I feel like I have really been focusing on my lifestyle posts on this blog recently with hauls, empties and who knows what else! I’ve decided (as I so often do) that I am going to set myself a challenge – since we all know that I’m useless when it comes to sticking to challenges, I am going to leave the parameters pretty loose. There are 30 journal prompts which I plan to answer as honestly and as in depth as I can. I’m not setting myself the goal to do one a day and there is no time limit to complete the series. It may take me a month, it may take me a year but I really hope to complete the set!
Question One: When I wake up in the morning, how do I most want to feel?
The way that I want to feel depends on what I have planned for the day. If it’s a work day, my goals in terms of my feelings are different to those on a weekend.
Work day: When I’m working I always wake up with the same goal, I want to feel happy and accomplished. I want to feel relaxed and like I am doing my best at work. At my work they run an employee of the month incentive, my goal every day is to work as hard as I can to do my best. The way that I try to achieve this is by imagining that every day they are observing for employee of the month. Whilst I am under absolutely no illusions that I am going to be chosen for employee of the month every month – I have been incredibly lucky to get awarded with it twice already! – it motivates me to work my bum off and always try my hardest. In order to be happy I need to work hard and to feel like I am accomplishing something, even if that’s just getting through the day knowing that I have done my best.
Weekend: It does differ slightly based on what I’m doing during the weekends but on the whole I want to wake up on the weekend feeling relaxed but also productive. I’d love to lay in bed all day and really relax but I know that if I don’t do something with my time off, be it housework, blogging or just getting out of the house, I will regret it and wake up the following morning feeling like I wasted my day.
I’m not 100% sure that I answered the question in the way that it was intended however that’s my interpretation of the question and there’s my answer. If you’re interested to see the rest of these posts, give it a like so that I know you enjoy my journalling posts.
How do you want to feel when you wake up?
