#10 - I Comment Therefore I Am

Today is the day of revelations and decisions. The day that everywhere I turn I see a sign of what I need to do to get where I want to be. I just posted one my longest comments on Crystal's blog @Wanna Be Balanced Mom. In the post she wrote the reasons she does what she does in life. Then she concluded asking "What are you doing today, that will get you where you want to be?"

I wrote:

Thank you, thank you for this post.

It all started when I read an article, this morning, in which the writer wrote that to achieve something you want in life one must "work [his or her] ass off". Once at home I saw your post title Why I Do What I Do and I read the words "You've just got to get your priorities straight, figure out what's most important to you, and plan out your day. If you find that you're overwhelmed and don't have enough time in the day to do it all, then it's time to re-evaluate. Figure out what you can do without. ...cutting out your favourite shows on the DVR, or spending less time on the computer." and you conclude with the question "What are you doing today, that will get you where you want to be?"

This question took me back to my lunch hour, during which I wrote down what I need to do to turn my dream into a goal. Then I handed in my resignation letter - because our move to Canada will be happening soon! So yes, I have started to do the things that will make me achieve my dreams, because after all, money should not be the option in the first place.

Then to put the cherry on the cake I watched Revolutionary Road and one of Leonardo Di Caprio's lines nailed it "... people are better off doing some kind of work they actually like."

One day I will write I do it because I love it: my work!

...writing...

I am glad today came, because I have realised that the most important thing to do before I can achieve my dream is sorting out my priorities. And I have to work hard to get where I want to be. Today has been a great day because the message has entered my head like a nail. To get my dream into a goal I need perseverance and sorting out my priorities.

I need to plan properly and if the baby is not here yet, then I have other priorities. I know what I WANT and I know what to do to get there. I don't have to be scared to tell other people what I want to become: a published writer. There, I have said it. I want to be a published writer!

Because, once the babies are here and they are old and they've moved out of the family house, yes, Hubby and I will have each other but we also have to be happy of the career choices we made. Because being happy will always affect our mood in life.

This has been on my mind for a while and I am starting to work towards the only thing I have power over: my career.

  4. It seems to me that the Universe is conspiring to make your dreams come true. What you want is possible, you can make it happen.

  5. I like the idea of planning your day. It is a great idea and helps you get much more out of your time than just drifting along.
