My dream journal, Striving for growth and a new recipe video.
October has been a busy month! You guys, I missed Thursday thoughts last month, and I could not just do the same thing for October so here I am checking in.
First up, New Video. I love watching my finished videos. I wish I can say the same thing for shooting and editing the videos, though. I guess the final product makes all the fuss of shooting a video all worth it. I definitely have a big room for improvements but I just have to show up for each and every shoot, I guess.
For quite a while now, probably since the start of July , I have been writing in a dream journal. I write a list of the things I aspire to achieve as an individual- it is just one and the same list that I write repeatedly every morning, as inspired by Rachel Hollis’ Ten dreams from her book, Girl Stop Apologizing.
They are not necessarily all goals goals that have a timeline. As a matter of fact 50% of the things in the list are geared toward improving my personality.
I am so inclined to things like that. I just love the idea of growth. Growing up, I can say that I was timid, restrained and awkward but with so much things bottled up inside. Now more than ever, I have the desire to actually be more of myself, be more confident and calm.
Some of the things in my list are:
- I have a calm-focused mind.
- I am never rattled.
- I laugh out loud everyday.
- I do not worry, I act.
- I am confident in the way I talk and in the way I move.
Now the list does not mean that I will eventually arrive at an endpoint and check them off. It is just that writing them reminds me to strive for these things everyday, and eventually they become an integral part of me in the process.
I guess in my desire to move the blog forward, I am naturally drawn to improve myself in other areas as well. Striving for growth makes me leap out of bed very early every day, excited to re-invent myself and take on the day.
You see, I am not talking about massive, groundbreaking improvements. If I can breeze through the day with a calm, and composed disposition, then I grow.
If I can carry on a conversation and speak my mind clearly, I grow.
If I can act like myself instead of playing small, I grow.
How about you? In what ways you would like to grow? You know I would like to hear from you.
Until next time.
