I’ll admit it.
I’m a junkie….
…a junkie for self-improvement and goal-setting for myself and my clients around each new year.
Rather than making my usual laundry list of don’t do this (stuff my face with sugary snacks), or do more of that (get my butt to the gym), I’m going to ONLY focus on how I want to feel.
Btw, I didn’t come up with this idea myself, I’ve been noodling around Danielle LaPorte’s idea of The Desire Map. Check it out. Good stuff.
But can’t I just THINK my way skinny??? (Unfortunately, NOPE. I’ve tried)
But what I can do…is to concentrate on the FEELING of what I want more of in 2016.
Think for a minute….
..Sit in a still place and get quiet…
What is the ONE feeling YOU want to develop for next year???
I bet when you got real still and quiet, one feeling broke through the surface and you felt the quiet sigh of YES. That’s it. THAT would be wonderful to have more of in my life.
For me, it’s confidence.
If I can develop more confidence, I will be able to be a better wife, teacher, therapist, daughter and person.
Taking this idea- I wanted to flush it out even more- to get an idea of what more confidence would look like in my life.
So I did what I do when I need some clarity- I did a sandtray.
Here it is..
Don’t worry..I’m going to let you in on my tray…take a look….
Through this exercise, I opened myself up in an effort to show you guys how going from ONE central feeling in the tray can create many unexpected solutions and a-ha moments that weren’t there before.
ALSO- for those of you who have access to your own sandtray- do this yourself.
It’s my challenge to you.
Take a picture, leave a comment, or let me know when you do this exercise for yourself.
Can’t wait to see what you all create for your 2016!
