So it’s the second day into my week challenge of going to bed at 21.15 and getting up at 04.30. It’s nothing I haven’t done before, but I’ve slipped a bit on it the last month. But the biggest thing that’s new with this challenge, is that I need to allocate the two first hours to personal projects. So far, damn – what a difference. This morning I actually got up at four and worked in a great flow state up till running off to work at 09,30. AWESOME MORNING! And coming home from work now, I’m going to give myself some slack since I’ve already done the “musts”.
Routine #1 – Daily Fear Facing
Been fasting today, and when I do, I lose some of my capability to speak properly. Especially when it comes to English. That’s just for context.
There was a guy sitting diagonally behind me that I had seen a couple of times but hadn’t said hello yet. I felt that I-know-what-I-should-do-feeling growing within on me all day “you should say hello, you should say hello…”. But I kept ignoring myself until I was about to go home.
“Alex, you haven’t really faced any fears today. And you know it’s a fear of you to go over and introduce yourself. You know what you have to do, don’t flee your destiny”
And so I did and ended up having a NICE conversation, AND walking home feeling damn proud for my daily fear facing push.
Now I’m going to end my 20 hours fast and enjoy the heck out of it with a nice meal of way too much cabbage. Damn do I love that stuff. Over the last three days, I’ve had over 1,5 kgs. Yummy.
See you tomorrow, Fear Facer,
