This year something strange happened. I am usually a big fan of looking back, reflecting on successes and learnings and then planning for a year ahead. A very organised, Type A personality approach. This year I did not feel like it.
Originally I thought that the emptiness practice got me to the ‘what’s the point’ point. But then I read Gabby Bernstein’s “Have Fun Along the Way to Achieving Your Goals and You’ll Attract Support from the Universe” and it dawned on me:
We always ask ourselves, “Where do I want to be?” Instead, we should be asking, “How do I want to feel?”
Yes! I want to feel like I felt when I was in my 20s – that anything is possible and the world is a wondrous, abundant place full of adventure! Back then I was a tornado of energy and had fun whatever I did. Where did that mindset go?
So making sure I maximise joy and fun is my main goal this year. No usual planning, fretting and worrying – bring on positive, open minded thinking, always expecting the best, prioritising joy, play and having fun!
