i m working on my goals… 6 years ago
People doing thisSee everyone
How I did it: This is more of an ongoing "philosophy of life" than it is an actual measurable goal that you can finish. I do it a day at a time. I marked it as completed because I am now at a good place in my life (not so when I wrote this goal). I just took a good look at my life back then, decided that there were things about it that had to change, knew that changing those things was going to be difficult and even painful, but then again, what change isn't? So I just took the necessary steps to change my life. Then I was stuck for a while in a sort of "so what now?" And I realized that I could do ANYTHING I WANTED. So I worked for a year, saving as much money as I could, quit my job, decluttered my life, applied for a Master's in Spain, moved to Barcelona to pursue my life-long love of literature, and made many small changes to accompany those big changes.

I invited a friend to go with me to 3 different events. They all happen to occur this week. She said she wanted to go. And then about two weeks ago, she emailed to say that she was invited to go to Vegas with a co-worker. That’s fine and dandy, but the trip essentially meant she’d miss ALL THREE things she said she’d be up for doing with me. I felt a little stiffed, especially considering that she’d just gone to Vegas and will probably go again soon.
But I was determined not to let her ruin MY plans. I talk myself out of enough things and regret it later. And often if there isn’t someone around to go to the movies with or whatever, I will just stay home. But I was determined to go forward.
I bought one ticket to the Coldplay concert, so I will be seeing them tonight. By myself. But that’s okay. I can’t go to the second event (long story), but that’s okay. I can try again next month. The third event is a Feist concert at the Hollywood Bowl. I bought two tickets and just hoped I’d find someone else who wanted to go – and what do you know? On Saturday I did!!
So I’m excited for this week, and excited about that fact that I didn’t allow someone else to ruin my plans and that I went ahead with what I wanted to do. I just have to try hard tonight to not dwell on the fact that I’m by myself! 6 years ago
fazer em vez de querer… em vez de pensar como podia ter sido, fazer com que seja, não adiar e não esperar. Acreditar que se quero fazer uma coisa é pq é importante para mim. 6 years ago
