Episode 137 – Future Thinking: Who do I truly want to be?

Over the next couple of episodes, Lucinda and Mariëlle will be diving into the topic of Future Thinking and how it can benefit our creative lives. During this episode, Mariëlle will guide you into meditation to find out what you truly want so you can start working towards your truest desire today.

Here’s what came up during the episode:

  • Lucinda is meeting her writing goals, including writing an hour a day when on holiday!
  • Mariëlle and Lucinda talk about their vision boards and that it’s not necessarily about achieving what’s on your board but moving towards it
  • When Mariëlle mentions it can be hard to get back to writing on Monday because she doesn’t write fiction on weekends, Lucinda throws Mariëlle’s own advice back at her by suggesting she doesn’t have to do the full hour…
  • Properly schooled, Mariëlle then commits to at least looking at where she was in the story on Saturdays and Sundays so the story stays fresh in her mind
  • After the meditation, Lucinda shares what came up for her during, which felt like the exact opposite of what she’d experienced last time – but was it? 

Next episode, Mariëlle will do one final Future Thinking meditation about where you truly want to in the future and how to get there.
