Over the last few months I have been really hard on myself over a few things. I have always had very high standards of myself and what I expect from my life. For the most part, I've been consumed with reaching goals for the last, oh, 7 years.
[You know, when you realized in high school that you really want to go to college and become something? Then you have college, where you are stressed about making the right decisions...and then when you don't make the right ones you have to make up for the "bad" ones. Then you graduate and try to live the dream you thought up while you were still in school.
Have you been there?]
So, now that I'm out of school sometimes I feel a little......lost. I have goals, but life isn't as fast paced as it used to be. At least, not as fast paced in the areas that I wish it was. I feel like time flies in my personal life, but it's creeping by in my professional life. I always thought I had reasonable goals, a reasonable timeline, and realistic dreams. Well, like with most things in life, it isn't going quite as planned. Don't get me wrong-I have an amazing life and a good job, but it gets me down sometimes when I start to dwell on where I am in comparison to where I want to be. I am constantly brainstorming ways to improve, alter, or entirely redo my 'plan'. [Do you ever find yourself doing this? What do you do to kick yourself in the butt and make it stop?]
I think the
Are you an obsessive worrier [like me]? I hope not!
If you are, how do you kick the feeling when it creeps up?
