I have an obsession with paper and notebooks and lists, etc. I probably have a journal in every room in our home and I love writing little notes and lists and marking off things that I've completed. Ever since the Pursuit 31 Conference, I've tried to be a little more organized with my list. One BIG list for things to do. One BIG list of things that I'd love to accomplish.
Obviously, I have personal goals and professional goals. Don't we all have separate goals for each corner of our life? One day, I hope to be a mother, and I also hope to be able to do photography full time.
Sometimes it's hard to just let go. To plan as much as we can and then we have to turn it over. If we just continue to make plans we loose sight on what we are doing now. I can honestly say that I have lost sight of what's going on in my day to day life because I'm too busy worrying about the future and what we're going to do/accomplish/have.
J is always telling me to stop worrying. And worrying...I'm a pro at that. I can worry about the smallest things. But I'm working on that little quirk about myself. I'm working on turning all my worries over. Working on living my life day to day.
Yes, I have goals and plans and dreams. But they aren't my road map. I don't have to hit each mark. They are just guidelines for things that I would be blessed to accomplish.
