You deserve to
love your life
have you experienced 7 days of this before?
Last week I was living my dream week. Have you ever taken the time to document when you’ve had a really good day, or even a really good week? It’s helpful to take stock on what’s working and what’s not.
Here’s all the things that filled my cup over 7 days from Oct. 21 – 28:
- I went to a pumpkin patch with my family
- walked 25 minutes every morning
- listened + finished a book on Audible
- got a 90-minute massage
- watched a movie with my family
- had an energizing team call as we clarified my offerings for 2020
- had coaching calls with my clients
- virtual co-coaching with a friend + dreamed and doodled
- hipline dance class with friends –– my favorite teacher Nadia, played all the hits
- sunset hike with a friend and fur babies
- long lunch at True Food Kitchen + mastermind with friends
- shopped at my favorite store Anthropologie (they had 25% off everything for members)
- double date night to see Thom Yorke in concert under the stars –– followed by late night tacos and carne asada fries
- shopping day with Zoe to help her find a book for her friend’s birthday + ate Wetzel Pretzel bits!
- girls night in at my place where watched When Harry Met Sally + Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and played Dutch Blitz until 2:30am
- drove to wine country for my friend’s baby blessing + shower (during my solo drive there and back I got to catch up with my mom and friend)
I look at my life like one big experiment.
So I wrote down why I loved my week so much: I was with my family and friends outdoors. I listened to live music. I gave myself time and space to think and dream. I connected with my favorite girlfriends in person and online. I moved my body. I had valuable + insightful conversations with my clients. I created content that would be valuable for other people’s audiences. Lots of experiences that activated all of my senses. I felt useful + focused. I felt inspired and strong. I felt creative and intentional.
I also asked myself what was missing. Here’s what I wrote: doing in person events with clients (bringing people together and leading retreats + workshops is my FAVORITE thing to do in my business); writing my book and creating my planner (I spent more time creating content for others, versus creating content for my own body of work).
What does a dream week look like for you?
Take the time to write it down.
That’s why I love having conversations with so many creatives and entrepreneurs on my podcast. I get to hear people’s stories on how they pursue their dream life through persistence, resilience and curiosity.
