You would have loved today’s post.
It was about goal setting and the fact that it’s kinda crappy, and (apparently) it’s far better instead to establish habits to get us to where we need to go. I was referencing a Mark Manson post, though realised later I somehow confused two separate posts (and topics) as MY post went on to talk about how to identify priorities and make decisions and talked about the importance of ‘regret’ in whatever it is we’re weighing up.
I eventually managed to tie the two themes together in some vaguely rational way but… haven’t yet finished that post. Perhaps I won’t.
Instead (yesterday) I travelled to my mother’s and she’s been having internet issues so… I ran out of time and the motivation to better organise those thoughts in my little mind.
And in reality – if I’m being honest, which I try to be (or at least I used to) – I mostly feel a bit like this.
I saw the image on my friend Carla’s Instagram feed the other day and had one of those Meg Ryan When Harry Met Sally, ‘YES YES YES’ moments.
I know my life is a dream compared to many. Believe me… I know I should be more grateful for everything I have and everything I’ve done.
But there are moments of change when we’re on the precipice and it all feels like it’s a bit too much.
I tend to deal with that by writing about it… most of the time.
I try to rationalise with myself. I try to plan… so I feel in control and don’t feel too anxious or start to panic. But it doesn’t always work.
So there you have it. Me. Now.
What about you? How’s your 2019 shaping up?
