During the Fierce Reset retreat we discuss the question “What is Vibrant Living?” Take a moment now to ask this question, get still, and listen to the answer that pops into your head. Asking the right questions brings clarity to what an ideal life looks like. I find that many of us simply go from point A to point B with our heads down. We never stop to smell the roses and we are so focused on go-go-going. We feel the pressure to be more, to do more, to hustle harder.
Often we are living a life that isn’t our own. We internalize expectations from our parents, our partners, society, and even ourselves. We create a life that looks good externally but feels unsatisfying internally. Typically, this dissatisfaction creates feelings of being “stuck” or “wanting more” out of life.
At some point, we have to pause and reflect on the current status of our lives. We are meant to thrive, not simply survive. What does that mean? What does it mean to live a vibrant life? I challenge you to take some time today to complete the exercises and worksheet below.
