Live a Well-Designed Life

Envisioning My 2021

My morning ritual tends to be different every day based on how I am feeling and what I need, but more often than not, it includes prayers, a cup of tea, journaling and listening to something inspirational – these are my NON-NEGOTIABLES. I have been drawn to my journal a lot lately as a tool to begin preparing for the new year.

So today, I wanted to share some of my favourite journaling practices that I am currently using:

Envisioning & Life-Scripting

I have been visioning my 2021 by journaling out what I desire to create in each area of my life next year. I describe in as much detail as I can what my desires look and feel like – I ask myself the following questions:

  • Who is the woman I want to be this year?
  • What are the top 4 goals I want to achieve this year? I usually keep one big goal per quarter.
  • What can I be excited about?
  • What are the habits that held me back last year?
  • What am I ready to let go of?
  • What new habits can help me move forward?
  • What is my power mantra?

I then, write it all in the present tense as though it’s already happened. I then close my eyes and visualise living these manifestations and connect with the feeling of having them. I give myself permission to daydream.

Re-writing my Limiting Beliefs

As I connect with my vision and I notice any limiting beliefs, fear, self-doubt or old inner stories arise, I catch them out and write them down. I then consciously choose some new ways of thinking which are empowering, kind, loving, and supportive and will take me where I want to go. I then write these down as new affirmations to practise.

Clearing & Releasing

One of my big practices at the moment is reflecting on what I am ready to complete and let go of. It may be an old way of doing things, a habit, a situation, a belief, an old cycle, something that makes me feel heavy, anything holding me back or simply something I have outgrown. Through writing these out I can clearly see what I need to release and then I sometimes rip up or burn this list as part of the ritual of releasing it.

Rather than only focusing on what I want in the future, I use my journal to appreciate what I already have. Sometimes I find I can feel frustrated when what I want isn’t here yet, but when I take time to notice what is already going well and be grateful for what I already have, I suddenly find a new level of contentment with where I am.
