To help me be more consistent and curb writers block, I’m doing the “30 Day Killer Journaling Challenge for Self Love and Self Discovery” created by Isabelle Dias. If you’d like to take the challenge yourself, click the link for a full list of prompts.
What about you? How are you currently getting your needs met? “
This question builds off of yesterday’s “what do you need to thrive?”. I’m immediately reflective as this touches on something I’ve been dancing around for a while. For the last couple of years, I’ve averaged about 3,000 steps a day which isn’t a whole lot. I quite frankly don’t give a mouse fart about the recommended 10,000 steps a day, but the point is that I haven’t been getting my needs met for a long time, but I’m starting to come to life again. For at least two years now, my life has consisted of a long series of Netflix binging and generally feeling like shit. The trip to Oregon last year definitely raised my spirits as it met my need for friends, adventure, and art.
My husband is currently training to run 100K this coming September, and while I’ve mentioned before that I have zero aspirations to do something like this myself, it is driving me to ask what I want for myself. I’ve starting planning trips again (like our upcoming adventure to Canada), and I’m reading a book every night before bed. I’m getting up and moving with friends (we’ve been SyncTubing dance workouts). I’m pulling out the art pieces we’ve picked up on old adventures that never got framed and hanging them on the walls. I’m finding resources for managing my ADHD. I’m finally paying attention to what my needs actually are and slowly building a life that makes me really happy again.
