I’ve been ruminating on why The Saboteurs and the Resistance have been so active of late and I realised that some of it’s because I’m bored. Not just bored as in “everything’s in other people’s hands now” bored , but bored as in “where’s my next big challenge?” bored.
I’m doing something that stretches me every day, but the stretches are starting to feel too easy and I can feel myself becoming a bit complacent.
So yesterday I decided to follow up on my naked photo shoot experience from last year. That was a REAL challenge and was amazingly empowering. My relationship with my body and how I feel about myself generally has completely changed since then, and I’ve decided to capitalise on that – so next Tuesday evening I’m going to a local art school to pose – in the nude – as a Life Model.
Today it feels exciting but not quite challenging enough – I’ll let you know next week how it feels on the night!!
So I’ve pondering on what other challenges to give myself – and then I thought I’d ask YOU what challenges YOU’D like me to undertake and then write about…that’s right, from now on, My Fear is in Your Hands!
Here’s what I’m looking for:
- challenges that will test and stretch me
- challenges that will allow me to write about my experiences in a way that will be helpful for you to read about
- challenges that will inspire you to challenge yourself and face some of your fears and gremlins
Here’s what I don’t want:
- suggestions for things that are going to cost lots of money
Please give me your challenges here – I’ll rate them out of 5 for how much of a challenge they feel to me (where 1 is “I do that sort of thing every day” and 5 is “Holy Shit I could NEVER do THAT!!! Oh…OK then…if I must…”) and then take them one at a time…
I can already feel the adrenaline starting to flow and I haven’t even published this yet – what on EARTH have I let myself in for?!
