Today, in my Beautiful Me Journal, the author of the book I’m using suggests the reader to consider her vision. She urges that an understanding of what we all want puts us in a position to actually work towards that possibility. I have to admit that I understand the words she is using and the intent, but I am going to struggle with this particular exercise. If I understood what I wanted out of life, I believe I would be miles ahead of where I am at. I believe a lot of my worries and problems would have answers. But, I’ll give it an attempt. Here are the questions the author has asked and my answers:
What is your vision for yourself?
As I mentioned above, this is really difficult for me to answer. So, I’m going to give a generalized answer and hope the specifics develop over time. The reality is this: I want to feel good about myself. I want to be the person people know as happy and content. I want to be referred to as optimistic and positive again. I want to feel and be healthy.
What do you wish or want for yourself?
Um…I think I kind of answered this in the last question. But, I’ll add to it. I want to be healthy and have a healthy lifestyle again. I want to feel secure in a loving relationship. I want to feel secure financially.
How is that different from who you are or where you are today?
See this post linked here, to see how I feel about myself today. Literally, I want completely opposite views and feelings about myself.
What do you think would make you feel more confident?
I have high hopes that this process of following the Beautiful You recommendations will assist in that. I’ve also made an appointment to see a therapist. But, ultimately, I feel like there are things on the exterior of my being that I rely on too much and I have lost touch with what’s on my interior – those skills and characteristics I would like to tap into and use.
