Writing Goals Positively
Sunday, May 12, 2013
Ok, I realize that I won't keep up with blogging every day. I am studying for my MFA in animation and visual effects and classes can be demanding, especially near the end of the courses. Classes end next week, and I've already submitted my final pieces. All of a sudden I feel at loose ends. I've achieved a major goal, and now I want a reward. I want to continue thinking positively so my reward will be to spend some of my newly free time reading.
My mini-goal is to focus entirely on my reading and sipping water while I read. I will put nothing else in my mouth except ice cubes.
That is my reward and a mini-goal in positive terms, and it was a bit of a challenge to write it that way. I kept wanting to say I won't eat this or that, but I find that if I think of a food or specifically write about it then I start obsessing about it and then I want to eat it. It is better for me to focus on the way that I want to be, as if the food weren't a major part of my pleasure and reward system.
I hope you will take a moment to share your goals in positive terms. I love to see them.
