Sarah over at Writer in the Making tagged me, so I am supposed to say where I'd like to be in 10 years. This is really tough for me, but here goes.
In ten years I would like to be a debt free college graduate, teaching students to love math. On tuesday's I'd go to a writing club and mostly sit and listen to people's stuff, and try to help them make it just right. Then one day if I had the courage, maybe read something of mine. In ten years, I hope to have read many more books(especially Sarah's latest), learned many new ideas, but most importantly to have become more honest with myself and others.
TAG MARK, EVA, MS. FIN, RACHEL REPROPATE, YOUR IT!!!
I think it is very important to do this sort of thing often, and especially the way Sarah said she had,
"Fun fact: I actually wrote the 3 objectives of( being a nurse, publishing a book, and moving somewhere else) on a piece of paper that I keep in my wallet, to remind me of my dreams...always."
I read a book recently called Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz
check it out. I really enjoyed it. It was written in like 1960 or so. Maltz was a plastic surgeon, so it's easy to discount what he says, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt.
His book is ultimately about reaching goals, and that alot of times what inhibits our reaching our goals is not our lack of ability, but the self-imposed restrictions of a poor self image.
So I guess that's it, I'm done for now folks. FYI: I finally had time to post this because I am stuck at home with a semi-bad foot sprain. hoping it will be okay tomorrow with the RICE method.
I leave you with a quote from Sartre
"Everything has been figured out, except how to live."
