Can you believe 2018 is almost over?
It flew by for me, what about you?
Take a deep breath and ask yourself…
How do I want to feel in 2019?
Starting right now and moving forward?
I want 2019 to be a transformational year. As most of you know, I am currently enrolled in a three-year Practitioners Training program to become a Therapeutic Counselor with Clearmind. I’ve started to peel off layers of myself and look at my beliefs and the different ideas about myself I created early in my life. I want to keep growing into the person I want to be and my goal for this first year of my program is to remain peaceful and centered.
New Years resolutions are great opportunities to write down intentions and goals for the upcoming year. I love making resolutions and every year I refine my process a little bit more. Last year I found Core Desire Feeling program by Danielle Laporte and it really inspired me. Danielle taught me that:
“Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have.”
If you don’t know how to start, pick the 3 areas of your life that are the most important to you; (for example: relationship, work, health…) and then pick a feeling for each area of life. That will be your 3 Core Desired Feelings for the New Year.
Taking the time to choose your Core Desire Feeling will helps you align with how you want to feel. Setting this intention is powerful and important to have clear direction of where you want to go into your life. Choose how you want to feel, and move in the direction of it. You can also set your goals around your Core Desire Feeling. I also like to remind myself of my core desire feeling on a daily base, like a mantra. It can help you to make clearer decisions and to return to your center.
These are my three Core Desired Feelings:
To feel free, happy and playful. Being easygoing, cheerful, optimistic and hopeful.
Feeling affection and tenderness. The act of love is when you care about other people happiness, safety, and health, because you truly want the best for them. Love is a very selfless act; love is giving away the last piece of cake, no matter how much you want it, love is giving your whole self and not holding back, love is commitment, love is that tingly feeling you get and you don’t know why, love is looking forward to waking up early in the morning, making yourself vulnerable to someone, to share experiences, pleasures, problems and pain. Love is the deepest level of emotional connection between people.
Vibrant and Alive! (Okay, I cheated and had more than three!)
Filled with energy, glowing, healthy.
After I chose my Core Desire Feelings, I wrote down my intentions. These are intentions for what I want more of in my life in 2019.
This list are a reminder to guide me throughout 2019.
- Be present
