All you have to do is write down a few headlines like; family, friends, job, business, personal budget, travel, gratitude, freedom, society, volunteerism, spirituality, physical fitness, entertainment and finally your role in family and the society. You can write on the palm of your hand, notes section of the cell phone or a napkin in a restaurant.
This is a trip to yourselves, you've been to places, done things, met people... it is time to visit yourselves and enjoy the connection. You'll love it.
FAMILY – Thoughts on strengthening the bonds and spending more time with family – first I would write randomly with no sequence or priority, but just thoughts in bullet format, then I go back and enhance and reflect on each relationship within my family.
FRIENDS – same process, who are my closest friends, what kind of things I need to continue to do to nurture the relationships? Reflect on each friend and what I want happen with that relationship.
BUSINESS/PROFESSION – Where am I going with it, where will I be in a year, two or five years? I don’t have to be perfect and precise, but just a thought of having an idea of where I will be is good. Then develop from it. Those employed securely need not worry, you are blessed.
BUDGET - Take a look at your income from all sources and then put down monthly fixed payments that you have to pay. Then add those payments that you can do away with or add on to. Figure out what to do with the shortage or surplus.
YOUR ROLE - What role do you want to play in the society? speak up when you see some thing is wrong, write a comment on blog or news paper, or tell friends that there is another point of view to consider... make a genuine effort to see another point of view. On my part I have determined that whatever I talk, think and act will lead towards mitigating conflicts and nurturing good will and I will make every effort NOT to aggravate a situation. What is that you want to do? You think about it.
You can make your own list, please do this exercise, it is worth your time and you will start finding meaning in your life.
Make your own list... at the end of the two hours, you will find relief, comfort and a sense of purpose in life.
Enjoy this beautiful song on the theme of visiting myself. It is one of my favorite songs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhQWND9jKDA
