Inner Growth Word of the Day: Desire
Google’s Dictionary/Search definition: (n.) 1. a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen.
Desire in a sentence: Desire is fueled by things, people or ideas that make one’s heart light up like a flame.
Desire in action: When desire is at its highest the drive to do more is too. It can lead you to a feeling of euphoria and hope when acting to achieve your desires.
Desire and inner growth: When you think about your desires it can help you understand what you want most in life, which can lead you to a visual of who you want to be too. Since inner growth is all about you, knowing your desires equals knowing what you want to personally achieve internally, as well as externally.
Desire and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: What are my desires? Why are they important to me? What will I do and how will I react if I can’t obtain them? Are there any desires that I used to have that I no longer have? If so, why did this happen? Are my desires my own or did someone else influence them?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with desire at the center and list or put around it all the words that come to mind when you think of the word itself (not your desires). Then make a list or word bubble for your personal desires. From the list with your personal desires pick one of them and write two short stories; in one story you obtain that desire and the other you don’t. Then take a look at the words you associate to the word desire and see if the ways your stories flow match your idea of desire.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings when it comes to desire itself, then the feelings you have in regards to your personal desires. Do they match? Do they bring you up or down? Allow your feelings to express themselves while you ask yourself why you feel how you feel about desire and your own desires.
