Sometimes our goals are so far away, that we have no idea how to get there, if we ever will, and is it right to be so absolutely focused on our goals? Does this take away from the present?
Today, my goals make my present absolutely enjoyable. I was so happy that I spent my weekend at home, at our community pool, taking so many walks with my children in the stroller, a few solo & family bike rides – all in lots of sunshine. It was all free. Free everyday fun where the outside and nature provided 100% of the entertainment.
I made the most delicious iced coffees, with whip creme on top with sprinkled cinnamon. I don’t need to go to Starbucks, or a local coffee shop to get my fix! I can make my very own, and share it with those I love. I made one for neighbor, my husband and my step daughter. They were delicious, fun, and truly full of LOVE. I opened up my kitchen cabinets and said, “Okay – what do we have?” And I used what we had to create deliciousness.
Just right now, I was taking a lil break at work, taking a stroll around our office building, and I said to myself: Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and the goals will come together. My main two goals are my goals of HEALTH and WEALTH. I want to continue to eat healthy & Whole30 each and every day – and I want to continue to reduce my expenses, and build up my savings, so we have 1M invested/saved. These two are huge goals. The journey to reaching them is actually the fun part. It will be absolutely AWESOME to get there, and LIVE my life and make the decisions I need, when we get there – but right now right here, this past weekend, this is the journey. It’s fun and exhilarating, and awesome, and hard, and motivating and most of all: worth it!
Know exactly what you want, how you want to live, what you want to learn and explore and experience – and go after it. I’m just so absolutely psyched to practice exactly what I need, to live exactly as I want to – right now (while mimicking my future). The key is to create your daily life EXACTLY as your current goals & dream future. Make your future your present and your happiness a daily present.
