If you really stop and listen to your heart, to your intuition, what is it trying to tell you?
What do you need? What do you want? Are you holding back from doing something out of fear? Is it telling you to take the chance, that everything will work out as it is meant to?
For all of the mother’s out there celebrating Mother’s Day this weekend, what can you do to make Mother’s Day enjoyable for you? Do you need to buy yourself a gift, plan in some quiet time on the day, tell your partner what you need them to do on Mother’s Day (because they are not always good at guessing!), or do you need to lower your expectations? I had quite a lot of Mother’s Day’s where I felt disappointed that I couldn’t get the day I wished for… until I learnt that I needed to lower my expectations of others and do something for myself to make Mother’s Day more enjoyable for me!
What you you want people to remember about you? Is there one particular trait or thing that you want to be remembered by? Friendly, kind, funny, intelligent, your smile, your energy?
We are halfway through Autumn here in Australia and in Melbourne we seem to have come to the end of our warm weather. The leaves are changing colour and beginning to fall from the trees. Soon, the colder weather of winter will be here.
Do you have a list of things you want to do in Autumn (or Spring if you are in the Northern hemisphere) before the season ends?
I want to take the kids on a picnic, enjoy the dry sunny days while we still have them, take a day trip to another zoo, sit in the park drinking coffee with a friend, play with the kids in the fallen leaves, and get some gardening done.
What is on your Autumn bucket list?
The full moon tonight provides the perfect opportunity to release and let go of anything that no longer serves you anymore. By that I mean emotions,thoughts, ideas, beliefs, relationships or things that do not benefit you any longer. Letting go of some of these things can make space in your life for new things to enter your life.
What do you need to let go of to make room for the new, or to give you peace? Forgiveness is a way of letting go also, is there someone you need to forgive? Or something you need to forgive yourself for?
What five things (or more) are you grateful for today? A few months ago I wrote on the blog about how a daily gratitude practice has helped me. You can read it here.
This post is part of my weekly self discovery question series. You can find the rest of the weekly questions here.
What do you need to do this week to look after yourself?
If you need some ideas check out one of the first blog posts I wrote on the importance of self-care here.
Who do you most admire? What are the qualities about them that you admire?
Can you recognise these qualities in yourself or are they qualities that you would like to develop?
