This week, the wise Jamie Ridler asks us “What limits do you wish to set?” This is a tough one for me, because I don’t do well with limits! I like my freedom and the spontaneity of my life. Well, I say I like it, but too often I don’t take full advantage of it and I end up stagnating. Another example of my not making the things I profess to care about a priority! Hmmm … that requires some thought!
As much as I claim to enjoy my freedom, I’d like to put some limits on my goofing off each day! Even though I enjoy the carefree feeling of my days, I also enjoy getting things accomplished and moving forward. I don’t want to wake up at the end of my life and find out I’ve squandered it on things that don’t matter. Sure, blog hoping is fun, but it’s so easy to get lost in the internet and find that it’s taken all of my day! I need days like that occasionally — but not every day! I have a schedule and a to-do list that I need to follow more closely in order to get things done each day — and that means less spontaneity and more self-imposed limits!
I’d also like to set some limits on how critical and judgmental I can be — of myself! I am, as many of us are, my own worst critic. I’d like to step away from that behavior and be more sure of myself, more confident. More supportive of myself and my dreams.
