"I need to let go of the idea that exhaustion is okay, and put more effort into receiving adequate sleep and increasing time for self care." - andrea mcdonald
In a world that is constantly pulling you in what seems to be hundreds of different directions every day, what do you do to stay true to your own goals and ambitions? We are often told that we need to sit down and set weekly or monthly goals for ourselves to keep grounded, but sometimes that’s just not fun, and can often become defeating! To ensure that this does not happen to me, I am always looking for fun ways to do a little self reflection and self motivation. I stumbled across this challenge and thought it would be the perfect one to share as we end 2018.
For the past 30 days, I have been asking myself a meaningful inquisitive question every single day. I first took a few minutes to reflect on the question in my mind, and then I took a few minutes to record my thoughts in a journal. While these questions may not necessarily have been related to traditional goals, they were food for thought, and something that I otherwise probably would have never taken the time to think about.
My challenge to you is to do the same for the next 30 days. If you miss a day, don’t stress, we’re all human, but then do your best to get back on track and continue the practice. If your results are anything like mine were, you will quickly realize that not only did you develop a new goal and ambition list, but you will have developed an accumulation of entries with much deeper meaning than when you are forced to organically create a goals list.
To get you started, and to learn a little bit about me, I have decided to vulnerably and honestly share with you seven (one full week) of my entries from the past month.
Enjoy my reflections, and cheers to the beginning of your own reflections and growth. Choose to end 2018 by diving more into your intellect, heart, spirit, and core.
If you would like to embark on your own self-reflection journey, here are questions, challenges, and lists that you can use exactly or pick your own questions from.
