Last week’s effort to increase my emotional awareness was educational and interesting. I’ve glad I made that a priority and I plan to continue to pay attention to what I am feeling. It sounds so basic when I write it out, but it felt like a revelation.
Wednesday I wished to spend more time playing and more time living in my body. This week I’m asking the Universe to help me combine those wishes into some joyful movement.
What I Want
I want to make a habit of joyfully moving and enjoying my body. I want to live in my body and love every second of it.
I’ve frequently thought that I should get more exercise — I always feel good after exercising and it’s good for my body. However, that’s not a very interesting approach, and it’s not surprising that I can typically think of something better to do. This week I want to focus on enjoying my body and what she/we/I can do.
The Potential I Can See
I can play!
I can get out my skirt and belly dance.
I can do some of the yoga poses that make me feel strong.
I can take walks and run down the hills.
I could put on some music and dance around the apartment — this is why YouTube exists.
I can also be open to a universe of possibilities that I haven’t even thought of yet.
I commit to trying something new every day this week and paying attention to the amount of joy I feel. I commit to repeating the fun stuff and passing over the boring stuff.
I commit to loving my body and spending some time with her/me.
