I’m reading ‘The Desire Map – a guide to creating goals with soul’ by my good friend Danielle LaPorte. It’s remarkable. It’s illuminating … for Heart Life Lenses™ & anyone with a heart or who wants to rediscover their heart.
As someone who’s very good at sucking it up, surging forward & getting on with it, it’s a relief to stop & pay attention to how I’m actually feeling. Oh bliss. Oh joy.
‘Knowing how you want to feel is the most potent clarity you can have. Generating those feelings is the most powerful thing you can do with your life,’ says Danielle.
‘… you need to stay in motion in order to get from one state to the next, constantly referring to your inner GPS of feelings. “Right now I’m traveling south on Despair Highway, which means I’m about nine hundred miles away from Joy. I better take the off ramp to Courage.” And pretty soon possibly in an instant, you’ll be right where you want to be.’
Inner GPS of feelings.
