Mid-year life review -- how are you?
Ahh, June 15th. This is around the middle of the year -- in the middle of the sixth month. I think this is a good time to take a look at how we've been doing.
Many of us make New Year Resolutions. I've made the same one ever since my teens: Make This Year The Best Yet. And at the end of each year, I look back on it and most of the time I feel I have succeeded. So how is this year going for me?
One major focus this year was developing more self-discipline. I have spent a lot of time in the past figuring out who I am, what I want to develop in myself, and what I need to think and do to accomplish this. My problem for a couple years has been my stop-go-stop-go approach. I make progress, but it's slow progress, because I just can't seem to completely focus well on what I really want.
It's kind of odd, really. Imagine someone telling you that you can have everything you want but you just need to have a little consistency. I think that's basically the opportunity many of us have and yet we struggle. So getting past this struggle in my own life has been a major focus of the year.
These are a few of the things I've been proud of this year so far:
Not everything has been great. Such as:
So there's a list of some of the good and bad that I've experienced this year. I have some extra time this Summer and I've been using it to finish up some personal projects I've been helping people with and really just getting eager to kick myself in the ass and make the last half of 2009 the best last half of any year I've had so far.
Enough of me. How are you doing?!
