Live your intention

What would your life be like if each day you lived your intention? What do you really want in your life? What truly matters to you? Try it and see what happens.

Intention

Feeling trapped?

Freedom (2)

When you are feeling low, here’s what you need to know.

girl-470690_960_720Most of us try to resist or ignore sad or fearful thoughts.

We deny them or try to talk ourselves out of feeling the way we already do. Or worse yet, we beat-up on ourselves for feeling what we are feeling.

If you want to release and reduce the intensity of feeling low, don’t resist fearful or sad thoughts – let them in and breathe deeply.

Doing so sounds counter intuitive, but you’ll be surprised how fast sad or upsetting thoughts fade when you simply let them in and admit you are afraid or feeling sad. (Works for jealousy and many other negative, nagging vibes, as well.)

Your body will respond by releasing the tension surrounding the thoughts. It’s as though your brain tells your body, “Whew, she’s finally listening to us, now we can relax.”
We all liked to be heard. Your brain and body are no different. Don’t try to outrun your feelings, they will just work harder to catch-up with you.

Let those pesky feelings in, and soon they will learn you can handle what they bring and they won’t have to work so hard to get your attention.

And, breathe.

 

Channel and soul searching

Fun to look back . . . five years ago and it still applies. Since I wrote this, I have returned to Europe a number of times, fell in love, married, traveled even more and spent time helping and reaching out to lots of folks throughout the years and along the way. Life is a fantastic reality show if you live it with meaning, fun, family and friends. Turn your channel surfing into some real life surfing, get off the couch and go!

 

Wishful Thinking Works: Create the life you really want

 

I’ve been channel surfing this week, and it got me thinking . . .

So You Think You Can Dance

If you had to “Dance for Your Life”, so to speak, what would you be doing?  If you had 30 seconds to WOW the world, what would you do?  How would you share your best?

What has been your shining moment so far? What’s made your heart race, your spine tingle and goosebumps grow? How would you choose to share the best of you with the rest of the world?

 

Expedition Impossible

Where do you want to go, and what do you want to do? Would you like to: Climb Everest? Sing on Broadway? Graduate Oxford or Le Cordon Bleu? Sip cappuccino in Italy, wine in France? Surf in Costa Rico? Swim the Channel?

What would be your perfect journey?  What would you be doing? What challenges and excites you? What would you like to accomplish that you haven’t…

True peace of mind

True Peace of Mind The Meaning Project (2)

Free Virtual WTW Workshop, “Finding More Meaning in Your Life”

Wishful Thinking Works Meaning of Your Life (2)Do you feel that your life has purpose and meaning? Are you excited to get our of bed each morning?

Or, are you busy but not really satisfied with your life? Are you second guessing your career, your relationships, your life choices?  Are you wondering what to do next?

Studies show that those who are leading a purposeful life – live longer, are happier and experience a greater sense of resiliency and trust! I know my life did a 180 when I focused on what mattered, which led me in many new and rewarding directions.

Would you like to learn more about the concept of meaning, the role it plays in your life and how to find yours?

  • If so, join us on Wednesday, July 19 at 6:30 p.m to learn about the latest research on meaning and to take an individual survey to discover where you fall on the meaningful life scale. (Only you will know your score, unless you choose to share it!)

Taking the 3-5 minute survey can help you get started on your personal meaning journey. A few days before we meet I will send you the survey and we will score it at the end of our session.

Also before we meet, please read my Wishful Thinking Works post about PERMA (3 minutes), which describes a bit about purpose and then join us for a fun evening of insights and positivity! (Hint: Meaning is related to connectedness and relationship, but not necessarily how we may normally think about them.)

We will begin at 6:30 pm with a Welcome and Intros and then I will share on the topic for about 35-40 minutes followed by Q & A and survey scoring.

RSVP today!  I will email you details about joining our call by July 17.

Meaning matters and can enrich and expand your life!

Talk with you soon.

Warm regards,

Patrice
