Ah…this one has been around for a while, but I need to re-remind myself what it all means every now and again. Those 4 words came from a book group study. “Desire Mapping” by Danielle LaPorte. The subject was about goal setting, but it came at it from a whole new perspective! Instead of setting long term goals that may or not be achieved and regardless of which it is, both of those possible outcomes present the obvious question "What next?" or beating myself up emotionally because I did not achieve it. This book got me to rethink goals in terms of how I want to feel EVERY DAY. These are my goals for how I want to feel every single day I am here. Everything else will fall into place if I can keep these 4 feelings in front of my daily existence. Life and shit happens! I have had my share of both, as I am sure most of us have. Long term desires and goals get sidelined. But my daily emotional goals get me through it all! excited, fearless, connected, passionate....yes!
