To continue creating the life I desire, I am taking Danielle LaPorte‘s weekly prompts and instead of writing them in a private journal, I will share them here each week. This year I fully embrace the idea that “there is no need to be perfect to inspire others; let others get inspiration by how you deal with your imperfections.” You will find plenty!
Feel free to join me!
WEEK 05: With your Core Desired Feelings at the top of your mind, what can you put on your STOP DOING list? What’s not serving you anymore? Start small with one thing that you want to stop doing for the next week. What new space does that open up in your life?
I want to STOP checking social media – specifically (non-classroom) Facebook – every time I sit down to work on my computer. I think I might have to remove it and have sites available only on my phone. I hope that this will open space for more productivity and less wasted time. If I’m going to take time to read I’d rather it be a good book!
Now, just in case you think this is the only thing I could think of to add to my stop doing list, let me assure you I had plenty of choices: stop being unproductive/lazy, stop overspending, stop second guessing myself, stop making assumptions (past behaviour does not always predict current or future choices), stop drinking my calories, stop complaining (because past behaviour can sometimes predict current behaviour), stop playing and thinking small, stop doing anything that does not serve my highest good or that of my children, stop focusing on the past and future, stop skipping things that I know are good for me (meditation, workouts, walks), stop thinking opinions of others is truth, stop trying to solve problems that aren’t mine (not my pig, not my farm), stop staying inside all day, stop multi-tasking … and the list goes on!
POSITIVE DECLARATION OF THE WEEK: I say No when I mean No.
