I actually made some changes! And I added some things! and checked some things off! Woohoo!

I came in with the idea that I would mark complete my goal to “describe things I love about Japan.” But I couldn’t do it. I reread the entries and felt like I would lose that if I let go of the goal. I think I am a hoarder of memories…
I made up my mind that once I print all those entries, maybe I can let the goal go.
There are so many goals that have been on my list for several years and that I feel define me…even if I’ll never do them.
On the other hand, there are some that I really could accomplish if I actually put my mind to it.
I’m going to try to focus on one goal at a time, whether that is to complete it or decide it will never be completed. Hopefully, I’ll be left with a list of things I really want to do and really can do…
There are many things on the list that are just not really goals so much as dreams which is ok…except that there may be nothing I can do to actually work toward achieving those goals. And obviously there are things that I have completed…I just can’t bring myself to check some of them off because I didn’t want to be done anyway. I didn’t want to leave Japan so I have a hard time rushing to finish living there. It feels like if I check that off, then I’ve closed that chapter in my life that I still don’t feel I’m done with…
And finally, I need to work on some things that I actually can complete and then add some goals that I work on anyway but aren’t articulated here. Simplify.
Anyway, expect some changes.
