Creating Sustainable Personal Transformations
In late 2020, I received a DM from a family friend who said:
I wanted to give you a shout, show you my gratitude, for a stepping stone that you have inadvertently thrown me.
I’ve been listening to your podcasts, enjoying hearing how people ‘do better for themselves’.
This led me to other podcasts, and finally to one called ‘How I Quit Alcohol’.
I am resonating with so many aspects in this podcast and it has led me to make the decision
to give up alcohol for 12 months! I’m excited! I figured telling you would keep me more accountable.
I’m viewing it as a gift to myself for my 50th year, so thank you. LR xo
It got me thinking. In her Year of Champagne (a term coined by one of my clients) she was giving up something that I suspect has been in her life for the better part of 30 years. I wondered if I could do something too?
I sat on it for a few weeks, allowing it to play in my mind and then I sat down on New Years Eve 2021 and asked myself, ‘what’s one thing, that if you did it for 365 days, would make the biggest difference in your life?’ You can read all about the answer to that question here: Project 21.
Not knowing if I could even get through 2 weeks, let alone 365 days, I took it one day at a time and met the challenges that came up with curiosity and wonder (and yes chocolate cravings too!)
In September 2021, we were away and I was 9 months into Project 21, wondering what I’d do for 2022. I started journaling and Project 22 was born.
In September 2022, I started to prepare for my Project 23. During the year I’d changed my podcast’s name to My Soul Life with Susan Scollen, and I got to wondering what My Soul Life was and if I was going to ‘walk my talk’ then what did it look like? What did I want to create?
I went on this wonky journey of tapping into my intuition and letting it guide me – and it’s been really wonky and scary, but amazing too!
Now, as I write this in September 24, my new project has come to me and it’s all about my Lungs. My lung issue has been with me in some form or another since 2011. I’ve worked on it a LOT this year, but there is more work to be done so it’s time to dedicate a year to multidimensional healing and getting uncomfortable.
Enjoy reading my personal experiments and hopefully the inspire you to go on your journey, whatever that looks like for you.
Love Susan xo
PS. If you decided to go on your own journey, I’d love you to share it with me by tagging me on it and using the relevant handle e.g. #project22 (project and year)
