My New Year Goals
I have often wished I had a magic wand….or that remote off of the movie “Click”. Except that I wouldn’t be a greedy bonehead like Adam Sandler’s character was and abuse the power. I would however use it to pause life…pause the world…pause MY world.
Don’t get me wrong. I love my life. Well, most days.
Sure my life can be crazy and hectic and chaotic, but I will be honest… I THRIVE in chaos. As much as I long to be the woman whose life is as calm as a breath of fresh air…that is not who I am…and honestly I wouldn’t know what to do with myself.
My crazy chaotic life is not only the cause of my gray hair and anxiety…it is also the cause of my drive, my creativity, my passion. So to take that away would be a disaster.
That doesn’t mean I don’t long for peace some days. I do. In fact, I have to have it. And, since a magic remote control hasn’t found a way into my life, I have had to make some moments of peace myself. Granted, they are limited…but that makes them even more sacred and even more delicious.
As I look at my goals for 2021, I am the most surprised that they don’t really differ from my 2020 goals. The older I get, the more I realize that my goals and my successes are easy. They start with me acknowledging what makes me happy and realizing anything that stands in the way of that. Then doing more of what allows me to add to my happiness and removing the things that try to hinder that.
If 2021 (God forbid) is more of the crazy and chaotic like 2020 has been, I know that I will thrive and succeed anyway. If my focus is on what I CAN do to achieve my goals of more happy and less crappy then no matter what life throws at me I can rebound, pivot, and keep moving forward.
