Being Me: Week 52

 "What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as

what you become by achieving your goals."

 

Being Me: Week 52


 I cannot believe how quickly 52 weeks went by and in that fifty-two weeks, I set a goal to write weekly short stories with monthly themes, and I did it!

I believe the biggest lesson from goals is that you don't always have to achieve them to improve. In fact, even with this goal on writing every week, during our move from our house to apartment, for several weeks I didn't write at all. But that did not mean I needed to give up on my goal.

As with any goal, it is the small steps you do consistently that create the change we are seeking, so just because you happen to miss a day, week or even month, you don't have to abandon your goal till next year...

And so as I end this series with some time to spare, I will reflect on what I learned and where to go from here. I will keep writing, a promise I keep to myself, and for 2020, I will continue to set goals that help me reach for something more, be open to learn and as time does its thing and slowly slips by, I will continue my growth along the way.
