I am what some people call…an overachiever.
If I ever made a list of 101 things I want to do, it might turn into 202 items because there is a LOT I want out of life.
But I’m also afraid that while I’m living my life, I’m putting too much stock in people. And there’s no greater pain than realizing you might not have as many people that you can call a true friend as you thought.
I’ve dealt with this pain a lot…and more so recently.
The key is to focus on the positives and not the negatives.
Easier said than done.
I’m at a really new place in my life. Over the last year, I’ve crossed off some major “To-do” items from my non-existent 101 list.
*Move out of my parents house. Took me 3 years but I finally did it.
*Let go of the toxic. Some relationships are like a drug habit. It’s hard to kick it.
*Go back to school full-time. Done. Classes start on Tuesday.
*Stop settling for unworthy men. I found a wonderful man who loves me unconditionally.
*Travel more. Started with Boston…going to Texas in June! (And possibly Cali)
*Get paid to write. Just got my first freelance job as the 20Something Relationship Examiner. Look for the info when my first article is up.
*Publish my first book. 2 months or less. It’s happening. I don’t care what anyone says. This is for ME.
So with all of these goals crossed off the list, there are a few items I have been talking about FOREVER and it’s time that they get crossed off too…because no matter how afraid I am, I need to push through the pain and not let the negative get to me.
Goals for the next 18 months:
*Take the GREs.
*Get accepted to Grad school.
*Get accepted to a grad school OUT WEST.
*Move away from the East Coast. 14 years is too long to be in one place.
*Travel even more.
*Write a second book.
*Get a steady writing job.
*Stick to girlfriends who won’t bail on me 90% of the time.
Goal for the next infinite amount of hours:
Push through, even if it hurts.
Never, ever settle.
Do you have a 101 in 1001 list? How far along are you on it?
*My title is one big TWSS, as is my life.
