SPARK Day 3: Explore

Spark Jan 2014

The cornerstone to an intentional life is really knowing who you are and what you want to offer the world and understanding how to get there.  Sometimes, we think by the basis of our age that we should know everything there is to know about ourselves, but we are constantly changing and, if we are busy, it could be that we aren’t getting quiet enough to discover the newest truths about ourselves and embrace what they mean for our lives.

Every Wednesday during SPARK, I will be posing a series of questions (usually around 10, some open-ended and some sentence stems where you just finish the sentence) for you to complete, all with the goal of enhancing your self-awareness so that you can proactively and powerfully live with intention and infuse your life with the feelings and experiences you most wish to have.

As Mary Anne Radmacher says, writing is the process one follows to learn what is already known deep within.  So, grab a notebook and pen or your favorite writing app/program on your phone, tablet, or computer, a little something to drink, and answer these questions honestly and completely.  Your answers can bring delight, insight, inspiration and more…

What is your hope or intention for 2014?

What is your overall vision for your life?  What do you hope to see for yourself at the end of this year?  Five years from now?  Twenty years from now?

What are your greatest concerns right now?  Why do these concerns exist?  What can you do about them?

What are three to five words you would use to describe yourself?

What motivates you?

I am inspired by…

I most need…

I am getting better at…

My gift is…

What I love about my life is… 

What did you discover in answering these questions?   Share at least one of your answers here so we can cheer for and support you!

    Hi Rosie, googled making master lists and found you! Just at the right time – so am doing this – as a Buddhist I am just approaching my new year (March 2nd is Losar or the Tibetan new year). For this year of the wood horse I have decided to do your wonderful SPARK – these ten days before the new year are called the dons – kind of the pms of the world and it is good to set intentions and get one’s house in order! I find myself living in Labrador (moved here for ten months mid-October). I’m a psychotherapist and a writer so was excited to be able to focus on the second given that I can’t do too much with the first here. Of course it always brings up copious amounts of shite when one has a LOT of time with nothing urgent to do. This exercise allowed me to go fearlessly into my irresponsible ways with money and structure in my life. I hope to shed those patterns so that my creativity will not be hampered by destructive habits. Thanks.
