Day 3 of the Freedom Plan Blog Challenge and today we’re talking about creating a vision for the future. My vision for the future involves many, many things; but we’ll start with my Perfect Day. I wouldn’t want to do have the same routine every single day, but as far as a regular routine goes… this one is pretty darn near perfect.
It’s an early start, a little before the sun peeks her fiery head over the horizon. The house is dark and quiet, the echo of last nights visitors can only be heard in the scent of wine and whiskey, garlic and gaiety. Remembering the laughter, love and relaxed gathering of last night makes me so grateful for this life we lead.
I start with a cup of water, not exactly something that fills me with joy (just hydration) but I know it’s good for me so I just do what I’m told.
I head straight to my spot that looks out over the view towards the east. And as the sun rises to greet me, I do a short (10-15 minutes) meditation. Then onto affirmations, visualization and writing in my journal.
I round out this Miracle Morning with 10-15 minutes of yoga or stretching.
Yay, now it’s time for my favourite part of the day. Breakfast! While the bacon grills in the oven, I dash into the bathroom for a quick shower. Bacon and eggs and a coffee for breakfast while I think about what I’m going to tackle first.
More than likely, it’s writing. With a heart full of anticipation and excitement, and a head full of ideas, I spend the next few hours immersed in the joy of writing.
With an hour or so of other business to take care of (emails, social media, promoting etc) I then stop to make Ben and I a flavourful lunch full of vegetables and yumminess.
The afternoon is then ours to spend as we wish. Today we’re heading out for a ride through the bush on our mountain bikes. It’s hard, but so. much. fun! It’s almost dinner time by the time we get back to our car, so we decide to call into a pub on our way home for hearty pub meal.
In the evening we relax together. Listen to a podcast, watch a bit of netflix or read a bit.
Would your perfect day be anything like this? I wouldn’t imagine so. This is a day full of the things that are important to me: working on something that adds value to the world, getting out in nature, spending time with people I care about, working on my personal development and getting some exercise.
I’m sure I don’t need to point out what it does NOT involve (hint: long commute, going to a job, cleaning or cooking) and there’s lots and lots of other things I would like to add to it. But I’m going to do all those other things on all my other perfect days!
