Meeting a goal

So I told myself that by the end of the day I’d have a new blog post written, and to help me accomplish that goal I’m supposed to embrace the positive sense of success and achievement. There’s one little problem with that entire notion.  The number of times I’ve actually felt that ‘feeling of success’ are so few and far between that I’m not even fully sure what that would feel like. So far; my writing is the only thing that I ever really get that feeling from, and even that’s not guaranteed to give me that feeling. I find myself wondering if some of the trouble I have with things in my life is from the lack of the positive feeling associated with accomplishing something. That leaves me with a question, how can I make myself feel that sense of accomplishment that is normally lacking in my life? The only answer I can think of is to fake it till I convince myself that I’m really feeling that warm sense of accomplishment, which could take awhile considering positive thinking is not my strong suit. It seems like the next goal I should set for myself is to manage to think positively for a day, or even part of a day. Baby steps aren’t my favorite way of taking things, but for this one I don’t think I really have a choice…

 

Oh hey! I finished that blog post. Goal accomplished.

One thought on “Meeting a goal

  1. My little brother, you have accomplished so much in your life! I remember how proud I felt watching you walk at your high school graduation… and how proud of yourself you looked in that hat! One of my favorite things to do in life is to check off a box… so it is hard for me to even fathom not loving that Check! Yes, do persevere. Do fake it until you make it. Do look at the outcome and say, “Hey, that is good. This is worth it.” Perhaps instead of waiting for that feeling, just look at the results and realize that it is SO good to see what you have done. I am proud of all that you have done. I”ll work on how to share this warm-feeling of accomplishment with you!

    Love always,
    The Sister
