“I heard the lonely howl of a single siren in the distance, like a ostracized coyote on the prowl”
About a week or so ago, I wrote a bit about consistency, and how I struggled with it. Historically, unless I have a burning urge to finish some project, my completion rate on certain “dreams” of mine was abysmally low.
However, the last week has been a weird yet insightful one.
It’s been very purposeful. Almost slow. I’ve written daily which forces me to live a bit more in the present. I’ve been trying to avoid workaholism, and signing up for every shift possible.
I’ve felt a bit more centered overall. It’s been nice.
With the extra time I had to think, I had time to really think about my goals.
I heard a podcast that really gave me perspective on the things I’ve been aiming at. It made me realize that the truth is – I just don’t want those goals bad enough right now. Instead, I’m enjoying the status quo. I also need some downtime in order to cultivate the seeds and soil that my next project will grow out of.
My new goal is to be still enough to hear the voice on the inside as it tries to lead me into the next season of my life. I still believe my vision for my life is still going to come true, the path just might look a bit different than I expected.
Thinking off the top of my head of goals that I might want to add to my to-do list:
- Go to therapy for my relationship habits
- Hire a personal trainer for a year
- Take a martial art class for 6 months-1 year
- Travel to All the countries on my original goal list: Ghana, senegal, south africa, SE Asia, etc
- Figure out what kind of company I’d enjoy running
- Keep writing
Peace and Blessings,
