“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.” –Henry David Thoreau
I remember a time when I was focused. I was confident and so sure of my short & long-term goals. It never mattered where I was because I knew where I was going. But somewhere along the way I lost track of my pursuit and became complacent with mundane.
The rhythm and routine of my life was monotonous: Wake up (late), rush to get ready, go to work, work, leave for home, plan to do things that I’ll never get around to because I’m tired, promise myself I will do them tomorrow and then fall asleep. Every day became just another day.
I thought back to a time when I used to rise before the sun because I was sooooo excited about life, excited about my dreams and shaping myself into the person I was born to be. I can’t remember the last day I truly felt like that.
It’s kind of like being a sportsman at the top of your game and one day you get injured and now you’re just sitting there watching other people play the game. It’s hard. You know what it feels like to be on the field or the court and you will do what ever it takes to get back there because watching the game from the sidelines is a beast.
So as i sit here, I write a new set of goals from extreme short term (like do two maybe four push-ups before i sleep tonight) to extreme long term goals (see roo’s diary for details)…. kidding.
It’s time to get back in the game! Who’s with me?
