Every year around my birthday, I think about where I am in my life and somewhat evaluate myself. You know how you go into your bosses office for employee evaluations or you give employee evaluations? Yea I do that shit to myself. Why? #goals.
But for real, goals! I am constantly making new goals for myself as I achieve them. Beyond that, I sometimes I need to realign my life, mySELF in the right direction to make sure I reach my goals. Some people use New Years for that. I go the less cliche route and use my birthday. It's a day that'll happen every year no matter what; good anchor. I'm working towards the year that I am undoubtedly pleased and satisfied with my life. Not that I'm not satisfied now, but yea, there are some things I'd like to see changed. And some of those things are out of my control. Sometimes, part of what I need to work on is the simple act of just being content; giving things to God and just being happy. I know I let trivial bullshit bother me sometimes; I know that. Awareness is key, so I'm headed in the right direction...
Needless to say, I wasn't particularly overjoyed with the way some things have been going in my life, and I addressed some of those issues today. FUCK do I feel better! I know things aren't going to change overnight, but it was kind of liberating earlier today.
Now to work on some other things...I'll get there & I encourage you to do the same thing. Pick an anchor point in your life that will remain constant. Become aware of your life and what's happening. Are you truly happy? If not, screw what you're doing and make some kind of change; no matter how big or small. Make that shit better.
