So today I was entering a giveaway where you had to comment with one of your goals for 2018 and GUESS WHAT? I couldn’t think of one. I mean, I have goals for myself but nothing that I can just write down and BAM it be an attainable goal. All of my goals are like goals within goals within goals, anyone else feel that way? I hope I’m not the only one.
I think the reason it’s so hard for me to write down a goal for myself is because I feel like I can’t have my goal handed to me like a cup of coffee.. which by the way I make my own coffee so no one hands that to me. Oh, the irony. Can I be real for a minute? I’m tired. I’m tired of taking care of little people today because my husband has been out of town for 7 straight days, so today I’m tired. I don’t feel like this every day, or even every time he’s out of town (that’s almost every week btw), but today I do and I think that is making my goals feel like a far reach. Last week I was on a roll with taking steps to reaching a goal or two but then life just decided to fall on me and I’m finding myself so unmotivated. Everything I want in my life, professionally and personally, is going to take work, investments even.
How do you stay motivated in life? What do you do consciously every day to make it through to the next step, heck, even the next day? One of my motivators these days is the scary realization that I have to enroll the twins in pre-school for the next school-year. And you know what that means? Esme will be off to school in no time and then I’m going to be left with zero babies at home and with nothing to do. Well, not nothing but that’s the scariness going on in my head right now. What should I do? Do I go back to school? Do I pay to get my nutrition certification activated? Do I start a business of my own? There are so many questions in my brain that I can’t clearly hear what I should do. And I know exactly what I should do…
Psalms 46:10 “..be still and know I am God..”
Um. Easier said than done. I guess this post is more of a way to get my thoughts down, the year is ending and something new is on the horizon. A new year with new possibilities. New mercies and new motivation. I hope a year from now I can look back at this post and smile with joy in my heart at what God has done with me.
