Honing in on the Dream

What does your ideal day look like?

Most motivational books I’ve read and people I’ve listened to, ask this question. For the longest time I thought I had a rough idea of what I would like to do for the next 30 years at least, before retiring and doing what I ACTUALLY wanted to do. So I guess, it wasn’t really the correct answer to the question in the first place.

What I should have been doing is thinking about what I would like to be doing with my time if I could retire NOW. That’s where the sugar is. Except for just as long, I didn’t really know what that was either, not the nuts and bolts of every day anyway, up until recently.

Picture this…

Waking up to a large, warm and sunny yoga studio, flooded with light. I would spend my morning practising and teaching yoga, and meditating in the morning light.

The remainder of the day would be spent researching design inspiration, and creating amazing pieces in the sunny workroom attached to the yoga studio.

The night would be spent making music, eating good food with my favourite people, and perhaps a good glass of the red stuff.

All very romantic I know… I know in practice it wouldn’t be all as easy and breezy as it sounds! but I’ll be damned if I’m just going to wait until I’m in my 60’s to have it!

Now that I know what I want, and can just about feel that warm morning sun on my face I don’t want to wait!

I am of course still very amateur in all 3 of the areas which I plan to take up my time with, which is an obstacle in itself because I don’t know enough about either of them to jump into a career in a particular area so it will take time to gain the skills (and the funds) I need around my day-job, but hey, this is progress!

Time to re-focus and hone-in on those dreams!

I’d love to hear what your answer would be? ♥

Purpose and puzzles

There are lots of reasons as to why I work so hard, why I do the things I do,and why I want to do them.

But I also feel like a have a bigger underlying ‘why’ for everything I do, and I struggle to put it into words. It’s a feeling, a primal pull, a gut instinct, but I do wish I could put it into better words.

Sometimes it feels like I’m walking around in the darkness with a mysterious object in my hands, something I found along the way, but I can’t quite remember where, or maybe I always had it.

It feels like I’m walking around in the darkness, trying to feel this object and figure out what it is, while also just trying to survive in a world where I can’t see anything.

Each step gets me closer, but it drives me crazy! Can anyone relate?

Stay curious,

Day 55: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado

Other than training for a new area in my volunteer job, and a quick meal and catch up with friends who have either just returned from travelling, or are just about to, it was a fairly typical Sunday.

I did however come to some sort of conclusion about a few questions I had been asking myself about my goals, and the direction I am taking.

I call it my “monthly crisis” (although not entirely accurate as it’s not necessarily that often!) I find that every now and then I feel like I have to sort of “evaluate” what I’m doing and more importantly, why I’m doing it, to make sure I’m doing as much as I can do achieve what really matters most, and that those things still matter most to me. Sometimes I can sort out these little niggles quite quickly, other times it can take a few days of pondering and researching a few things.

A pretty good example of this is “What’s Your Life Purpose Question Tag” video I uploaded a few months ago! I try and ask myself different questions from all different angles and see if I still come out with the same answers, and sometimes, I actually come out with new ideas and methods to achieve the same things! It just keeps me fresh and completely sold on what I’m doing.

I can confirm that I am firmly on track, and still running in the same direction, but still have plenty more track to run! Gotta keep pushing forward.

I hope you’re going out to smash your goals today!
