Life Goals

on August 18, 2020

I guess I’m supposed to have them, right?

Every time I set a life goal for myself, I rationalize myself out of it

Or I make it totally un-achievable or something

So then I can hate all over myself for failing

Or quitting

It was easier to have goals when my kids were young

  • Make enough money to provide for my family
  • Raise my daughters to be decently good, responsible humans
  • Stay healthy

To be honest, that’s about as high as I ever set the bar and, even then, I kind of failed miserably

Now that my children are adults and I am divorced I am discovering that I should probably set some new goals for myself instead of randomly making terrible choices as my life passes me by

Maybe having some actual goals would prevent some of those stupid choices

Or maybe create more

Who knows?!

    Staying sober’s the best first steps.., share you developments.

    Rooting for you. I’m making my changes too. 💕

      Thank you, Dave. I’ve been sober (again) now for almost 2 weeks. It’s tough! My habits all revolve around drinking, and I miss it.

      Good luck to you!

Talk to me :-)
