When’s the last time you did something just for you? Got an open mind? We’ve got a few ideas.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“It’s hard to pinpoint the precise moment when we internalize others’ assessments; it’s usually not just a single experience but rather a series of moments that bruise the spirit and lead us to distrust ourselves and those around us. And then we wake up at age 17 or 25 or 37 and realize we don’t know the last time we’ve lived life only to please ourselves.” — Alicia Keys, More Myself
Today, we’re taking Alicia’s words a little further. We’ve put together five prompts to help tap into the preferences, personal faves — and even quirks — that make up your unique, inner magic. Join us in exploring them, won’t you?
Imagine yourself waking up in a soft, comfy bed without an alarm clock. You look across the room and there’s a beautiful breakfast, plated just for you. What’s on it? What flavors are on the dish?
Do you have a favorite piece of clothing? What about it feels “just right” aside from the label or the cost?
If you had a free day to get lost in any creative activity, what would you pick? Writing? Photography? Singing? Painting? A solo dance party? All of the above?
Which friends make you feel the most unguarded and seen? Who remembers your good qualities when you’re feeling like the least cool version of you? Hold ‘em in your heart for a moment. What’s that feel like?
If you had a library filled with books on any topic and a whole day to nerd out with them, what would you choose to learn about?
How was that exercise for you? Did you feel inspired, extra creative, ready to tackle something new? Let us know and share anything that popped in your mind — or lifted your vibe a little — in the comments.
