New Year’s Resolutions and Goals
Happy 2020, friends!
Have you set any resolutions or goals for the year ahead?
I’ll be honest… I am not the goal-setting type— at least in the measurable goals kind of way. Of course, there are things that have my focus, things that give me clarity on the trajectory of where I want to go in the year ahead (ie. more writing, more rest, better eating habits, etc.)
But, I don’t set specific, measurable goals like “I’m going to write 10 blog posts by March 1st.”
Because the truth is— and I’m sure you’ll understand— living with SMA can be unpredictable at times. One minute I can have all the energy in the world to tackle my goals, and in the next my body can be so fatigued I can barely move.
And in that moment where I’m fatigued and frustrated, I fall short on those measurable goals I set. And I get upset, beat myself up, and throw the potential of accomplishing said goals out the window.
I realize that’s unfair to do to myself, so instead I set realistic goals while giving myself the grace to accomplish them at my own pace.
What about you?
