As part of the life reboot process, I have to figure out a target for where I am going. Sometimes it is as simple as asking what I want more of in my life.
Deciding What You Want
I found that the best way to do this was to sit down and write everything that came into my head for 5 minutes. Some of the answers surprised me.
What I Want More Of in 2012
- Time to think
- Time to plan
- Time to create
- Nutritious food
- Cuddles with fur-beasts
The list is not the full list of what I came up with, but some of the items surprised me. Gratitude? Sleep? I hadn’t thought I was short on either, but they popped into my head.
Figuring Out How To Get This Stuff
The next task is to look at ways on how I can bring these things into my life. Nothing on my list is outside the realm of possibility; I didn’t ask for the moon.
Some of them are easy: bringing more music into my life means that I need to work it in. There are lots of times at work when I find myself distracted by the
b*tching discussions of my co-workers floating over the wall. Plugging into music can eliminate that distraction and bring more music into my life.
Some things will need me to rearrange my schedule. It’s not that I don’t have time to sleep, plan, think or create, but that they are not the first things on my list. I find myself conscious of too much time wasted on things that could be better put to use.
Some things are best brought about my a shift in consciousness. If I am aware of a desire to smile, eat nutritious food, and look for things to be grateful for, I will do them. If left to my current frantic state of unawareness, I might not.
What are things you want more of in your life in 2012? How can you bring them about? Share below.
