Five Simple Things Project Overview

Here is an overview of our Five Simple Things project. This post provides links to pertinent aspects of this project, so that you won’t have to sift through the archives to find out what you want to know.

If you would like to try this project for yourself, you can start on Day One: Let’s Get Started, and then continue on thru to the last day: A Look Back, posting your thoughts, ideas, results, joys and disappointments as you go. This is an active blog, and if you post, we will notice and reply… and give you the benefit of our own experience and our support if it seems pertinent or appropriate.

There is a post for feedback on this project, which can be found here: A Look Back. This is usually an active blog, and if you post, we will notice and reply… and give you the benefit of our own experience and our support if it seems pertinent or appropriate.

This project spawned two image galleries.

Here is complete listing of the daily posts for the Five Simple Things project:

I also just want to say thank you to everyone who participated. This was one of my favorite projects, and I would never have followed through with it if it wasn’t for those of you who read my posts, and worked the project along with me. So… Thank you! Merci! Gracias!

The Five Simple Things Gallery

When we come to the end of a project, I always like to include a gallery of all the images I used to illustrate or decorate each post. Sometimes, pictures really do speak louder than words. Each of these images is linked to the post in which it was shared, so this is also an easy way to navigate this particular project. Also, they are loaded in random order, because I think its more interesting.

Because I made so many stickers this time around, I have given them their own separate gallery. Here they are, feel free to download and share:

Oh my!
Wow!
That’s a lot of stickers!

I know, right? I had way too much fun making them. Obviously! We also have a photo gallery of a bunch of other lists of five things, which can be found here: More Five Things. It’s pretty cool as well. Lots of good stuff there.

Go! Explore! Enjoy!

A Look Back

Sadly, it looks like our Five Simple Things project is coming to the end of our 30 days. Now it’s time to take a look back and make note of what happened as we worked the project. Here are a few questions to get the ball rolling:

  • Did you enjoy this project?
  • What was your favorite part?
  • Do you think you will continue with one or more of the five simple things?
  • Has your life changed in any way in the last 30 days?
  • Any insights or comments you’d like to share?

Your comments are deeply appreciated, and might be really helpful for anyone who happens to stumble into this small room on the world wide web. So, please, don’t be shy… You don’t need to put your email into the comment boxes. You don’t even have to give your name. I purposely made it super easy to put your two cents in. So, come on guys, set the comments section on fire.

Acts Of Intention

So, yesterday’s words of power, brought me to today’s Acts of Intention because as I was going through my day being powerful and commanding I realized that each of my words of power were followed up with decisive action. When I got into my car and commanded it to take me to the grocery store, I wasn’t magickally transported to the store…. No. It required multiple words of power and acts of intention. I turned the key and said, “Engine On.” I pulled out of the driveway and said, “And Now I Ride.”

But what if I had done what I so often do when I want my life to go in a particular direction? What if I had hesitated in front of my car and conjured up all kind of doubts and angst? I might have said stuff like:

  • What if the car door won’t open?
  • What will I do if my car won’t start?
  • The tires are probably flat, are they flat? Probably.
  • Who would I call if the car won’t start?
  • And what could they do?
  • Would anyone even care?
  • Is help for one such as me even available?
  • And supposing the car does start, what then?
  • Do I have enough gas to go anywhere?
  • What if I don’t have enough gas?
  • What if I run out of gas?
  • Then what?
  • I call someone?
  • But what if I run out of gas somewhere and my phone is dead?
  • What if my phone isn’t dead but there’s no signal?
  • What if a serial killer stops to “help” me?
  • And supposing I do have enough gas, what if my car breaks down?
  • What if I have a flat tire?
  • What if I get lost?
  • Do I even know the way to the store?
  • And when I get there, assuming I don’t get lost, then what?
  • What if someone in the store throws a fit about masks and starts throwing things around?
  • What if they throw things at me?
  • What if I throw things back at them?
  • And the cops come?
  • Then what?
  • Will someone get shot?
  • Will I end up in jail?

I could go on and on and on with this… And it’s fun, but it’s also ridiculous. I expect my car will start, and I expect that I can go to the store, and I expect that it will all work out fine. Why? Because it usually does. And those rare times when it all goes south, I have somehow managed to muddle through.

So, the moral of the story is. Words of power, followed by decisive acts of intention… that’s real magick. That’s how we get through life. That’s how we follow through on our Five Simple Things. That’s how we don’t get mired down in doubt and angst and ridiculousness.

Words Of Power

This morning I was thinking about our project. We are experimenting with using every day tasks in slightly different ways with the intention of creating positive change for ourselves. And it occurred to me that our words and actions have more power when we believe them to be true. So I thought… OK… what if every ordinary thing I did could be used to enhance my belief in my words and actions? What would that look like?

And VOILA! I had a brilliant idea.

What if, when I turned on a light switch, I said “Let there be light!” and when the light came on, I said, “And there was light!” What if, when I turned on a faucet, I said “Water come forth!” And Boom! Water comes forth! What if when I poured my coffee, I said, “My cup is filled.”

So this morning, I went around my house engaging in words and acts of power. It was quite illuminating, interesting, and I have to say, it really feels good! I command words on the page to appear and look! Here they are! So fun! You should try it!
