Today I woke up feeling slightly guilty for not journaling yesterday. After all, it is one of my goals that I made for myself to complete every day and I have been fulfilling those goals until last night. It was a long day at work (like normal), but I just didn’t feel like writing anything. Like REALLY didn’t feel like writing anything. After making myself feel bad, I came to the realization that not journaling for one night out of the week does not mean the world is going to crash and burn in an apocalyptic fire. By making myself feel bad, I’m just adding another stressor to my already stressful life.
There will be days that goals may not be fully met, but if you realize and are conscious of those unmet goals, and wake up the next day with the motivation to seize every opportunity, your goals will be met and it will be even more rewarding. You didn’t just give up even though you hit a bump in the road. You persevered and have learned and grown from the experience.
Even though I didn’t journal last night, I got up early and ran 3 miles on the treadmill and stretched for 10 minutes. I feel refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of my goals by seizing every possible opportunity.
