You all know that I'm a very goal-oriented and a list-making person. And those of you who have been with me long enough, know that I create yearly goals every New Year. And try to work on them.
But not this year. It's been a while since I updated. I actually looked through my goals yesterday and smiled. So many things have changed since January. So many things are not important any more...
I did achieve some of these goals. I finally joined Facebook (please like me if you haven't already. Thank you!!). It took me a looong time. We also keep working on organizing our lives and cutting food waste.
But most of these goals became irrelevant, especially due to recent changes in our lives. And others, like reading 50 books this year, just seem funny now. I doubt I will read that many books but, honestly, I stopped counting months ago. Who cares how many I've read as long as I enjoy reading? I don't know what I was thinking when I created this goal. I'm not going to push myself to read more books just to achieve a certain amount. I'm gonna do it because I love it :)
Now I want to concentrate on small goals. Short and sweet. Mostly, on how to live from one week to another. I want to be able to progress and push myself but not for the sake of reaching some magic number.
Has it ever happened to you that you created certain goals/resolutions that you wanted to achieve and then realized that they don't really make sense any more?
