Yesterday’s Reverb 10 prompt asked: What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today.
Can I be totally honest? Not that I’m not always honest on here, but can I be completely and vulnerably open for a sec? I don’t want to answer this question. Not anywhere public.
It’s not because I don’t know the answer. I am more clear on this answer than on anything I have ever been clear on. Ever. But I don’t want to answer because what I would say is too big, too precious, and too full of “oh, come ON that’ll never happen” demons to share. Seriously. I’ve shared it with exactly two people in the entire world, and I regretted one of them. And this goal is something that I’ve avoided for a decade…I don’t want to talk about it and then fail…again. Like I said, DEMONS.
I do want to say something else, though. I was just checking out the work of Tara Sophia Mohr, the woman who wrote this prompt, and I LOVE her approach to goals (which is pretty much exactly what this prompt is). I’ve actually taken notes on her process and replaced the “Goddess Goals” pages in my Goddess Workbook with it because that part always made me feel crappy, and her process doesn’t. So you should totally check out her site. And I promise that I’ll let you know if I achieved my goal, or take steps toward it, or if I managed to create the feelings of that goal throughout the year…but it’s not something I can share right now. I just can’t do it. I’m going to go write in my top-secret journal about it!
