Week 5 - Reflection
January - What a month!
My apologies - I am a little behind with the experiments!
Week 5 was to reflect on the past challenges and the impact they have had on my life. You know, January was such an odd month. Filled with high emotion but it was a static month - nothing really happened. I always feel funny in January. I think it's because it's the first month of a new year and I expect my life to miraculously change into something more epic than it currently is. My life is actually very decent so wanting more without being grateful for what you have is a slippery slope. I am also disappointed with myself for not sticking with the intense fitness regime, regular and consistent meditation, and the very clean healthy eating. Carbs and the sofa found me but what can you do!
I've enjoyed all the experiments. It's nice to bring something new into your weekly routine and each experiment resulted in a different feeling and reward. It shakes things up a bit! Whilst I do not tell people why I love them all the time, I am more conscious to be more positive with the people around me and to remind them of their amazing traits and it is always nice to see their reaction. Cooking with love is always a good one - I cook all the time and that makes me happy :) Akhil gives me feedback on everything I cook and has become more open to trying things. Getting fresh air in the morning is great! I am without a car at the moment and so we have to walk to school and take the tube to work. That bit of fresh air first thing in the morning is wonderful and we love it. It is also that little bit of extra time together where we aren't rushing and we talk to each other. It's been a bonding experience and Akhil is feeling more confident and independent as he walks the last bit of the way by himself. Limiting the use of my phone has been great. I still do not have my phone in my room and I have come off facebook completely. Freedom!! My battery and data lasts longer and I am not so glued to my phone because there isn't really much to do on it anymore! My addiction to candy crush is still strong and ongoing though.
I am looking forward to February. It is my birthday next week and I have decided to hand in my notice with my current job and take a leap of faith in the universe that something amazing and suitable is waiting for me to grab! This is the area of my life I am determined to see the biggest change. Every time I am on the move and alone, I listen to law of attraction audio's to remind myself what I want and how I want to see my life. The next experiments will tie into that perfectly as it's all about nurturing your mind and soul. Bring it on!
