Write, draw, scribble it out in your journal or on some index cards is always fun. Then you can lay them out on the table and see it clearly in big bold letters.
OK --- take a moment now and do it! I'll be here.
Now looking at any of those things above, of course it would be totally understandable if your life was consumed or centered around any one or multiple of those things. That is LIFE after all. We need to 'make a living.' We have elderly grandparents or parents. We have children who need us.
So when I talk about putting YOU at the Center of your life, I don't mean to be cutting out everything else altogether. It's really more of a mental shift. Yes, you can be taking care of your grandmother, and still putting in your all at work or at least looking like you are!
Your Daily 10 Minute Journaling Prompts:
Were you allowed to have your feelings when you were young? Cry, yell, demand things? Did you parents cater to your every need? Did you feel invisible or treated like you should be? Talk a bit about how it was being the little [your name here].
Day 2 - JOURNAL:
Now that you've 'grown up' what would you tell Little [your name here], if you could go back and be with her?
Can you think of anyone (a friend or someone famous) that is a good model of someone who puts themselves at the Center of their life?
Day 3 - ARTS/CRAFTS:
Let's jump to the present! Or as Pooh says,
"Ahh, TODAY. My favorite day."
Let's think about you being at the CENTER of your life. What might that look like? Feel free to get out a large piece of paper and draw a circle in the middle and lines going out to different areas of your life. Or simply write/draw in your journal. What does it mean to be at the CENTER of YOUR LIFE?
Day 4 - REST DAY
Great work! Go for a walk, grab a cuppa tea and curl up with your book at home or in a cafe. ENJOY TODAY and your amazing SELF!
Day 5 - JOURNAL:
What is one thing you would likely immediately stop doing if you were at the Center of your life? Or 3 things. Write for 10 min and see what comes out.
Day 6 -REST DAY
You can have this as a Rest Day or share with a friend! Who is someone you'd love to share this month-long journey on delving into your SELF with? Reach out to them, let them know what you're doing, share this blog post and share a couple stories over tea!
Day 7 - Congratulations!
Treat yourself to something FUN (can be topic related or not) today! And if you feel up for it, also journal 3 things you appreciate about yourself this week. SO proud of you!
