So what is the goal?
Thursday, May 23, 2013
OK...so this should be an easy one! Of course I would love to shed the pounds and be comfortable and looking good in just about anything. Still, when asked to write down exactly my goal it really does get tougher.
I mean, do I want to run a race and survive? Do I want to be able to keep up if I went on a trip that included a lot of walking and climbing? This makes it tough for this "fly by the seat of my pants" kind of girl.
Still, I saw a quote the other day that spoke to me. It was basically this: If you don't make a plan for yourself, someone else will. You can follow their plan, but they really don't care what you think!
I can see how so many of us, in particular women, fall for this. We essentially just follow some other person's plan.
Right now my goal is to look good and have the energy needed for my daughter's wedding in July. But honestly, I do see the need to find that other important goal to keep my driving myself forward.
My prayer will be to listen and find what will drive me on this journey to be the best I can be. I will also be looking and listening to all my Spark friends since I never know where my inspiration will come from.
