One thing that I should mention is that it is not my first attempt at blogging. In fact, 4 years ago, I started a WordPress just for myself, because I was on a “quest for happiness“. I was in a very bad rut at this moment, and so I started searching for anything that could help improve my mood. I had read somewhere that taking the habit of journaling things that you were grateful for could help increase your level of happiness, so I started this habit on a WordPress page. If this old page ever interests you, you can find it right here.
On this old blog, I did an exercise created by Tony Robbins, that allowed me to reflect on the person that I was and to think about the person that I wanted to become. It is funny how these hopes that had, perfectly turned out to become my reality today, 4 years later.
I am convinced that everyone has the potential to live the life of his/her dreams. One easy tool that I learned for this is to question the person that you are, in every area of your life, so that you become aware of the necessary steps to take to improve your situation. For my case, I would like to reflect on 4 particular areas of my life (love, physical health, wealth and happiness), but this exercise could be applied to so much more. Please, feel free to do this exercise, and to let me know about it. I would love to see what you come out with. So here it is, part 1 of 4.
1.Who am I, right now ?
I am pretty sure I found the man of my life. I know it is a big thing to say, but I can feel it in my heart. We get along so well, and we have good communication. We go on lots of adventures, we have several projects that we want to achieve together for the years to come and we value the same things. He makes me a better person in many ways. Around him, I am positive, caring and I laugh all the time.
2.Who do I want to become ?
I want a relationship where we are partners and where we take care of each other. I want to be a loving and caring girlfriend, and bring so much joy to my partner’s life, daily. I want to be adventurous, go on trips, and make lots of projects with him. I want a healthy relationship, long long-term. And even when it gets harder, I want a relationship where we can talk things through, always in a respectful manner.
3.How can I get there ?
In my last relationships, I had the tendency to slack on the effort I was putting into them when it got harder. There is no way I can compare what I have with my boyfriend right now with my previous relationships, but I need to consider this very seriously. To have a long-term relationship, we will need to help each other and to develop even better communication skills. We will need to trust each other, to be grateful for having each other in our lives, and to invest time in our relationship, even when we’ll think we don’t have the time. We will need lots of love.
Let me know what you think of this exercise, and especially if you try it yourself! 🙂
