Musings on Satisfaction and Accomplishment
Friday, December 07, 2012
I am looking for a sense of satisfaction, of accomplishment.
Eating won’t do it.
Shopping won’t do it.
Sometimes exercise – especially cardio does it. Today is an “off” day in my training to run a 10K in under an hour. Been feeling anxious, I think – had been looking forward to ‘treating’ it with exercise – until I realized I’m supposed to take the day off before a long run day.
The BLC is over for now – no challenges there to go for. Can’t work on the 2012 exercise miles challenge today.
Today was payday (every Friday is) – dealing with finances wasn’t satisfying.
Dishes, laundry, housework are never satisfying to me.
Yes, I am a recovering perfectionist, good student, etc., etc., etc. But now I am 47 – and I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.
Not sure where to find the satisfaction, the accomplishment.
Maybe in crafting? Carving rubber stamps? Making artist trading cards/LTC’s? Making greeting cards? Scrapbooking?
I just know there is much more to this issue for me. Realizing that stuffing food and shopping don’t ‘do it” for me is big. Sometimes I even remember and act (or choose to not act!) based on that knowledge – some days I do better than others.
I’m going to start with preparing healthy food, working on my Other Goals here on SP.
I wish you all much satisfaction and feelings of accomplishment!
