adjective; nearsighted. lacking imagination, foresight, or intellectual insight
Start the dishwasher. Start the laundry. Make the bed. Unload the dishwasher. Put the laundry in the dryer. Go through the mail. Fold the laundry, put it away. Do some ironing. Every. Single. DAY! It’s 2018 aren’t there robots that can do this stuff? It is becoming painfully apparent that my nearsightedness is causing me to only attend to things right in front of me. How shallow. How boring. How robotic.
What about my long term goals? What about imagination and intellect? What about time to create? Don’t I have depth and dimension? I have been wanting to do so many different, creative things for years now. Decades, actually. And every single day the time is washed away with chores and busyness of I don’t know what?!
This year I am making time for the BIG things. I’m penciling into my schedule time to think and read and be creative. It’s been a long time coming. Isn’t it odd how you have to say you want something a thousand times before it actually manifests itself? Change in thought and habit is not easy. But I have been working on this for awhile now and it’s finally coming to fruition. This time and space to go beyond what is directly in front of me is happening.
Perhaps it is just simply maturity, but I am ready to move on. That is why my word for the year is TRANSITION. I am being kind to myself in understanding that new time management and organizing and daily habits will take more energy and more time to put into practice. So I am giving myself the year to implement changes. Being myopic is no longer an option! I am inspired by Joyce Meyer, I can handle the small things, so now the focus is on the big things…and I kind of like that about myself.
“Getting organized in the normal routines of life and finishing little projects you’ve started is an important first step toward realizing larger goals. If you can’t get a handle on the small things, how will you ever get it together to focus on the big things?”
What are your larger goals?
