Being Brilliant

Try this. Remain still, close your eyes and concentrate on the 20 items you performed brilliantly yesterday. Big tasks, little tasks, - any task. Here is the important part; the tasks need to be solely for you. Not for your significant other, or child or parent, you need to focus only on you.

I love this assignment. Truth be told there are not 20 tasks that I do on a daily basis that are only for me. So let us focus on what I did brilliantly over the past week and how I rewarded myself.

Brilliant Task: Play with my new Wii Fit that I received for my birthday. I used my Wii Fit for 58 minutes. I am happy to report that my Wii Fit age is 31! Whoo Whee!

Reward: I need to relax after working out, so that evening I decided that we needed to go out for dinner and watch a movie.

Brilliant Task: With the help of a good friend, I updated my blog site. I chose the template and all the words are mine, while my friend did all the rest.

Reward: A beautiful new site that embraces peace, love, creativity and fun.

Brilliant Task: Each day of the past week, I connected with others on Twitter, through Tweets and Re-Tweets.

Reward: My love for my Twitter community grows each day. I am filled with such happiness. What a fantastic reward.

Brilliant Task: I purchased two new books. 1. Bad Mother by Ayelet Waldman and 2. Twilight Director’s Notebook by Catherine Hardwicke.

Reward: Over the course of the next few weeks I can enjoy my books at my leisure.

Brilliant Task: Added three new apps to my iPhone. Fiction Classics, Shortcovers, and Cooking Mama.

Reward: What a pleasure to immerse my self in a fictional classic like Frankenstein, or Hound of The Baskervilles, perfectly displayed on my iPhone.

Shortcovers, provides wonderfully written excerpts from current fiction and non-fiction titles. I am able to receive insight into what could be my next favourite book.

Cooking Mama, a game that washes away all of my stress and allows me to spend a few minutes laughing and playing a game that focuses on the joy of cooking.

Brilliant Task: Competing this assignment submitted by my Life Coach Tia Singh. (aka @TiaSparkles on Twitter)

Reward: Smiling and loving all the big and little tasks that I centered on me.

Today I realized the rationale of the exercise. The focus was not on the 20 items, but rather to shift my focus on me and what brought me joy through my week.
