The problem is, my life has been so full of ups and downs lately that I can barely catch the wave before another one crashes. It's been crazy. Instead of focusing on the dailies, I thought I'd give you a glimpse into my goals.
I must say first off, I'm very upset about the trapped miners in Chile. They have been underground for several weeks and have at least four months to go. I can't form words as to how horrible the situation must be for them! It's been replaying in my mind often in the last few days. No matter how upsetting my life can be I'M NOT TRAPPED IN A MINE!
Then I began to think: four months is a LOT of time. Wouldn't it be wasteful if durning the time that those poor people are stuck down there and can't live, I'm above ground not doing anything?
I began to think of what I'd like to accomplish in four months. A sort of tribute saying, I can't help you, but I'm certainly not going to dishonor you by wasting my time that you weren't equally given.
My goals for the next four months are:
- I would like to have finished at least the second/third draft of the manuscript I just started. At least have it to a place where I can pass it on to MM.
- I want to organize/get rid of all the kids toys. They are overwhelming and the task intimidates me.
- Teach Bekah how to tie her shoes. I spent every morning of last year practicing with her. She doesn't get it.
What are your four month goals?
