Now, 5 months and 259.5 hours of chanting later, I come to the last few pages of the little booklet. The Neurotic Me drove me to chant 9.75 hours on August 31 just so I could fill in the first page.
But it looks like I won’t finish this booklet in January and the Neurotic Me realizes I am not going to finish the booklet in 6 days, unless I chant 6.75 hours ever day!
While that’s doable, I don’t know if I see that happening. And it’s ok if a few hours in February spill into the register.
Today also marks the end of my 90 Day Challenge, which didn’t come into fruition, but my heart wasn’t 100% in it anyway ( for those who are curious, 90 days ago I was inspired to chant for a “lofty goal,” and the loftiest goal I could think of was that Puritan Witch rose to Amazon’s Top 10 Bestseller list on or before today. It hasn’t. It’s currently #968,062). I wrote my trilogy to fulfill a lifelong dream, not for money or notoriety.
But I enjoy chanting and I understand the theory behind it, and so, despite the strong likelihood of not finishing my little chanting register on January 31, I will, in earnest, start a NEW 90 day challenge for something far more personal and important.
As luck would have it, I was gifted with yet another chanting register, so I will begin this new campaign today and report back April 24th! I’ll have celebrated my 55th birthday by then, and we’ll be well into Springtime, the time for new beginnings!
