The irony; this month feels like not a lot has gone right for me, and yet… I reached some of the goals that I set at the beginning of the year (without a time frame)!
So where is the sense in that?
I felt challenged this month. I had things that I felt anxious about, but actually they went well and reiterated to me a few home truths that I needed to hear. I had things I aimed to write about, to digest and share, and actually have several hundred words sitting on my laptop waiting to see the light of day, but somehow that hasn’t quite happened. I had things I was trying to keep up with but I just seemed to lose the thread of thought or conversation.
That is the pattern for this month, things half done, or incomplete, and it leaves me feeling discombobulated (how can you not love that word!) and somehow that I have ‘failed’. But it’s not really failure, it’s just life. Things happen, you make choices, priorities or you have to react to other things. And for everything that gave me a sense of failure, I had something that gave me a sense of success.
I am grateful for what I have achieved, and whilst the things that are incomplete are still there, they are exactly that, still there. I am grateful that life goes on, that I get to try again, to rise to the challenges that face me. I am grateful for the other goals that I have set for myself, and I will turn to them going forward. I am grateful that I will set more goals too, look at the next steps that I can take with my life and my dreams.
I am grateful for my life.
