When I started Green Embers’ Building Rome, I reminded myself that I am not very good at goal setting — that is, I set unrealistic goals that should really be broken into smaller chunks. Over the past several weeks, I have tried to do that, and have in many cases. Unfortunately, it is usually the goals that I really want to accomplish that are the ones I don’t. And it’s because they’re TOO BIG.
Following are last week’s goals:
1) Blog every day. This proved overly difficult. I even posted my new series twice because I failed to have anything better to write about. What happened to the writing, thinking Rosa?
2) Continue path to quitting smoking. I continue to cut back on the number of cigarettes I smoke each week.
3) Find new music for MP3 player (suggestions are welcome) Didn’t even try. It seems that listening to “The Band Perry” every night as I drift off to sleep for the last three months has been soothing enough, that I am not super-motivated.
4) Get 25% through my new book. I am 14% — and don’t think I’ll finish the book. It’s just not very well written and has a lot of grammatical errors which are really driving me crazy.
The “Do or Die” Goals — all the same as last week. Apparently, consistency is key.
1) Take care of all Kizzie’s needs, including play with Kizzie every day for at least 30 minutes. Done!
2) Hygiene/Self-Care. Satisfactory.
3) Take all medications as prescribed. Getting much better.
4) Eat healthfully. Relative to the diet the doctor currently has me on.
Green Embers suggests this week to “find Neverland.” Finding and celebrating that inner child. I do this a bit, because it is related to Sacred Self, but I really should do it more. So this week, I’m going to:
1) Watch “Frozen.” My niece is obsessed, my friend’s daughter is obsessed. I really think I just need to see this movie.
2) Do something about my hair. It is big, it is frizzy, and I have bangs. There must be some solution.
3) Find a quiet place, away from the realities of life. Go there at least once every day. I’m thinking more Netflix is in my future.
