I’m more of a “all over the place person”. I have so many interests and passions, that I often find myself losing focus.
I get easily distracted by problems and projects. I get side-tracked by interesting projects that pop up. Or I have little flits of inspiration that take up large amounts of time.
I think if I didn’t practice any self-discipline, I’d find myself 5 years down the track, thinking, “Huh? Where’d my life go? What did I do with my time?”
So I believe in setting personal and life goals.
Throughout 2008, I’ve made it a point to reflect and work on them every month. And I must say, I’ve found it to be very fulfilling and rewarding.
My goals for the new year are [still] very simple.
Take care of myself. Eat well. Live well. Exercise. Have time for myself. Balance my activities. Manage my stress and anxiety.
Take care of my marriage. Love my husband. Make time for him. Talk. Laugh. Be honest. Men need affection, consideration and alone time too.
Take care of my children. Have alone time with each of my kids. Talk to them. Listen to them. Enjoy them. Create happy experiences for them.
Be part of my community. Make time for friends. Give my time to helping others. Organise gatherings.
I do have a few more ambitious goals. But these take second place to the ones mentioned above.
1) Deliver my third baby naturally, and recover a life of normality in a timely manner!
2) Develop and dedicate a bit more time and energy to this blog. Hopefully it will become my part time job soon!
3) Run in a marathon of some sort.
4) Learn how to play the piano.
5) Learn to speak Chinese.
Ok… that will do for now!
I’ll let you know how I do.
