When you look back, what will you see? Will you be looking back in anger, sorrow, or joy?
The future is yours to create, right now.
Your Personal Development Exercise
Take a few moments to imagine yourself five or ten years from now. You’re sitting in a cafe, with a friend and you’re both reminiscing. Maybe you have a glass of chilled wine, or a mug of coffee or a cup of tea.
You’re really happy with what you’ve achieved over these last few years. You listen contentedly to your friend describing her life and now it’s your turn. What are you going to say? What do you want to see when you look back and share some significant events in your life? What would make you proud of yourself?
Focus for a few moments on the following key areas in your life and consider what, if anything, you want to change:
- Significant Others?
- Where you live?
- Friends or family?
- Places you have visited?
- Hobbies or pastimes?
- Add your own…
What do you have to do now, this week, this month or this year to make those reflections become a reality? To allow yourself to look back in JOY, to be proud, content and fulfilled in your life?
