Want to stop losing your cool with those you love?

Last week we were watching the movie, Something Borrowed and in the movie over a couple of beers one of the main characters ask the guy she is with “Tomorrow you wake up and your life can be any way you want it to be, what would it look like, what would you be doing?” I immediately turned to my nearest and dearest and said “Wow, what a great question” to which he responded “Yep, I’m going to be up all night with that one”.
It is such a great question: How would you want your life to be if you could wake up tomorrow and have it be different? It is one of those great gut level questions, ask it and then think of the first thing that pops into your head. Then go a little deeper.
Would you want:
to live someplace new?
to own your home/or own multiple homes?
live in the mountains?
live at the beach?
live closer to or further from family?
a different job?
a major career change?
to go back to school?
to own your own business?
have more/less kids?
be in a significant relationship?
be out of a significant relationship?
change the quality of your relationship?
spend more quality time in your relationship?
Do something different in your spare time?
Take some time over the next few days and be curious about how you want your life to be different. And then be curious about why, and then be curious about how you can start implementing small changes in to your life now that will help you match your dream life so you can start working on living happier.
