Have you ever made plans that completely got cancelled in order to make room for something else that ended up not happening? I planned to work on my taxes today so that it would be done and next week would then be free of looming tax work. Alas but that was not to be. My husband was contacted by someone who planned to come by so I decided it was better not to get started and have stacks of paper piles everywhere so...here I am at the end of the day and taxes are still looming with no visitors in sight.
I am a bit frustrated with myself because I did it again. It seems that I have done this many times in small and large ways in my life which has left me with many unmet goals. This has caused me to have a general feeling of frustration about several areas in my life. I could fall into the “poor me” mindset but I realize that leads nowhere. I see that it is my own choices that has brought this frustration. I also see that some simple changes in my own decisions can eliminate most of that frustration. 🌿
I realize that life will continue to happen and I want it to but I also want to actually achieve some of those dreams in my heart. With that goal in mind I am making a couple of corrections in my own decisions and actions to give myself a different outcome. Albert Einstein said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I want change. 🌿
It all starts with taking the time to look at the past and look at the goals and then figure out what steps will help me get to the goal. I find that overwhelm can be avoided if the steps are small bite sizes that are easy to achieve. That is how I did the huge transformation of our lakehouse and that is how I can transform my entire life. In the end my day was not wasted today. It actually helped me to reach all these conclusions and make the decision to change the outcome. 🌿
