x goals before x

22 Jun

Huh? you say?

x=your age.

Ah! You guys…I am attempting one this year. I put together x number of goals , some mini/low-impact , some life shattering , some achievable and some definitely-not-happening goals until my next birthday.  I am not mentioning them specifically since I am not one to say “DO this” . At least not anymore. Who is to say my goals are good enough for the populace in general? However, they are good enough for me.

Now, like I mentioned above, 2 goals are not going to happen. I realized that as I was putting together the list (it took me 6 days to come up with them, go ahead laugh at me). It feels very sobering to write this but I am old enough to understand what is in my comfort zone, what is outside and what is so far from my comfort zone that it feels like a dot in the nano range. I want them in there so that I can remind myself that not all things are achievable and there is a limit to ‘me’. If you didn’t laugh earlier, here is another cue.

I have a theme for this year. Brighten. Here is how why this happened. A month ago I found a spider under a toilet brush holder in my bathroom. Usually I scream, then grab a broomstick and whack it. As it happened I decided to let him stay there until he bothered me. He stayed there for 2 weeks before annoying me. I whacked him. Case closed. Only no. Another spider occupied the abode. I waited a week before whacking him. A week later, a mini third one decided to make it his home. I started wondering why? Why did bad things keep moving in there? why were they attracted to the dark place ? Because every time I got rid of them, the dark place still existed. It reminded me of my mind. It does not suffice to just get rid of dark thoughts. It is essential to make my mind bright and let in positive thoughts. Only by changing the landscape can I prevent negative thoughts from entering.  So there you go, this the year when I cultivate a better healthier mind.

I managed to turn a motivating goal post into a dull philosophical one but I am growing old folks. By the way, if you were wondering about Hari (mini spider) he still is hanging around. Atleast a week old now. Sigh!
