I’m sure you’re wondering what that is, what that means and why we should care about it, right?
Well, before I get to all of that, I want to tell you that lately I have felt stuck.
Between aspects of my career, my health, my goals, relationships and my fitness. There’s many details I could dive into more for each of those but I’ll save that for another day, the point being, I just felt stuck.
After several conversations with friends, personal research, time meditating and journaling, I finally hit my breaking point over the weekend and did something about it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been taking a lot of action lately but it was time for another decision and so I jumped in. (More details on that later.)
Tuesday morning I woke up, a bit groggy and wishing I’d had more sleep. A part of me wanted to turn off my alarm and roll back over for another couple hours of sleep, but I had a long day ahead of me with both jobs and knew the only way I would make it through was if I got up and went to yoga as planned. So I did.
Early in class, right as we’re getting ready to set an intention, the instructor makes a comment about setting that intention and having a good day. So what did I make my intention?
“Today will be a good day.”
I set my attitude before I was even awake enough to have a negative thought. And you know what? It worked!
These legs were sore through this morning's yoga practice but at the same tome they were strong and didn't let me down. Even through tough times, these legs carry me around and for that I am grateful. Someday, we will all look back and see how the struggles, the challenges and the lessons were worth it all. Have a great day, my friends!
I came home from yoga and was posting to Instagram. I was figuring out a few hashtags to use and came up with one that hit me like a ton of bricks. It was weird but it left this impression on me and I made a mental note to see how I felt about it later on.
Sure enough, later while at work, I was just as inspired by it and texted a couple friends about it. Their reactions were amazing and next thing I knew, I was taking notes on a piece of yellow legal paper to bring home with me. I ripped it out, folded it up and got ready to put it in a safe place for later when it hit me. This was my “Inspired To-Do List.”
It was full of things I wanted to do, needed to meditate and journal over, sleep on, etc, but it all came from a place of inspiration, desire and empowerment. Was this that feeling I had been needing and was looking for?
I’m the girl with a to-do list that’s a mile long (or so it feels) and it’s really never ending. Just as I cross things off, I add more, so why is this any different?
Because it came from that moment of inspiration and went directly to a moment of empowerment. It might sound weird or strange, but I found it to be this major breakthrough and one worth sharing and taking note.
