Have you ever sat down and jotted a list of ideas--Ideas about literally everything and anything?
Have you jotted down, say, a list of 20 ideas every day?
This is a new habit I picked up recently. I was inspired to do it after reading an article on BuzzFeed that had a list of habits to help you drastically change your life in 5 years (so many lists...). The main purpose of the 20-Ideas-A-Day thing is for you to clear your mind and to perhaps discover something about yourself you were not aware of before...and perhaps to uncover buried treasure. And, by "buried treasure," I mean mental treasure.
Basically, revolutionary, creative, unprecedented ideas of how you feel you can change the world. The imaginary light bulb may go off and you'll suddenly realize how you will want to leave your print on the world after your precious time on Earth is over.
The ideas you write down can lead you to find out what certain career you want to make for yourself. They can set you on a path to complete self-knowledge (which will probably be a very long path, but definitely one worth traveling on). They can even launch you on a series of adventures where you sample on new experiences that challenge the way you think and feel about the world around you.
Or, maybe not. You will never know until you try.
So, sit down when you have some free time, when you are dressed in your boyfriend's pajama pants or after you have put the kids to bed. Take out a pen and paper/journal, and jot down 20 ideas about anything. Literally anything. This is probably one of the few chances you have in your daily life to really let your intuition be the dominant voice, so really take advantage of it! Do this every day, or at least as often as you can (for example, I do it when I'm on the bus or at home at the end of the day). Maybe you have buried treasure you have yet to dig out from the sand (or mud, however you want to imagine the metaphor)... :)
