Plans For The Week #44


Quote of the day:
Make sure you visualize what you really want, not what someone else wants for you. -Jerry Gillies




The past is the past and the present is the present. It is this past that has shaped the way we live, think and act. There are days when we long for things, immersed in the glory of old, and spending much time imagining what could have been but never was. But how about focusing more on the here and now -the present? How are you faring with your dreams, and what are you doing daily to get you closer to it? Who are the people to help you achieve what you want? Forgot the past, and those who let you down, because it happened for a reason and you have gained valuable lessons on your journey so far. Its good to look back, but stay focused on the steps you are taking now so as not to stumble.

Here are most of my plans for the week ahead which I am sharing with you.

Plans

1. Project calmness. In the coming week, I hope to project calmness in all things, with every action and interaction. I plan to practice breathing exercises to help me retain my balance and relaxed nature. In order to do this, I must elimintate weak thoughts from the past.

2. Focus on my needs. What do I want for the coming week? How will I improve my skills and abilities? I want to focus more on achieving this and lots more. Also, focusing on one important thing at a time, one idea at time.

3. Appreciate everything. The very act of waking up, of dreaming through the night, of seeing the sun waking up and brightening the day -I want to be able to brighten up everyone's day. To do this, I must practice the act of appreciation of the little things.

4. Read, read, read. As my goal of reading at least 5 books a month continues, I am also open to learning new things, seeking answers and expanding my knowlege of history.

5. Workout. To maintain a balance both mentally and physically, I plan to workout at least thrice in the week. Sweat, pain and triumph which leads to better sleep for my body, and improved thought processes.

6. Walk more. I want to wander and discover new places just by walking, even if for just 10 minutes daily. Or maybe just taking a different route.

7. Dream more. I want to dream more, open up my mind to the endless possiblities in the world.


There goes my plans for the week, and can I ask what you want to achieve for yourself in this new week? Do share.


Peace. Love. Light*

  1. Living in the past can be delightful if it's a good time in your life, but only do it now and then. The remembering part that is. Living in the here and now is far more healthy.

    Have a fabulous week. ☺

  6. Sounds like you have a plan for the week. I wish you well with each goal. People always say don't dwell on the past but, it is harder to do in real life so the best thing to do is keep busy fill your thoughts with something else.

  8. The plans for the week are already in chaos. It appears that the cosmos has alternative plans for me. Time to wait and see what unfolds.

  12. You have some great plans. I'm with you on some of them, especially the walking, which I understand is as good for you as any other exercise. This week, I want to really spend some time writing and thinking (maybe dreaming a bit).

  13. Great plans for the week, "B"...a perfect blend of physical, mental and spiritual activities!
    I would like to take more time out this week, to practice mindfulness, to stop worrying so much...and, yes, to dream a bit! :)

    Have a Great Week!

  15. These are great plans. I love what you said about the here and now. We need to consider what we are doing now to move us closer to our dreams. That is so important.

  16. I like to complete at least one major walk every week but when I walk depends on the weather so there's a certain randomness about it. If i were you - living in London - I would sometimes take a train into rural Kent, Essex or Sussex and then undertake long walks using Ordnance Survey maps to help my explorations. You never know what you will see and to me this is the very best way of "working out".

  22. Interesting points here.

  32. I love that opening quote you used. That's really true. We often forget or get confused about what we want because we get like brainwashed or dictated by others. Always important to stay focused.

    Hope you get all your plans done.
