Baby Steps

I have a lot of goals for the fall. I have the normal ones: get out of the house more, excersize, spend less time on my computer. But I have special ones for me to. I want to learn a new language, I want to pay more attention to my beautiful puppy, and my wonderful friends, and I want to write more. More More More. I know that it sounds ridiculous, but I don’t do it enough. It’s exhausting sometimes, even when I’m writing about something that I love and or a even a project I’m really committed to. I think I’m very blessed in that my job is something that I love (as I’m sure I’ve mentioned here before) but I get frustrated with my work sometimes too. It takes a lot of sititng on your ass all day, a lot of stagnancy. That’s hard for me sometimes. Movement and exploration are such a big part of my life and personality. So I have to learn how to move and explore with my words and my imagination. But I digress.

My fall goals all have to do with self improvement. I can only go up from here. I like to think I’ve accomplisment something important–to me, at least—because I achieved a life long goal. But I can do better and I can do more. And that’s what I’m focusing on for this fall: doing more, and doing it better. I think that’s something everyone can relate to.
