Project

As of February 1, I  joined Caitlin Boyle and Molly Barker (and others!) in their Naked Face Project.    These women make a HUGE ripple in this river o’ life.  Among many other things, Caitlin is the founder of Operation Beautiful.  And among many other things, Molly is the founder of Girls on the Run.  I invite you to read Caitlin’s and Molly’s motivations and observations in their respective blogs.

My motivation is this ~  I want to pay attention to what I HAVE BEEN paying a lot of attention to re: how I look to others AND how that makes me feel about myself.

As promised, here are two images that show what I was using before and what I’m using for these 60 Naked Face days.

The sizing of these images is intentional, as is everything I’m doing during Naked Face.   I’m paying attention and I’m lightening my load.   

The single thing that’s surprised me most is how often I wonder if I’ll keep my load this light AFTER these 60 days.  That tells me two things:

  1.  if I’m pondering 47 days from now, I’m not living in Today as well as I’d prefer and
  2. I need to do a better job of staying in The Moment.

So I’m off to focus on Today.

How do you stay focused in The Moment?

One thought on “week 2 ~ the Naked Face Project

  1. It seems like the older I get, the easier it is to focus on the moment. I have come to realize that there’s not much I can do about the past—other than to learn from past mistakes and try to make amends for any offenses I may have committed—and I’m just too tired to worry too much about the future. I find myself singing the old Doris Day song in my head, “Que sera sera, whatever will be will be….”
