I was needing some grounding recently and while that can sometimes come with big swatches of time spent outside (the great outdoors have always given me some great perspective), the weather has made that hard so I went to my other big outlet– paper. Want to take a few minutes to gather your thoughts? Try this little journaling exercise I outlined for myself. Ready? Grab some paper and pen, find a quiet spot, and settle down to reflect on these questions. You might just find that this quiet contemplation gives you the insight you need to push your way forward.
What has brought you joy lately?What has been hard?What do you want more of in your life?What do you want less of in your life?What is your wish for yourself?How can you begin to realize it?
Self-awareness is one of the most powerful tools you can have. Giving ourselves the time to reflect is a powerful strategy for success. Allow yourself the quiet and time to reflect and plan for what is next. You know what you need and want. You have your answers. Sometimes, all we need is to ask ourselves the questions and give ourselves the room to answer.
