Writer’s Workshop: Hello GOAL where are you?

A Purple Bloom

A Purple Bloom


On certain days it really feels that the day would have been better if I remained in bed instead of waking up. Nothing seems to be going as envisioned.  Everything seems to be moving at a snail’s pace instead of the regular pace that I have been used to.

Each time when I think that I have things under control life throws me a curve ball and messes up the meticulous planning that I had done.

It stresses me out and I can feel every muscle in my body tense up as I rack my brain on how to solve the problem that had suddenly surfaced.

Things that I thought I was crystal clear about has turned murky and grey.  The rainbow  which I have seen shining across the blue sky has all but disappeared into oblivion.

It has been quiet. All TOO quiet as our economy has yet to pick up speed.  The forecast for this year seems worst then last year and I’m quite certain that I may not be able to meet some of the targets which I have set at the beginning of the year.

The Kindergarten that Tiger girl is currently attending will be closing it’s doors at the end of the year and I have to find another place for her to continue her studies.

We have to redo our monthly budget and re-shuffle the existing schedules to ensure that everything fits in nicely.

The wish to further my studies has to be temporarily shelved.  There isn’t budget for a Masters in Childhood Psychology and I don’t think I will be able to carve out the time needed to study the course at the moment  with the current busy schedule.

The planned trip to New Zealand would have to wait.  The investment in professional camera gear would have to be delayed.  We have to be more prudent in our expenditure and make sure that every penny is well spent.

It’s extremely difficult to factor in all these luxuries  due to the uncertainties in our economic situation in the present moment.

There is a more urgent need to set aside cash for rainy days and increasing expenditure by the kids.

My weight has stagnated once again. It’s really exasperating as I haven’t seen any movement in the scale in the past six month.

We have been eating more healthily and cutting down eating out.

I know my weakness lies in being motivate to exercise regularly and really be more discipline in my diet.

I need to really put my weight loss woes to GOD and trust that he will help me achieve that goal.

Even though things are not going my  way my outlook isn’t bleak. I’m still pressing forward and edging toward these goals which I have set earlier.

I believe that I will be able to achieve all that I set out  to achieve although it may take longer then expected.

 Have you ever felt that life was getting in

the way of a big goal?

Did you end up giving up or pressing forward?
