The first day, a fresh start, new perspective. What does one start with?
Coffee, one always start with coffee!
Today is the start of this journey, the journey to find me, to find happiness, to achieve health. It’s a bit overwhelming but a deadline has been set, goals have been made, commitments have been signed. So let’s start, let’s go! I can’t wait to see what this year will bring to my life.
Set a deadline!
Everyone keeps telling me (and you I’m sure) to set a deadline, if a deadline is not set then the project/task/mission in life has a tendency to fizzle out or be postponed to a later date when it “works better for me”. A deadline also creates a useful timeline which shows you how far you have come and what you have achieved over a week/month/quarter or whatever deadline you have chosen.
So, I have a deadline of 365 days. A year. That a good stretch of time, enough time to do almost anything some would say. So what is it that I want to do and how will I achieve it?
I want to become happy. Like millions around the globe. But what do I mean by that?
I want to feel happy in my body, feel happy with where I am in life, laugh, cry, root myself in what it is that is me. I want to somehow magically create a year full of revelations that unlocks me and that in itself stops me from when getting old saying I wish I had..
Is it possible? In a year? It feels like an ocean of time, but then again, the moment you blink a lifetime has passed by.. so better get started!
To kickstart this journey I will start with myself, it seems like the best place to start when you want to change your own life. I never really asked myself the “Who am I and what is the purpose of life” type of questions that almost all ask themselves in their teenage years. It probably would have been better if I had asked myself those questions, maybe I would have it all figured out by now. But here we are and now seems to be the time for me to ask myself these questions, or similar questions in order to find out what makes me Me.
The task for the week is: Who am I?
