Well after publishing the very first episode last week, I received a lot of encouraging and kind comments that made me even more determined to continue. I' m so excited for each and every episode of this podcast, and you can' t imagine how many topics are there, In my mind map for a MamaNest academy, waiting to be heard by you moms. I just couldn' t pick one for this episode and I thought a lot of them are worth speaking up early in this podcast, but eventually I could settle on and control my enthusiasm, and I bet I picked out a winner. Basically, I categorized all of the knowledge and wisdom that it want to share with you into seven groups that are core values in MamaNest and, in my point of view our success pillars, to establish a well structured, contemporary motherhood toolkit for creating a pleasant and an gratified life experience, the seven legs that are mentioned in the podcast intro. I mean productivity, parenting, family wellness, minimalism, Mindfulness, environmental awareness and financial consciousness, and this week' s topic is a foundation for all of these pillars, with a focus on mindfulness. the early stage phase That is almost always overlooked in our lives. I mean our vision, our perspective. and wait a minute. did I mention that it' s a complimentary topic for my...

...introduction episode? because when I define my mission as" to help you be your best self", then a question might pop up that So, who is this best self? Have we specified her framework? now, Let me introduce you to your best self mom she' s sitting at a table with you now. exactly in front of you staring at you and you' re going to have a cup of tea together and chat with her to recognize her, interpret her. because when you don' t know who you want to become to, who is your best self? What are her traits? What are her perspectives in life? Then, How can you turn into her? How can you be her? after this lengthy preface, Let me clarify that we ' re going to characterize our best selves. in fact, we' re going to determine all our dreams, because our dreams portray our future selves, it' s powerful to gain clarity in our dreams and goals. Writing them down is the first step to get our dreams power. setting a vision for our life creates the energy and will to make change happen. It inspires us to persist, to be committed to our ideal future self and to give our best. and in next week' s episode, we' re going to set a personal growth plan towards achieving our dreams, towards converting to our ultimate best self. With the help of the Vision we arrive at the end of this episode, because we don' t want this dream planning time be a waste of time, we need actionable steps that are aligned with our big picture and life. Basically, this whole process of putting down my goals, planning and tracking to gain them and keeping the journal, is so appealing to me. unbelievably gives me a sense of relief and Calms Down My Occupied Mind. Journal writing, planning and goal setting is truly my character flow. You can...

...call me" planning queen" by the way, because I did it throughout my life and finally, by adopting a pragmatic perspective, I set a simple six step system for me to drive practical sages. That row me towards my best self definition, that are making my dreams come true, and I want to share it with you hear in this episode and the one which is going to publish next week. So here we go mom, let' s unbox the system. step one:" dream elicitation", step two:" writing a letter to our future best self", step Three:" adopting a positive mindset", step four:" setting a personal growth plan", step five: " committing to our best future self" and step six:" tracking our progress." In the first step, we craft a bucket list. I recommend a yearly version if you' re just starting, it doesn' t matter if today is not the first day of the week, month or year. We want to imagine ourselves one year from now. Remember you can always go back and add into your bucket list. It' s not a one and done thing, and it' s actually great to keep in mind to flip back to this list as your setting your monthly plans, and if you write it down and it doesn' t happen, guess what? it' s not a failure, because God' s timeline differs from our time line and basically some dreams are truly out of control and it shouldn' t stop us and one terminal point is that:" remember, you are allowed to dream Mama!" you have the permission to write down the dreams that are in your heart and mind and your authorized to mess up your paper. Oftentimes doubt kills out our dreams before you even have the chance to speak them out. before they have the opportunity to arrive on our paper. But no! don' t let that happen. for me personally, I visualized and saw me recording this podcast some day. that time I was so skeptical. Am I qualified to say all this stuff? but if God puts a dream in our heart, then he didn' t mean to jest us. He did it so that we can see it accomplished. some of the Times. God didn' t pick you because you' re super qualified, sometimes God chooses the opposite and through the testimony of watching you realize that dream, God is going to get the glory and it' s important to give God the glory, and my number one tip on creating a great dream list is asking wonderful questions from...

...yourself. In fact, the quality of our lives is defined by the quality of questions We ask ourselves, you know enough about yourself, to have a pretty good idea of what it will take to live the life you desire. Your mind can quickly give you an accurate image of a person you need to become to create the change you desire. All you need to do is... ask. once you answer these questions you can begin living as that person today, you don' t have to wait. You can think, act and adopt the beliefs of your future self Now, are you ready mom? open up your planner or simple note book. pour a cup of tea, say hello to your future best self on the other side of the table and be ready to have a friendly conversation with her. let' s narrate her. Just take a deep breath, I' m going to read some questions out loud, and I want you to just put down the answers. in the midst of these questions, You might need to pause the podcast and think more, that' s okay feel free. I do encourage you to set some time for that. Okay mom, say hello to your future best self and tell her how pleased you are to meet her. first of all ask her : What is her spiritual state? how good she feels in her relationship with God? how much reliance she gives from God? How pure she perceives her attachment to God? and what are her values in life? Ask from your best self, What was the most honored accomplishment of her in the last year? the most important, vital, valuable, tell her to explain it to you now inquire about the moment, event or totally an experience that sparks so much joy within. asked her What was the time that she was laying in...

...her bed and she was so excited and couldn' t sleep because something that makes her so happy was going to happen tomorrow. What was that? now, ask her a unique memory she made with her family last year. may be a pleasurable trip, a family reunion, a sentimental experience of hugging and kissing her mother and father' s hands. What? let' s see How does your best self who is sitting in front of you feel in her marriage. Tell her to give you exact qualities of her romantic life. How delightful were her one and one moment with her partner? ask her about her maternal mentality. How is her connection with her baby now? tell her to explain the positive bond she fostered with her kid. How enough she thinks is she for her child? request her to tell about her joyful, gentle motherhood journey. by the way, Maybe she is now a mother to another baby, don' t hesitate to ask. what is her ideal family structure? and perhaps what is the name of the new born baby If you' re curious to know what did your best self do for her self development Last year? the book you read, the stuff she learned, unique experiences She had. what? ask her how productive she was and how beautifully she could manage her time to be able to fulfill her calls inside and outside of motherhood? How great was she at balancing her work and family life? now pour another cup of tea for both of you and continue. Let' s see how...

...energetic and healthy she is. Maybe she changed her mindset around food and Diet or perhaps cultivated a regular exercise routine. Ask her to tell you about her sense of physical health. Ask Your future self to tell you about her dream career, to define you the best things that happened in her profession last year. How successful was she in her job? Let' s see what financial goals your best self hit last year, that was so life changing and peaceful. Maybe she became debt free or she could finally learn how to budget shop and manage her finance. Perhaps she made some amount of money and also saved some for rainy days, or she bought the house of her dreams. Ask her about her social life. Did she communicate with like minded people around her? How was she enjoying her social existence? How fruitful were her social interactions? basically asked her to tell you about her contributions to society and the way she was empathetic towards others. What are the activities, hobbies and generally self care things your future self did for herself, That made her feel happier, healthier more precious and in general, made her feel satisfied, get some information and how aware and conscious was she about the environment last year. Ask Her to describe Her positive behaviors in caring for the planet. Now it' s your turn. Tell her about your dream that you gave up. the dream that you gave up, but it' s just there, hasn' t gone away, keeps popping up. let' s see if she pursued any of them and ask her how she feels. keep going Mama. tell her...

...about your fears. Tell her what goals would you have, if you know you wouldn' t fail and describe your strong will to achieve them, and and say goodbye to her. Yes mom, we did it! Hopefully, you have written at least one dream, and if you have written just that one, I' m so proud of you mamma, because the first step to reach your best self is defining it, and if you think you couldn ' t well define your dreams and goals by these questions, just go ahead with the other ones, because these were just my suggestions. Now, let ' s go to the next step, step two, which is writing a letter to your future best self. But why should we write that? Well, when we' re on the hamster wheels of motherhood such busy and hectic days, we just tend to shove our greatest ideas into the back of our minds, and then we get surprised and frustrated when we realize we' re not that person we once thought we would be. Some of these dreams would the choice to stay busy Instead. the greatest benefit of a letter to future self, is the opportunity to keep reminding yourself of your vision and goals along the way. I want you to look at your responses Right now. Put Your eyes on Your words, Put Your hand on top of Your dreams and let your pencil meets the paper and start with Dear best self, dear future me, Hi. How are you doing? although I' m sure you ' re good. I see that you are a happy, confident and fulfilled mom. I can feel how cheerful and pleasant you are in your life now.

...and continue, mention all of the points you get from your conversation with her. keep writing Mama, and tell your future self that you know her perfectly and at the end, promise her that you will meet her soon. You will be her! wow, such an extraordinary experience. Wasn' t that amazing? Let' s all be thankful for the way God designed us. so imaginative, so creative and so powerful to have such a phenomenal experience. Thank you, God. Okay, Mama, fine, we' re done for today. I want you to take it seriously and do it for yourself. You never know its worthiness until You do it and then apply it in the valuable path of self development. Keep your bucket list on the letter mama till next week, because we' re going to use that to set our personal growth plan and illuminate our journey towards reaching our best selves.
