I've had a hard time this year coming up with goals. Usually I'm all about goal writing at the beginning of a year. I love lists and crossing things off and feeling accomplished. This year, however, I felt hesitant. I was more nervous about putting stuff down on paper than I was eager to achieve. I didn't want to feel...
dunt dunt duuuhhh
...disappointment. So I oh-so-wisely decided I wouldn't make any goals this year, and thereby avoid disappointing myself.
Problem is: I underestimated how wandering aimlessly, free falling with no direction would feel. As it is now March of 2012, I've decided that aimless/goal-less feels worse than disappointed feels. So today I made a goal. A huge, colossal, monumental goal:
From March until December, I'm going to write one snail mail letter per month.
I know...I hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew here. Phew! Back story: I love getting personalized (not junk) snail mail. I even love sending snail mail. Mostly because it often results in RECEIVING snail mail. Well, at least it used to. Economically, environmentally, socially, it is a thing of the past. It's hardly even necessary in the electronic age in which we now live. The fact remains, though, I love getting personal mail.
So, to start my goal off right, today I wrote two letters. Check your mailboxes soon! You may be one of the lucky ones!
I hardly think this one little goal will solve my directionless/aimless problem, but it's at least a step in the right direction... Who knows, it may inspire me to come up with MORE goals!
