This on going journey through life will never be boring for me. I have so many thoughts about where I want to be in life, career, and family, but I feel like each decision contradicts the ability to reach the other goals. I had a huge life change 4 years ago. Decided to put my big girl panties on and make some really hard, go against the grain lifestyle changes. If I thought I was resilient before then, I know I am now. But during this rebirth of self, I have developed this overwhelming desire to abandon anything that doesn’t add value, happiness, or positivity in my life. You ask, “Isn’t that a good thing?” My answer is “No. Absolutely, not!” The reason I say that is sometimes you have to go through the boring, not so happy, awkward stuff to get to the better things. I am happier because of the new attitude I’ve taken on, but I feel like I am missing out on some opportunities. Opportunities gained from sticking around a little longer and enduring the not so exciting stuff. I thought I was figuring things out after 30… Boy, was I wrong. Life is a learning experience and the sense of self is always changing. So I have come to accept my life goals will always be a moving target.
Do you need to adjust your goals to the better person you are becoming?
