BOOK OF JUDE – Mindful Revelations

The Misogi Challenge

I am Jude. I believe that we need to be constantly challenging ourselves and embracing our personal growth. With that in mind, I decided to take on a misogi challenge.

What is misogi?

Misogi is a Japanese purification ritual that encourages individuals to do something extremely difficult once a year. The concept requires that we step out of our comfort zones, embrace the unknown and expand what we believe is possible. In doing, we discover a things about ourselves and our true potential.

Last week, I decided that my misogi would be to complete a half marathon. And with that, I registered for the Valley Harvest running event on October 7th.

Yes, you heard that right! In less than a month, I’ll be running 22 kms. It’s the longest distance I have ever attempted to run in my life.

I am quite active and walk or run 5km everyday but I am already experiencing soreness and discomfort after a couple of longer runs. I am also confronting the inevitable fears and self-doubts that accompany large or intimidating goals or aspirations.

The next couple weeks won’t be easy but I’m ready to embrace the sweat and the sore muscles. In fact, I am actually looking forward to the challenge and what I can learn from this experience.

Why am I sharing this with you?

Firstly, by publicly announcing my misogi, I’m creating an increased sense of accountability for myself. There’s no turning back now!

However, more importantly, I want to inspire YOU to consider your own misogi. It doesn’t have to be a half marathon; it can be anything that challenges you to grow and Break Free from the shackles of your self-limiting beliefs.

Identify a goal, push through boundaries, overcome obstacles, and begin realizing your dreams, one small step at a time. We can do hard things!
