What Would You Love to Do Today?
How often do you ask yourself: What would I love to do today? For many of us, it may seem like a pointless question – irrelevant because we can’t see any way that we might actually be able to do it.
Modern life can be so hectic and demanding, with precious little time to indulge our casual whims and fancies. Perhaps we’re far too busy doing all the Must Dos to have any time left for any pleasant-but-not-essential activities.
Or maybe we feel that the things we’d love to do might be nice, but wouldn’t actually help us make the progress we’re looking for in our life or work.
Or it may even be that we feel it’s too indulgent to do things just for sheer pleasure, especially when there are other people clamoring for our energy, attention and time.
There are lots of reasons why we neglect this question.
And as valid as these reasons may be – and even if it really would be impossible to do what we’d love – I believe there is still value in asking ourselves this question on a regular basis.
Because it’s a powerful idea that forces us to tune into our deepest wishes and desires, to get in touch with the essence of our heart and soul.
And this tuning in, this connection, is not only good for us – it’s also a creative force.
Considering our desires is a way to access our innate creative powers.
Even when we do this without expectation, the creative power of our imagination is sparked into action and will very often go to work behind the scenes, helping us to somehow include more of these happy moments in our everyday lives.
All we need to do is ask the question!
But how often do we give any thought to what we’d actually love to do?
It takes a just one second to consider, yet it can reveal vital clues about our true selves – those magnificent versions of us that are often dormant in the face of life’s demands.
Asking this question is one way to discover those inklings, those yearnings and longings within us that are calling to be expressed.
They’re not there by accident. They have a reason, a purpose.
They could even be the signposts to the unique and brilliant work that we are here on this planet to do.
So, in the interests of discovering your greatest self, as well as tapping into that creative power within you, I invite you to make a habit of asking yourself;
What would I love to do today?
You don’t need to actually do it.
You don’t need to know how to do, or if it’s even possible.
You just need to listen to the whispers, to feel the nudges, to make space for the voice of your innermost callings.
After all, how can we create the kind of lives we want to live if we never give any attention to what we actually want?
Regularly asking this question is a way to build that muscle, to tap into our delights and inclinations – with no agenda other than just thinking about what would be lovely.
And as a bonus side-effect, when we give some attention to our inner ‘nudges’, we access a certain level of contentment that can help us perform better, enjoy more health and even feel more patience and kindness towards those around us.
So, for your health, your productivity and your loved ones – feel free to give some thought to this idea, as often as you like.
And then be prepared for the delightful and surprising ways those ‘impossible’ pleasures begin to appear in your life…
