Do you remember my post about achieving my goals? I had written about creating categories for my goals and I created a chart of “if you do this you get a sticker.” You don’t; don’t worry, neither do I. But the post is here if you would like to read it.
I’m not saying I didn’t fill in my pie charts; I looked them over and filled them in. They just never were on my mind during the day.
Also I realized as I filled in the pie charts that I am quite harsh on myself. For example, I was critical of myself on blogging even though I am keeping up with my writing. I’m trying with the new Facebook page, and I’m working at it each day. But, I am thinking of what I haven’t done, and what I’ve been hoping to do. So I don’t fill in the chart despite doing well.
Who isn’t harsh on themselves? We all are are worst critics.
Most people set goals in January then slow down, I do the opposite. In February there is a lot to look forward to, but there is also a lot of unknown to come in February. Story of my life. There are three things this month that are my main goals: Taking care of myself which includes eating right and not going to bed with my make up on. Having better content for blog posts. The third thing is to do more story writing. I have a lot of stories on my mind that I want to tell so I made a list of places to send them. I’m working on places to pitch ideas. And that really is what 2017 will be for me – going out of my comfort zone and not second guessing myself.
I feel that “going for it” feeling for February. Of course as I write this I start to think, second guess, and doubt myself. However, there is more behind this determination in me then there was in January. I think it’s because at the end of February I’ll be back in Ireland.
