Get the Blooming Juices Flowing

You might be thinking that happiness is BIG topic and there's no easy way to know how to create a happy life. I'm here to tell you that IT IS EASY. You just have to chunk it up. The beBlooming Program takes you through each component of the formula, step by step.

There are 3 tracks to the program: beYou, beTogether, and beParents.

Everything starts with you! So, the beYou track is the "prerequisite" to the other 2 tracks. Knowingess is the first step of the beYOU program. Knowing who and how you want to be, what you want to do, and what you want to have is the basis for everything else in your life.

So, let's start with some exercises to get the juices flowing! I've found that the best way to capture my thoughts is in an old fashion paper journal but use whatever works best for you.

Make a 30 minute date with yourself. 30 minutes isn't hard. I know you can do it. Actually, only YOU can do it. Spend 5 minutes less a day getting dressed. Spend less time on fb. Whatever it takes. YOU CAN squeeze it in. After all, it's your life we're talking about.

Start here. For a worksheet of these questions, click here.
  1. How purposefully are you living your life?
  2. List 5-10 things you value in life
  3. What would you try right now if you knew you would never fail at it?
  4. What did you used to do that gave you energy that you don’t do anymore? (hobby, talent, relationships)
  5. What traditions are important to you?
  6. How is your life the same or different than you expected it to be?
  7. How is your true self (the way you feel about yourself right now) the same or different than how others perceive you and the same or different than the person you want to be?
  8. List the things in your life that expand and contract you. The things that give you energy or drain you. Trust your gut, your first reaction.
  9. If your life was exactly the same 5 years from now, would you be okay with that?
  10. Who expects you to be somebody?

I'll be back! In the meantime, #beBlooming.
