Becoming my best self

Monday, March 11, 2013

I recently read another sparker's blog entry that spoke about the need for self-reflection and setting intentions for how to become our ideal self. One of the suggestions was to create a list of qualities that your idea self would have - sort of similar to making a wish list of characteristics you'd like to find in an ideal mate, but for yourself instead. I love this idea because it provides a bit of a "roadmap" to becoming my very best self.

So here's my list characteristics my ideal self would have:

Passion
Compassion
Honesty
A Sense of Humour
A Sense of Adventure
Fun
Friendship
Integrity
Intelligence
Creativity
Determination
Resilience
Perseverance
Confidence
Efficacy
Gumption
Respect
Tolerance
Persistence
Humility
Optimism
Discipline
Motivation
Ambition
Focus
Happiness
Empathy
Generosity
Self-respect
Pride
Adaptability
Balance
Intention
Consciousness
Charm
Energy
Magnetism
Innovation
Imagination
Logic
inspiration
Nurturing
Open-minded
Strength
Resourcefulness
Uniqueness
Curiousity
Fearlessness


Who do you want to be? And what steps are you taking to get there?

    Looking through this list I'd wager to bet you already ARE these things. Maybe some need a little fine tuning but you are your best self right now. It will change as you go but don't lose sight of how awesome you are TODAY!

    wonderful list.
    im glad to say that most of those things can be achieved regardless of your size.
    that is a wonderful list of things you can be without changing the outside but the inside.
    in the end the inside counts more than the outside you can change the outside all you want but the inside is what matters the most.
    good job
