Naboulove power series 5-Few power lifting Questions to assess your life control level

“At  the end of the day, the questions we ask of ourselves determine the type of people that we will become.” ― Leo Babauta

Questions, questions, questions… we hate them when they come from others & we realize that we seldom ask them to ourselves. We are engaged into daily activities, claiming to be busy & so. But really, how many times do we sit back & have that little inner interview that could help us clarify things? Like now I am just in super procrastinating mood…And really I wonder why? Moreover I feel super duper happy just for no reason, so obviously am not procrastinating out of unhappiness but maybe the crazy side of my brain is more active than it should be. Some days are like that in my Nabouworld™. I guess I am not the only one… ANYWAY when I am in discomfort I ask to myself a few set of questions that are not so easy to answer. Yeah we actually lie more to ourselves than to others. FACT. However let me just share with you & the game is yours. It’s strange how simple questions are bound to generate complicating & complicated answers…

 
1-Am I happy?
It sounds simple right. SO answer .Yes OR No .

2-Why am I happy? Why am I not happy?

Reminds me of my philosophy classes in high school with over elaborated definition of happiness. LOL. Keep it simple. Just try & pinpoints the Why yes or Why not. Is it family, work, your health, social environment etc. Make it short , straight to the point. Self diagnose your issues.

3-What is my Life purpose?
Big word again for something that could be simply stated as what would you love doing to feel alive? It is personal & if it’s your kids, your kitchen, your home or any other thing that people could judge trivial & basic , it is your life, your choices, your goals . So forget about the outside world for now & just write it down. It can be the Nobel prize for peace too. Nothing is too small & nothing is too big as long as it makes you feel worthy of living…
4- What makes me happy, Really happy? Just think about every time you have felt happy , really happy. For me I know the day I gave birth to my twins was like the happiest moment in my life. I couldn’t believe I pushed two kids out of my body. It is an overwhelming unforgettable feeling of happiness. Something less grandiose eating crunchy nuts chocolate make me smile, laugh, frill of happiness. So list your moments of happiness & what caused them…

5-What would I do If I wasn’t afraid? Lawd me God! In my Jamaican creole voice… I would go to India , learn Ayurveda, then go to Bali with my kids. And also maybe I would write erotic fiction, really hot one & sign with my own name. I would maybe move to my village home, & write all the time. I would take my kids out of conventional school & find new ways of learning for them. I sound really mad… Just list it…

6-What are my greatest fears?  Waouw not easy to really pinpoint them but mostly the fears in general are: lack of means, fear to lose a family member, fear of society’s judgment, fear of pain, fear of failure, fear of starting all over…etc. What stops us is in general fear of leaving our comfort zone. Do your own equation here mine is already giving me headaches.
7-Do I love myself? The famous Self love matter of the century. Most of the times I do, except when my clothes don’t fit me, when I make wrong choices consciously or unconsciously , when I feel like I didn’t do what I had to do when I had to… But I do enjoy & love being me with my flaws & stubbornness …

8-When did you last do something for your own pleasure? Now I am writing for my own pleasure, I am enjoying every bit of it…
9-Name 10 things I am grateful for? The good old uplifting gratitude list never lets down a low mood…I have over 100 things to be grateful for. Yeah ok I will list them eventually. Alhamdulillah (I thank Allah) for everything is my motto though.

10-what do I postpone every day?  list 3 & just do them! Men I stopped eating chocolate, started exercising, so now I have few writings to finish I have been postponing shamelessly…
11-Am I myself or am I playing a part? It depends obviously, like everybody. My staff knows me as who I show them I am, and with my kids I am trying to be a responsible mother, I try as much as I can to act in alignment with my values but sometimes life situations just force you to compromise. Just trying not to sell my soul to the devil in the name of being “normal”…Challenging ? isn’t it?
12-How far would I go for love? As far as I can bear the pain maybe… even though it is supposed to only feel good. But we ought to be realistic here. Shit happens no matter how far you go & how hard you try…
13- My Weaknesses?         List 5 points I would like to improve in my  life right now:  Eat even better, exercise even more, do more homework with the kids, be less stubborn, think more before I talk sometimes, be less sensitive over issues…Oops I listed 6…
14- Strengths, strengths…  I am fearless, creative, generous, smiley, It would require a post in itself…LOOOOL.
16-Am I  balanced in the way I relate & connect with others: friends, family, co-worker, etc.?  Whenever I am in my emotional moods, I just run away in order to avoid imbalance  in my behavior. Otherwise I try as much as I can to be fair & give as much as I receive & still do my best regardless of  the selfishness level of the person facing me. Giving back for the times when I am the selfish one…

16-Write my first steps towards change & attempt to commit to them.
What should I do to look better, be healthier, be nicer, improve my skills, learn whatever has been in my mind forever? My plan is Doing-Learning-Improving-Practicing. What is yours?

P.S reminder to self
