Do you have a unique idea in the back of your mind that you want to bring out into the world? How long has that idea just been in the back of your mind?

This week is the week you start to manifest it into reality.

The world is unpredictable right now, so there is no better time to start something new - but that doesn’t mean getting started is easy!

Tune in to source inspiration and discover step one.

If you start small, the rest is easy.


[00:39] Welcome to Yoga Girl Daily, happy Monday, and welcome to our intention setting practice of this week. I hope you've had a really good weekend. I hope you feel ready for the week ahead. I sure am. This week, I have an intention that's pretty specific that's going to involve some action from all of our parts. I know so many of us right now are feeling a little bit unanchored. We're feeling a little bit ungrounded. Life has thrown us so many curve balls lately. We are a bit scattered, I think, in our endeavours, in our actions, in our ways of being inspired and our intentions as well. And a lot of the work that so many of us are doing right now is rebuilding things that fell apart this year in different ways. And what I want to set an intention around this week is to start a new project that you've had on the horizon for a while. To source the inspiration that you need to get started. Do you know what I'm talking about? You know, that thing that you've been wanting to create for a while, it's like in the back of your head, as this idea that you have, that you know, you want to put into action or, you know, it's this creative endeavour that you have in the back of your mind as something that one day, you know you want to bring out into the world.

[02:01] I think we all have so many of those creative projects; business ideas, pieces of art, you know, new practices, things, trips, things we want to do and put out into this world that just end up lingering in the back of our minds for a really long time. Maybe they even stay there forever. And right now, you know, in terms of where we are in the world with so many things having shifted, it is a really good time to pick up something new, you know, to change the way you've done things in the past and to start up a project that maybe you thought was only a dream and would remain a dream forever. So meaning, you know, if you've had a dream to write a book, this is the week you start on your very first chapter. If you've had a dream of opening your own business, okay, this is the week you sit down and you start writing down some action items in terms of getting started.

[02:51] If you've had a dream of learning something new or starting a new education, well then, this week is the week you begin that process enrollment. So, I'm not saying to take everything on at once and to complete or finish anything, but this is the week we start that project that leads to that dream that we want to fulfill eventually Taking those steps towards getting started. Step number one is this week, and sometimes we need to source some inspiration to get there. So, having a week right now to dedicate yourself to things that inspire you, things that, you know, bring you inspiration. If that's spending time in nature or going to the ocean or talking to a person that is really inspirational for you or reading books that inspire you, or, you know, just getting creative in different ways to inspire those creative juices so that we can get started and take that first step toward that project.

[03:46] So, this week I will look for inspiration and start a new endeavour. This week, I will look for inspiration and start a new endeavour. And that new endeavour is going to mean totally different things to each of us. I have a little endeavour of my own, which is of course, why I want to set this intention this week. There's something that I've been wanting to create for a long time. I've talked about it for a long time. I've had it in the back of my mind for a long time, but there is some creativity in play or that's a big part of this thing I want to create. And I just haven't felt inspired enough to sit down and get started. So I'm sensing this deep personal need right now to get inspired so that I can start to take the first steps to get this thing happening.

[04:30] And once I start, I know the rest is going to be easy, right? It's almost like getting to the starting line, like that's the challenging part and the once we're going, you know, new opportunities, new tasks, new things to do are going to show themselves one at a time. So, I would love to invite you this week to do what you can to get really inspired and then take that first step toward that project, that thing that you've been wanting to realize for a long time. And whatever that endeavour is, make sure it's something that really resonates with your heart. Something that's going to bring you joy along the way, right? And not just the idea of fulfilling some task, but something joyful, something that genuinely moves and inspires your heart and your soul. Thank you for setting this kind of specific intention with me this week. I hope you do have an endeavour that you want to get started on. It doesn't have to be huge. It can be something small, but let's get creative because we know aligning ourselves with that creative spirit is going to make us feel good all week long. Thanks for listening. Yoga Girl Daily will be back tomorrow.
