Two things I’ve discovered:
- What I want as a result of reviewing my goals: I want a life that’s so custom fit to me that I am the only one to whom it can belong.
- I know that sounds really silly on the surface because it’s my life and of course I’m going to live it to suit me! Maybe it’s just me, thought, but I’ve noticed small areas of my life where I think I crafted it for myself but yet they’re very subtly skewed to take into account close friends’ and family’s opinions, what’s culturally acceptable, and what’s “age appropriate”.
I thought I left that junk on the school playground years ago!
Oh well. Better to recognize it now than when my life is all said and done; then it’s way too late to do anything about it!
I’m still thinking through the categories of goals and adding this discovery to the mix. When I think of categories and sub-categories I’m running them by the question: is this something I think is important and crucial to a good life or is it what others’ are telling me I should think is important?
How about you–how are you doing? What interesting things have you discovered? Let me know in the comments section below!
Feel free to pass this post along to a friend. Thanks!
