A week ago I achieved one of my major (personal) life goals. I had set this goal about 17 years ago. At the time it was a dream. I had not even started on the first part of my journey. I only had an idea or vision of what I wanted for myself. I did not have the skills or resources to obtain that dream. And I did not have the blueprint or the “how to.” I just decided that this goal was important to me.
Today I am going to talk about what happened when I achieved a big life goal.
What is the picture you have for when your reach your goal? What do you envision will happen? What do you make achieving this goal mean?
The Finish Line
On Friday, November 12, 2010 I achieved my (personal) life goal. There weren’t any balloons. There was not a party. In fact I was nervous and shaking. It felt good though. It was quiet and when I finished the process I was astounded at how peaceful it was and humbling. I had achieved something I had a vision for 17 years ago. I had not known how to go about achieving this goal, let alone starting it. But I did it.
I also realized that outside of my husband and children I did not need to tell anyone else about my accomplishment (though here I am telling you about my process). I did not need to prove to anyone else anything and this time realized that it did not make me any different or better.
9 days later
I still go wow. I achieved my goal. I did this. As scared as I was to cross the finish line on the day. I did it. I am proud of myself and humble on my personal acommplishment.
