The next step in my happiness project is discovering and writing down my aims.
On Gretchen Rubin’s website she writes the next four lines:
What makes you feel good? What gives you joy, energy, fun?
What makes you feel bad? What brings you anger, guilt, boredom, dread?
What makes you feel right? What values do you want your life to reflect?
How can you build an atmosphere of growth—where you learn, explore, build, teach, help?
What makes Robyn feel good?
- Exercising once a day
- Drinking coffee in the morning and tea at night
- A great phone conversation catching up with a friend
- Cheesy text messages
- Reading quotes that touch me
- Finishing a challenging project at work
- Writing and publishing a blog
- Planning and going on a trip
- Laughing with girl friends til my stomach hurts
- Reading a great book
- Hugs from my family
What makes Robyn feel bad?
- Losing touch with friends
- Feeling insecure about relationships
- Not drinking enough water
- Being late or unprepared for meetings
- Playing political games at work
- Eating dairy (oh I love cheese & ice cream!)
- Thinking of broken heart moments
What makes you feel right?
- Praying and doing a daily devotional
- I want my life to reflect giving, caring and loving principles
- Going for a great run
- I want my life to reflect a strong woman who is human but tackles challenges left, right & centre
- I want my life to impact at least one person in a positive way
I will build an atmosphere of growth by reading at least one new book a month that challenges me to learn and think.
I will build an atmosphere of growth where my travel in the future pushes me out of my comfort zones to explore.
I will build an atmosphere of growth where my words and actions only build others up.
I will build an atmosphere of growth where I share my tips, tricks, knowledge & wisdom to teach others how to take control of health & fitness in their lives.
I will build an atmosphere of growth where I try and help anyone that reaches out to me.
