Feelings over To-do Lists

Welcome this morning’s light with all your love and strength.

I received my copy of Danielle LaPorte’s The Fire Starter Sessions this week and have been soaking it up.  If you have not checked her out, you should buy the book and go to her website now.  (Take that as one of your action items for the week.)

One of the changes I have made in my life this week is to think about how I want to feel instead of thinking of my to do list.

Here’s how it works, as you think about your week ahead on this beautiful Monday, ask yourself, “How do I want to feel when I look at the things I have to do this week?”  “How do I want to feel at work?” “How do I want to feel as I negotiate with my ex about custody this week?”  “How do I want to feel once the divorce is final?” “How do I want to feel about myself and my decisions in this separation?”

After you have done some real contemplating on those questions, take a moment and make a list of how you want to feel.

Action Steps

Take Action Now.

  • Really think about how you want to feel in every scenario that comes up for you, especially those that usually really stress you out.
  • Make a list of how you want to feel.
  • Get out sticky notes and put these positive feelings in your planner, or on your computer screen at work.  Remember them as you go about your day.
  • Make any to do list keeping how you want to feel in mind.  If it makes you feel crumby, truly rethink putting it on your to do list.  Is your still, small, wise voice trying to tell you something?
