Getting what you want
You can’t get what you want if you don’t know what you want…
And yet, so many of us don’t know what we want out of life.
We know we want more, but what exactly is more?
I know what it is like – I feel like I spent the first 40 years of my life not knowing what I wanted.
From little things, like what to choose from a menu (just ask my husband how long I take to decide) …. to big things, like what I wanted to study at University. In fact, I changed my mind two weeks into studying Social Work and hopped on over to Industrial Psychology.
Part of this indecision is who I am – it is part of my make-up; but the more I learn, the more I realize that I’m done with being indecisive.
I’m done with being unclear.
I’m done with feeling uncertain or feeling foggy.
Because it’s not a lekker feeling.
How can I ever get what I want if I don’t know what I want?
Around about two years ago, I crossed paths with the magical Donna McCallum (aka The Fairy Godmother). She teaches people all the world to live out their dreams.
It was such a relief to finally tap into what it is I truly want – to tap into who I am and to start dreaming.
The dream-mapping and goal setting workshop by Donna, which I now teach to others, was life-changing.
Life-changing … meaning it literally changed the trajectory of my life.
From going around in circles, trying so hard to work out my life’s purpose…. to moving forward, feeling inspired and alive.
And this positive change was all down to the fact that I was (at the tender age of 40) finally in touch with what I want out of life.
I am so grateful to be living out a life filled with purpose and passion.
To feel clear and focused.
To receive inspiration.
To be filled with energy.
Of course, life is a work in progress – and it’s something I work on daily (hence my Morning Practice Journey’s), but knowing what I want is key.
And the beautiful thing is I can keep dreaming.
Dreams are not static.
They can shift and change and morph into magical journey’s. This is what makes me tick … what fills me with joy and excitement … dreaming!!!
And now, I ask you, do you know what you want out of life?
If yes, YAY!!!! Keep Dreaming and shooting for the stars.
If no, I invite you to start dreaming.
Here are a few tips:
1. Set your intention to get clarity about what you truly want (your soul aligned desires).
(If you have followed me for a while, you will know that I often talk about the importance of setting intentions. They are extremely powerful).
2. As you go to bed tonight, ask for clarity and inspiration. If you don’t know what you want, ask to find out what it is you want. It can be that simple.
3. Start Journalling: If you have tried to journal before and have hit a blank, start by writing down three good things that happened to you in the last 24 hours. That’s it. The more you write, the more you will receive clarity.
4. Do something that makes your soul sing: Do one thing that lights up your soul every day. Just one thing. From sitting in your garden to kissing your kids, to lying in the sun, to painting, to going for a walk. ANYTHING that makes you happy. The more happy you are, the more happiness will flow into your life. Simple.
And of course, you are always welcome to work with me personally. I would love to help you tap into your soul and step into your truth … just email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you are ready to move forward.
As always, big beautiful magical love to you
