It’s good to be back. Alright, how are you liking the simplified version on the worksheet? I realize this is an evolving process, but my hope is that eventually we can come up with a system that feels most fulfilling and fluid for all of us. As that’s the goal with all of this, really!
How did last week go? Did the questions sit well? I find that even if I give myself time to just sit with them instead of write, I can feel the benefits. Or I can begin to answer them subconsciously as I go throughout my day and week.
If you’ve landed on a few guiding words or a phrase for this coming year, and you feel comfortable doing so, do share it within our Facebook group! I’d love to hear from you as well as give ourselves reason to hold each other accountable for checking in with ourselves.
Alright, so this week, we go over things like expectations, the overwhelm that happens when we’re not listening to our gut (intuition, whatever you wish to call it), creating from a place of fear, taking everything we hope to do and piling it up into an impossibly big expectation, and how we can begin to separate it out, soon creating bite sized pieces that are attainable and not potentially anxiety-producing and seemingly impossible feeling.
There are an endless and not overwhelming amount of things we can do right now to take steps towards our goal, and sometimes that even means taking a step back and reevaluating (as I mentioned last week), making sure that the things that we’re doing are in line with what we know to be true. With what fills us up most.
And it helps to start with establishing practices that nature and promote less not more. That allow you to be filled to the brim with gratitude with where you are, while still taking actionable steps towards what you deserve.
Because there’s no goal that you cannot reach or place you are too sick to travel to. It’s all right there, we just have to pin point what we can do right now to make them happen, whether that be two weeks or two years from now, it’s never too early to begin making it feel more possible and attainable.
Here are a few questions that can help to bring us closer to those things:
What are three things that you’ve always dreamed of doing but have written off as unattainable? Listen to your gut, how can you begin to make room for them?
Think of a time when you listened to your intuition and something really incredible happened because of or in wake of it. How did you feel? Get descriptive if you can!
How do you best listen to yourself? Is it while doing a specific activity, pulling from outside inspiration to spark something within, or being quiet? It could be anything at all.
Do you notice if there are similarities in when you begin to feel overwhelmed? What are you doing, thinking, saying? How can you divert before emotions spiral?
What are three things that make you more than?
