I’ve been thinking about my goals for 2018. The list below is what I came up with.
To listen to my inner nudges/intuition more than I do now. I’m not very good at this. Listening to myself wasn’t encouraged when I was growing up. I would like to be more in touch with part of myself.
To be kinder to myself. I am my own worst critic. I would like to be my biggest supporter.
To heal my inner child and my soul so I can be the person I was meant to be.
To deal with my menopausal anger and see what issues come up from the past that I need to deal with and heal.
To be a good steward of my talents. I don’t really think I’m doing this right now. I’m not sure what my talents really are. I’m not really a church person, but I do believe in a higher power and I believe we are all given talents the help us evolve on our spiritual path. I want to give myself the time and space to explore what my talents might be.
To find what makes me happy job wise. I like my job and I like the people I work with, but I don’t feel I can express who I really am at my job or figure out what my talents really are. I make good money, but working 10 hours a day doing something that doesn’t fulfill my soul doesn’t work for me anymore. I would like to find my purpose and make a living at that. I realize that may be take longer than 2018, but at least I can start thinking about it and possibly make little changes.
To learn more about the stuff that interests me. Past lives, Kundalini and chakras, intuition, organizing stuff and dragons. These things have always interested me, but I’ve never explored any of them fully. I have just been learning about the healing energy of dragons, which really fascinates me, but that’s another post.
To take two hours every Sunday (now that football is over. Well, it’s over for me. Pittsburgh lost today) and learn how to cook. I suck at cooking. I’ve never taken the time to learn. I would like to learn how to cook healthy meals that I can freeze. I need to definitely learn how to cook/eat healthier, greener meals.
To use the Simply Fit Board that my husband bought me for Christmas. This was an item on my Christmas list, but I haven’t used it yet. I have to figure out the DVD player to use it and I haven’t yet. I don’t understand why I just can’t just push play anymore and something works. I should just be able to use one remote, push play and be done.
To write an hour a day, find a writer’s group, and find out who I am as a writer.
To be more understanding/tolerant of others and their situations. We are all walking on this earth, but we are not all on the same spiritual path. We are all fighting out own battles. I need to be more kinder in certain situations instead of passing judgement on things that I may know nothing about — even if I think I do.
I know this is kind of an odd list. It surprised me, too. It’s not what I set out to write, but it’s what I want to do so I’m going to give it a shot.
Here’s to us all reaching our 2018 goals!!!
