Original post about my core desired feelings can be found here.
I think, and practice around, my Core Desired Feelings fairly often. Much like my One Little Word, my CDFs have become a part of my daily life. Sometimes they headline, and sometimes they are merely hanging out just off stage. I've been thinking about revisiting the work, doing a little tune-up to see if these are still the right feelings for me right now.
Freedom - my job shifted at the end of last year (same company, different role), and the "new" gig affords me a bit more daily freedom. It's still very much a CDF, and if I'm being honest...it's one that I need to work a bit harder on. I've fought for freedom from limiting beliefs, and created freedom from a couple of toxic relationships. Baby steps.
Lightness - physical & mental lightness have been really present for me this year. I've been steadily losing weight, without real focus/effort. I've been more able to witness worry, but not get wrapped up in it. I have seen recognizable shifts in relationships when I'm able to hold them with a light touch instead of a death grip.
Ease - the most quantifiable manifestation of this CDF has been my morning routine. I ease into mornings, instead of bolting out of bed in a sprint. At least one cup of coffee is consumed while sitting & reading. I meditate every morning - even if it's only for a few minutes.
Strength - even though time & budget took me away from barre, I've still been super conscious of my physical strength. I'm getting back into the gym (company paid! yay!). I'm reminding myself that I can do hard things, but also remembering that asking for help takes strength.
