there are plenty of people in the world teaching about how to set goals. but have you ever taken the time to really ask yourself what you want? yes, you know what your mother wants for you, what your kids want, what your husband wants and what you should want. but what do you really want?
last week I had the pleasure of listening to a telegathering led by Dr. Christiane Northrup on this very topic. and she called the goals you set that align with what you truly value, with what YOU really want, soul goals.
and instantly, as the words were said out loud, setting goals felt differently to me. it felt much more meaningful and I was already more committed. hearing someone acknowledge that I have my own dreams was like permission to enjoy setting goals.
the call was full of good nuggets of wisdom. if you’re interested in exploring how to set goals that are in alignment with what you truly want and value, to create a life you love… give me a shout and I’ll share the link to the recorded call!
but back to my point: other than New Year’s resolutions, do you have goals? do you have things you’re working towards? do you know what you want?
I’m proud to say that right now I can answer that! for the first time ever I have 1 year, 3 year and 5 year (and hot off the press, one for 8 years) goals. I’ve written them down and described how it will look, what my days will be like, what would be different. and they’re goals I’m REALLY excited about; they’re definitely soul goals.
one more thing: as I write this a post shows up on FB that looks like this:
and I’m happy to say that I’m aiming high…real high.
what about you? are you aiming high? do you have goals? do you have soul goals? think you could make time this week/weekend to sit with a pad of paper and a pen, a cup of coffee/tea/beer/wine… to ask yourself what you really want, and to listen?
to living on purpose and with purpose,
