I found my goal list I wrote for our year in Corvallis today. I wrote this a few weeks before we moved. This list has been on my mind throughout our time here but I kind of lost track of it over the last month. But I had been giving a lot to my goals this morning and decided to go looking for my goal list. It felt so good to go through this and update all the things I have accomplished. Before I went through my list I had been feeling like I hadn’t done much to attain these goals but after going through it I realized I had actually accomplished 8 out of the 13 things!
I think goals are very important. Sometimes I don’t like to write down goals for myself because I am worried I won’t follow through with them and then it will just make me feel bad! Have you ever felt that way? But that is exactly why we need to write them (well not the feeling bad part). But I believe it is so important to make goals for ourselves and write them down because they are a constant reminder of the direction we would like to take in our lives. Also, if you are anything like me, you know it also feels good to be able to check things off your list. Have you ever wrote something on your list you have already done just so you can check it off? I definitely have!
Another important thing to do when working through your goals is take time to re-evaluate your goals. Sometimes as we start working through out goals we realize some of them aren’t important to us anymore or maybe they just aren’t applicable. That is ok! When I started going through my list, I realized there were a few things I didn’t want to do anymore but there were also a couple things I wanted to add to my list. It felt good to re-evaluate and focus on where I want to go in the next couple of months.
Well, thank you for listening to my thoughts. I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday! It is almost the weekend!!
