I’m going through a period of transition at the moment where I can feel myself changing and growing as a person due to things that have happened. Sometimes it’s a little scary to experience a change in outlook, but mostly it’s exciting. I’m a person who likes to feel like they are actively doing things, therefore constantself evaluation and self assessment is good for me.
I’ve figured out one definite ‘life goal’ – I want to wake up and not reach for my phone first thing.
Now I wouldn’t say I’m addicted to my phone. I don’t snapchat everything and I don’t even have a Twitter account, but when I wake up and my partner is still asleep I browse social media to see what people have been up to and read the news before I focus on anything in my own life.
I want a life that I wake up to and that becomes first priority. I don’t want to look at social media and wonder if everyone else is making sense of everything better than I am. I want to wake up and look out of my window, to marvel at the life around me that I have been able to build.
Don’t get me wrong – my life now isn’t an unhappy one, but I know that I want more than this and that is what I am working on.
One day I won’t reach for my phone to marvel at the outside world because my personal world will be all the fulfilment I need.
What are your life goals?
