Not Lost Yet

Sometimes I feel like I am losing my edge, then something like this morning's apocalyptic sunrise happen and the floodgates of inspiration crash open and it just flows... on and on...

Master Plan 2016 Edition

I think it is good to stick with the approach of years past as not much has changed. But more than that, I have come to realized that it is really the little things that matter. As I have gotten older, I realized that goals are achieved one step at a time.
I want to travel again. I was dormant last year and it was for a good reason, but it was just not very me.
I want to have better health habits. My stress level definitely decreased last year, but I still need to work on that.
The goals from last year remain as those are more habits than goals, such as reading more, writing more, being more active and eating healthier. I also need to make a better effort of keeping up wit the blog because last year I sucked at it!
I also need to add a few more "I need to start acting like an adult" goals that I should have done a few years ago:

  • Open an IRA
  • Start investing
  • Buy a house (maybe)
  • Pay off my car (maybe)

Finally, I must add, however, that the podcast going live will be a must. I got halfway there last year, so this year I must walk the other half.
But

Farewell 2015

This was finally the year I switched jobs! There have been some ups and downs, of course. But so far, it has mostly been ups. I look forward to what will be of it in the future, or rather what I will make of it. I am obviously allowing the time for it to be, or to show me that it won't be so I can act accordingly.
The year that comes to an end has mostly been a good year. The end of it, however, has really given me a run for my money in as far as patience is required. I have learned that things don't come to you when you want them, but when you need them. But that is not to say, you have sit around waiting for them. You have to go out and get them. It is just they play hide and seek until you are ready.
I am just not very good at the waiting game. I want what I want when I want it. Otherwise, I tend to lose interest and move on.
I learned a little discipline as well. But there is still do much more I can do in that department.
I continue to learn about how little the opinions of others matter. Oh, but there is always someone ready to remind me that everybody is watching. I just skip a step and get right back on track.

Farewell 2015, you thought me lessons I did not know I needed to learn, but I thank you for them.
May 2016 bring what 2015 fell short of and more.
