This has been my hardest post to write so far. I think it’s because I am looking for my next adventure and I’m stuck. I spend a lot of time checking off things I’ve wanted to accomplish.
I finished my master degree. I went on short vacation for my anniversary. I bought myself a bicycle (though it’s been over 20 years since I’ve been on one). I’ve lost over 60 pounds and am still going. I pay attention to my emotions. I treat people the way I want to be treated – with kindness and respect. I meditate. I started this blog. I applied for teaching positions – a lifelong dream. I respect time – especially how short it is. I take time for myself and take time to appreciate those around me.
Do you have a bucket list? I have always been a goal setter. And I strive to improve myself. But when I think of a bucket list, I think of grand travel or adventure ideas. I’ll have to ponder this.
For me, the hardest obstacle I have to face is my fear. But, I push through. After my ancestry research, I think it’s in my blood to keep going. I need to figure out what I want to do, what I want to change, what I want to achieve.
My biggest challenge today is finding that next thing. Naturally, being a librarian, I did a few searches about reinventing yourself. Things come up about your career, your health, your attitude, your future, and so on. So I’ll go read a few books, some online articles, and check out Pinterest for inspiration. It’s time for a new list.
While I’m finding my next big thing, I leave you with these thoughts…
This much I know:
Be grateful. Every morning. Every day.
Love yourself. Forgive yourself.
Keep Moving. Forward.
