Here I am, feeling challenged amidst my challenges.  Have I bitten off more than I can chew?  They are not ‘musts’, life or death situations.  They are challenges I have signed up to give me goals, inspirations and structure for my posts and writing.  If I leave it to time or inclination, you know what will happen – nothing.  And so, I have signed up for #aprillove with Susannah Conway, April Moon with Kat McNally, and Ultimate Blog Challenge .

IMG_2503I am really loving the prompts and loving coming from these sources.  Keeping up is not easy, but it is not hard either if I don’t let my thoughts intrude and if I stop thinking in scarcity of time.  They rob me of creativity and mire me in STUCK.  I am not behind.  I am forging ahead the best I can.  I have to embrace the good and bad, the yin and the yang.  I love the day and the night.  What am I but one dimensional without my shadow? It will be good if I can accept and embrace my dark side. I am me, myself and I. Wherever I go, they and my shadow also go.

Cia, goodbye past, I am writing the next chapter, a new story of my life.  You no longer work.  And now I am free of fear of uncertainty, of the dark, of the shadows within myself.  I can breathe now and let me, myself and I out completely.  I am singing in the rain, dancing in sunshine.  Oh let those clouds come by.  I am not afraid.  I am kissed by sunshine, held in shadow.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    I love it Lily. I too can sometimes overwhelm myself by trying to keep up with all the challenges, but you have such a sensible attitude towards it all I’m sure you’ll succeed. I love your response. Here’s to more sunshine. xx
