Last week I wrote part 1 about core desired feelings.
If you missed that post, have a read here.
Today we’re taking it one step further.
Danielle had a mini-workbook-type thing somewhere on her blog/ newsletter/ I can’t remember because I print them off and don’t keep the files
There was a question in there – which three things will you do daily to create those core desired feelings in your life?
No skipping steps.
If you haven’t done so yet, get the printable at my site and do the CDF exercise first.
I took the time to really do some thinking and after scribbling away, it came down to a few key things for me:
Speak to real people (in the flesh as opposed to online relationships)
If there’s an opportunity to connect or engage with someone in real life, that will always trump online activity. E.g. if Connor wants me to go for a walk and I’m busy scrolling through Instagram, he comes first. Silly example but there you go. I’m very bad at being vulnerable and asking for help, so I added in to be brave and do those things.
I feel unaccomplished if I’m not creating something. Create (for me) means organising, photographing, writing a blog, article, book, designing a printable, cooking, baking, making memories with the kids, etc.
Be fully present
This one also talks to engagement. Be with the person in front of you – family and friends. This is a great one and one that is very easy – simply leave your phone in your handbag. I’ve been excellent at this and in so doing, forgot to take pics at about 5 or 6 socials At my birthday lunch, my one friend said to me, “I’m a bit worried that you won’t have any photos because I haven’t seen you with your camera the entire afternoon” so I quickly whipped around and took a few photos
Isn’t this fun?
Over to you.
