I feel as if I am becoming a stranger to myself.
There are so many things that I want to accomplish and I feel like I don’t know how to accomplish any of them. And I am so tired.
So, I’d like to list some goals of mine. Things I would like to focus on as the year comes to a close. Because it’s almost December. And in December, I’ll be starting to think about goals for the new year. Those pesky resolutions that come every year.
Goal #1: Finish NaNoWriMo. I am behind. I have never been at this point and not had 50,000 words. I knew that this year would be hard. But I need to stay focused and get this story down. I know that I can. I just have to do it.
Goal #2: Stay afloat at school. Teaching is a calling. And I still believe that it is my calling, but it’s hard starting over. And some days I feel like I”m barely staying afloat. But I know that I can do it and get through and do well. I want to do well.
Goal #3: Do the run streak that begins tomorrow. One mile a day. At least. Until January 1st. It will get me back in shape. It will make me happy. It will let me smile.
Goal #4: Related. A half hour of yoga every day. This does not need to be consecutive. So, it could be in the morning and the evening. Just a half hour. Both this goal and goal #3 are important to me because I’ve let my health slip. And I know that when I work out, I eat better and want to eat better. And when I do that I have more energy for my other goals. And this will get me about 45 minutes of a workout every single day. And that is a good goal for now.
Goal #5: Continue writing here. Every weekday. And keep writing for myself. Writing is a passion of mine. And maybe someday, I will be able to turn it into something more. We will see. But for now, maintaining this blog is a priority. And I enjoy having it as a priority.
I have many more. So many dreams and so many things I want to accomplish. But I think that this is what I’d like to focus on for December. And the rest of November. And they are good goals to have. Things to help me remember who I am. And enjoy myself. And that is important. Especially for me.
A quick post will come tomorrow – even though I know that it is Thanksgiving – it will probably even be written today at some point, so I can just enjoy my Thanksgiving Day (although writing is enjoyable).
Enjoy your day all!
