Two of my biggest goals right now are to write a book and complete my 30 day social experiment. I wish I could say these are new goals for me but the truth is these are 3+ year old goals. In an effort to keep me accountable and not living in fear, I can't tell you how many times my friends and family have asked me about these goals. They have every right to ask and I do appreciate them asking but it does trigger some intense awareness when these questions are asked. I haven't been shy about declaring my goals but I am being shy about achieving them and that kills me.
We all know enough people who are all talk and no action and I do not want to be that person but I also don't want to be the person continually beating myself up because 3 years later, I still haven't achieved either goal. This morning, I found myself reflecting on this, wondering if I have been missing signs to help me reach these goals. Wondering if I'm stuck living in fear. The questions continued to come one after another until I heard my #meditation mat lesson.....
Stop spending so much time wondering if you are doing it right. Instead, be reminding yourself that you're doing the best you can. ***
My friends, personally, I don't believe in New Years resolutions but I do believe in goals. In fact, I strongly believe in always having something to work towards. Yet, like everything in life, it has to come with balance. What if one morning you wake up bound and determined to reach your goal but halfway through the day you find yourself beating yourself up because you've taken so long so reach that goal. Instead of allowing that thought to defeat your momentum to achieve try changing the thought and recognizing that all along, you've been doing the best you can and when it's time.....you'll know it's time. Ease up on the person next to you and ease up on yourself.....we are all doing the best we can.
