Today is a great time for you to look ahead toward your future. Start putting some new goals into place, and try to get a little bit more aggressive about achieving them. It's very wise to create attainable goals, but it's only the loftiest goals that can inspire you to stretch yourself in new ways. Time is going to move forward whether you are aware of it or not, so you need to make every day count. Creating an awareness of where you are now versus where you want to be will help you do just that.
Aggressive goals - yep, I haz dem. Not quite ready to say them out loud to the internets yet, though. But I woke up yesterday in a major "Time to GET IT DONE!" mode, and set myself a countdown clock and deadlines, and I'm all about it. Because I am way too aware of where I am now, vs. where I want to be, and it sucks, and it is time to just get on with it. The last week showed me that it's Time.
And on that note, because things are all mission themed in my life right now, the other day I downloaded this song. And yes, I know it's probably a bit disturbing that a 51 year old grandmother-to-be has One Republic and the like on her iPod, but I can't stand people my age who sit around and bitch about how today's music is all crap and it's just not the same since the Eagles broke up and only listen to oldies stations. (And isn't it traumatic when your high school music becomes the oldies station playlist?) I mean, I still love the Eagles, individually and collectively, but I also listen to these young things. This song is my anthem right now - they had me at "I've become what I can't be."
