I have decided to use a workbook in order to direct my life in a more positive way. The first thing the workbook wants is a word that I will relate to during 2017. This word is to direct me, inspire me and help me achieve a happy, shining life. That is a great deal of importance placed on this one word. So what word should I pick?
The journal says I should ask myself the following two questions.
- What do I need more of?
- What do I need less of?
The second question is easier to answer. I need less stress. I am worried about everything. I’m worried about my finances, I’m worried about my children, I’m worried about my house falling apart, I’m worried about my health, I’m worried about my business. I have panic attacks where my heart pounds and I can’t breathe because the pressure across my chest is so intense. This even happens while I’m sleeping! And sleeping … I wish I could sleep a peaceful sleep. I toss and turn and no longer dream. I would love to sleep normally again.
So what do I need more of? I would like to have more time with my children one on one. With the phones put away and attention spent on each other. I need to get back into a creative mode, where I produce something. I waste so much time playing silly online games. I need more balance in my life where I take care of myself, my children, my home and my finances/business.
I have narrowed my word list down to five words: Believe, restore, build, explore and nourish. Which one should I pick?
