I’m sitting in Cub 3’s room waiting for her to fall asleep so that I can get some school and house work done. This isn’t my normal routine during the week. PB usually sits with Cub 3 until she falls asleep, but it’s bible study night and he isn’t here yet. So, Cub 3 will more than likely stay awake until he gets here to relieve me, but I’m still going through the motions of making her go to bed even though she’s fighting to stay awake until she hears him come through the door.
I wanted to start working on a new goal tonight, but I still have a lot on my To Do list before I can even think about it. My new goal (like I really need to add one more thing to my plate) is to run a 5K race this spring with some other co-workers from Malcolm. I’ve convinced myself that if I stick to a good training program, I’ll be ready to run this race by April. Now, I’ve never been the type to just go out for a run. A walk? No problem! But, to go out for a jog on my own just because I want to? Never!
My point in sharing this with everyone is to jump on the importance of having goals. Setting goals (and reaching them) gives you direction. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Five years? Next year? You should have some goals that are outrageous – like becoming a bazillionaire. You should have some realistic, obtainable goals – like saving enough money to add on four extra days to your vacation. You should also have some easy goals – like getting out the door and to work on time tomorrow morning. If you’re just living each day without a game plan, you’re just waisting your days away…and that’s just sad.
I’ll let you know if I reach this new, obtainable goal in a couple of months!
Peace and Blessings!
