So, I have been going to A LOT of meetings. I even started going to Al-Anon, because hey, I am from a long line of alcoholics, so it makes sense. And, as I go to these meetings (six a week) and I meet new people and hear new stories, I am finding out many things about myself.
Honestly, I can’t change me or my circumstances without rigorous honesty and self-awareness. If I keep living in an imaginary bubble and pretend my life is just the way I like it, my life is going to stay exactly the way I don’t like it.
That is lame.
I went to the library Saturday and took out two books: “Make Your Creative Dreams Real” and “Become a Personal Trainer For Dummies.”
I know I am a good writer, and I love to write. My dream has always been to be a best-selling author touching people’s lives, all the while living in an amazing house up the mountains somewhere. However, what I am realizing is this:
I really love people. I love talking to people, I love making someone’s day and, most of all, I love helping people. People fascinate me. Their mannerisms, their behavior, the things they say and especially the way they project the way they think.
And for some reason, whenever I journal or reflect on what I REALLY want to do with my life, it always comes back to helping people. Specifically, it always comes back to becoming a personal trainer or an addiction counselor.
So that is where I am at.
- Write synopsis and query letter for “Bound and Broken.”
- Come up with some flash fiction stories (I had NO idea what to write for this past Friday – sorry everyone).
- Continue with meetings.
- Do a mind map of goals, tools and resources to get on the right path.
That’s it for me! :D Where is everyone with their progress? Do you ever find new goals as you tackle current ones?
Have a great week…
