The tasks for these two days are related and revolve around reflection. So I’ll get right to it.
This exercise was meant to make me attract abundance to myself but I ended up with the conclusion that I’ve already done that. It was a reminder of the goals I set in the past, my mistakes and the progress I’ve made. It was also a reminder of the support and privilege that I have backing me.
Over the past couple of days, I realized that in this world where progress is considered essential, we spend too much time trying to be something that we don’t look into who we are. Yes, progress towards ones goals is an important part of life, but that isn’t what life is limited to. In the end, there is no grand prize for productivity and taking an hour or two of your day to indulge in things that make you happy is key to thriving. Before you pick up a book or start a new show based off this advice, what I learned wasn’t just to let loose, but to also check in with yourself.
Find what works for you by asking yourself. It’s as simple as that. Spend time conversing with yourself and tracking how you feel so as to build a better structure. I’m not talking about any sort of routine, but by structure I mean knowing where you stand and where you want to go in life as a whole. Your priorities and dreams may change and keeping track of that can help you hop from one lily pad to another. Or, you can make the one you’re standing on your new home but whatever decisions you make, talking to yourself should be the first step.
So go all out, journal your thoughts or speak to a mirror or make a Whatsapp group with yourself and spam it, whatever works for you. But don’t float about feeling helpless and lost when the hand you’re looking for is your own.
Until next time,
PS: By you, I mostly mean me. If you’d like to join, you’re welcome aboard this train with no set direction that serves heaps of hot chocolate, cake, coffee, love and encouragement. (I am too broke to buy the first two, but the others are my treat:) )
