Go do something you love.
I don’t normally start off my blogs just telling you to do something. But I can’t help it, this one is worth it.
The next 6 blogs, I’m going to take you on a journey that leads you into the new year in a very different way. I think you’ll like it, maybe even love it. Please play along.
Humans are creatures who do, so you need to start by doing something you love to do.
It doesn’t have to be the thing you love MOST, just something you love.
I want you to feel the feeling.
Smell it, taste it.
Immerse yourself in it.
How do you feel?
How do you feel in your body?
What colors do you see?
Connect as viscerally as you possibly can, take as many mental notes as you can, because I want you to remember what it feels like to be doing something you love to do. Memorize that feeling.
Now, pick one of the facets of the experience as your reminder. It can be a word, a color, a smell, a taste, a temperature, a sound – anything. When you think of that 1 thing, I want you to remember the feeling. Practice it now – think of the thing, feel the feeling.
That 1 thing is your talisman.
During this week leading up to Thanksgiving, I ask you to pull out your talisman at least one time a day, so that you can invoke that feeling.
So what does it feel like? Pretty awesome, right? The only downside might be that you want to feel like that more often. Spoiler alert. You can.
I’m going to take you into the end of the year and out the other side in a new way. I will explain it all in next week’s tapas. Until then, just practice basking in what it feels like to be doing something that you love to do.
And remember: in all things – progress, not perfection!
Love and light, Maggie
