6 months left to live? I had a strong reaction to this.
Last week while learning about existential psychotherapy, our professor asked us to think about what we would do if we had 6 months to live. I had a strong reaction to it.
I thought about all the people and things I loved. I thought about all things I want to do. I thought about who I wanna be, my ideal self.
Yesterday I asked you a few questions. (Feel free to join on my last post!) Today I'm sharing my answers.
I realized what I want to achieve is the same things I'm already doing. I want to travel, love + laugh intensely, enjoy the little things, connect with others, surround myself with kind loving people. ❤
I want to explore new places. See new people. 🌏
• what I want to say
I want to be authentically myself by being honest about what I feel and want. I want to get the courage to stand up for myself and not let others belittle me or talk over me. (Is there anything more annoying than ppl talking over you?) 🙄
• what you want to give up
I want to give up self doubt. I want to roll around in so much self confidence it equally inspires and grosses people out. 😝
Here's the thing though, I'm already doing most of these things. And let's face it- they're all pretty attainable. The things I haven't achieved yet, I'm working towards anyways. I've been going through a rocky chapter, as some of you know. I've been working on finding my way out of it. And I'm excited to share the journey with you! This class activity really got me thinking...
But maybe, we don't need our life to end to make a change. Our motivation for chasing our goals and dreams doesn't need to be based on a catastrophe. The world doesn't need to end. Your world doesn't need to end. Start here. Start now. Just start today.
Throwback to DR with my bf who took this picture and will make fun of me for posting it. 🙄
