It’s a big ask but let’s pose it any way.
What’s a project that you’d love to take on that would contribute towards your potential?
I’m not talking unrealistic, but simply something that you’d love to work on?
“... working toward a meaningful life goal is one of the most important strategies for becoming lastingly happier.” ~ Sonja Lyubomirsky
Professor Lyubomirsky goes on to share this….
“In 1932, weighed down by the sorrows and agonies of his self-absorbed and aimless clients, an Australian psychiatrist named W. Béran Wolfe summed up his philosophy like this: ‘If you observe a really happy man you will find him building a boat, writing a symphony, educating his son, growing double dahlias in his garden, or looking for dinosaur eggs in the Gobi Desert.’ He was right. People who strive for something personally significant, whether it’s learning a new craft, changing careers, or raising moral children, are far happier than those who don’t have strong dreams or aspirations. Find a happy person, and you will find a project.”
Regardless of gender positionality (as the above example was written almost 100 years ago) what’s a project that could engage you in life? Something you’d love to get absorbed in?
Even if you just start browsing possibilities for now…just to get your toes wet - could be worth it.
