I’m showing up for expression, for 100 days. Will you join me?

I’ve decided to take part in the Elle Luna-inspired #The100DayProject, and this is an invitation to join me.

What is #The100DayProject?

“It’s a celebration of process that encourages everyone to participate in 100 days of making. The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. It’s not about fetishizing finished products — it’s about the process.”

Will you join me?

Will you devote (as much of) yourself (as you can) to 100 days of making? For the delight of dancing with expression, and the joy of coming alive. Because, as I recently wrote in a Facebook post: “Expression is obsessive… about you… coming alive and being fully self-expressed. So she’ll pull and tug and call and keep pointing the way, until you listen and come alive, or you don’t and you die – whichever happens first. I think dying is probably a lot easier. But I’d rather make the harder choice and be alive while I live. Wouldn’t you?”

How do I do it?

You pick the form of expression you’d like to show up for, every day for the next 100 days. Like…

A kitchen (or parking lot) dance break, every day for the next 100 days.
A gratitude list, every day for the next 100 days.
One minute of crochet, every day for the next 100 days.
One poem or song or piece of writing, every day for the next 100 days.
A meaningful hug, every day for the next 100 days.
One photo of flowers or faces or sunsets or other beauty, every day for the next 100 days.
A straw-blown painting, every day for the next 100 days. (This is the one I’m showing up for.)
Any form of expression that you’d like to show up for, every day for the next 100 days.

And then, you show up and do that, every day for the next 100 days.

You can document and share your daily expressions of 100 on Instagram (or other social media), using the hashtag #The100DayProject, plus a unique hashtag for your personal project that begins #100Daysof____ (for me, that’s going to be #100DaysofPaintAndStraw)

When do I start?

The challenge is “officially” over, and I’m doing it anyway, starting today. I’m going to paint 100 pieces of straw-blown art. To build my capacity to shut up and show up for my own expression, and to begin building a body of work. But mostly, because I must, I must, I simply must express. We all must.

I’ll be sharing my 100 days of making here: on Instagram and on Facebook. Stop by.
