I know you’ve probably heard it a million and one times by now (cue groaning), but I can’t believe 2015 is gone and we’re already a week into 2016. I’m normally a crazy resolution junkie and I set like 50 resolutions and achieve zero. So this year I’m taking my resolutions way more seriously and I’m setting resolutions that will help me be the woman I want to be.
Core Desired Feelings
Last month I picked up the Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte. I’ve always wanted read it and something told me it was the perfect time. Again, you’ve probably heard this a million and one times, but that book is a life changer. It makes you get super real with yourself and pinpoint how you want to feel on the daily. At the end you will have a list of what Danielle calls your Core Desire Feelings. Once you know how you want to feel, you set goals based on those feelings.
After the process, and it’s not an easy process, I chose my Core Desired Feelings:
Shine | Giving out a bright light
I want to shine (kinda sounds like a four year-old, but I’m going with it). I want to feel my truth and gifts and share it with the world. This means taking time to really get to know myself, showing up in my business, and sharing online and off.
Shakti | Divine female energy
I want to feel feminine. I want to honor my intuition, my curviness, and my strength. I want to feel soulful and sexy. Definitely sexy.
Clarity | The quality of being clear
I’m always trying to get that moment of clarity. I want to be super clear on what I’m doing, what I want, what my goals are and how I’m going to get there.
Connected | The state of being in connection
I want to feel in touch with my soul, wants, and desires. I want to feel connected to my family and friends and with my fellow creatives are working the same hustle and grind as I am. This means being 100% present when I’m spending time with the people I care about. Reaching out to other creatives and sharing my struggles and triumphs.
Resolutions with Soul
To help me feel these awesome feelings, I chose four (not 50) resolutions for 2016:
- Show up every-damn-day.
- Get fit (cliche, but real life).
- Build my biz and earn $80,000 this year.
- Buy a house.
The list may be small, but it is super mighty. After taking this avenue to setting my resolutions, I feel more invested and excited. I definitely recommend picking up the Desire Map. No really. Go get it.
Wish me luck on 2016!
