December 28 – Achieve What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today. (Author: Tara Sophia Mohr)
Sometimes I’ve felt a bit repetitious responding to these reverb prompts, but I realize that’s not a bad thing. Well not for me anyway; I can’t speak for how you as a reader experience it. The thing I want most in the next year, which has come up over and over in these posts, is to leave my job. I don’t even know if I want a new one in the conventional sense. I just want out of this one.
There are a lot of things I think I’ll feel when I leave my job, including fear of what will come after. But I think the overwhelming feeling that I’ll have on the day that I walk away from that office for the last time, is a sense of incredible relief. The kind of relief you feel when you’ve been running a long, long race and you’ve finally reached the finish line and you can lie down in the grass and your only responsibility is to breathe and to be.
So in no particular order here are ten things I can think or do to make me feel that feeling:
go for a walk in a quiet place
sit and breathe
take a bath
take a long shower
find some grass and lie in it
sing along to beautiful music
bring to mind how i felt sitting next to my mother in the window that day as a child
bring to mind what it will feel like to resign
think about good things
