Self Discovery Prompt:
Take ten minutes to sit with the thought, “What am I most looking forward to in my life?” Then journal about it. Don’t try to make it realistic according to where you are in life right now. Use it to add a little more juice to your manifesting.
When I think about the meaning behind the words “what I am most looking forward to in my life”, I first think about the fact that I want to be able to let out a big sigh and shout “I made it!” I look forward to graduating college, I look forward to knowing that I never gave up despite how extremely difficult it became at times. I look forward to becoming a parent and teaching my children everything my parents have taught me. I look forward to settling down, being able to be more financially stable and being excited to look through online websites that display houses that are for sale because I know I will be a home owner one day. I look forward to the day that my significant other and I will no longer have to say come over to each other, but instead come home, because we will be at a point in which the level of trust, respect, honesty, and loyalty has been built up and we can now live together. I look forward to the day when I move on from the position I am currently working in, and although I am scared because I am used to working where I am now, I look forward to it because I know I will be moving on because I have worked hard. I look forward for the days that I will spend relaxing with my loved ones, with my family, and my friends. The days that will turn into the best memories of my life. I look forward to being the best me that I can possibly be, and not settling for anything less than I know I deserve.
What about you??? What are you most looking forward to in YOUR life???
I had to think really hard about this. I’m still young and as I look back on my life for reference points to see how far I’ve come I only come up with feelings of guilt rather than strength and assurance. But now, at the pinnacle of youth (so to speak), this is not a time for pity. It’s a time to look ahead not behind!
I look forward to the day when college rolls around to start, to those days I tick off on my calendar and I can breathe a sigh of relief saying, “This isn’t so bad!” Then suddenly, I can shake hands with the dean of my program and have a degree of psychology in hand carrying new tools on my belt to apply not only to myself but towards other encounters. I look forward to the day when I won’t have to question my future -be it my job or my personal affairs- and I will be content to live and be okay in what I am doing, in who I am as a whole. I look forward to the day when my health overall improves (physically as well as mentally), when I can tell my psychiatrist I no longer need my medications and throw them all in the garbage because you know what? I can do this ON MY OWN. I look forward to the day when I can drive and not panic after only a few miles. I look forward to the day when I can wear my non-binary emblem with pride rather than disgrace and fear. I look forward to the day when I can be open with people instead of confrontational or wary to the point of isolation. I… Look forward to settling down with someone who will be as happy and proud to share their life with me as I am with them.
There is nothing more exciting than a hard rain on an early Saturday morning. I sit back and sip my coffee and toast. I bet the grandkids are coming over and we will end up going for a long walk.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us guys!
