I love lists
I love a good list I do. Love, look forward to, lust after…
I love writing them, adding to them, crossing items off them and I write them in abundance.
I write to-do lists in my planner, blog ideas on the back of receipts when out and about, reminders in my phone, even notes on the back of my hand!
I write lists for many reasons: gratitude lists at the end of the day, reasons I love you (to hubby), lists of things I noticed, ideas for my art journal and generic to-do lists. Hell, I even enjoy creating lists of lists I could create!
Reasons lists are amazing:
- You get to use cute stationary
- It’s easier to prioritise events written down
- You sleep better knowing your thoughts are contained on paper
- You don’t have to remember everything if it’s written down
- I enjoy writing them – pure and simple
- There’s satisfaction in seeing what you’ve crossed off and achieved
- You feel more organised and quite grown up
I’ll leave you with a list of ideas of lists you could write. You might learn something about yourself – it’s all good in the journey of self discovery.
- Write a list of 5 things you need to experience in order to have a good day (not necessarily material items)
- Compile a list declaring your values (the things you would not compromise on)
- Write down your favourite days out or experiences (fantasy or real)
- Record any compliments you are given (great to read when you’re feeling low)
- Create a list of people who you admire or have inspired you (take it one step further and write them a fan letter)
- Make a note of any quotes that are special to you (write them in your planner, post them on your mirror or frame them so you see them regularly)
- Explore all the positives that make you unique (be your own cheerleader)
Please forgive the obvious indulgence in this post, couldn’t help myself…
