When I sat back down at my computer after an entire summer without one, I found over 36,000 comments on this site, most of them spam. It took until yesterday to delete them all (mass deleting pages at a time) so I feel pretty accomplished, but apologize if I deleted YOUR comment, in the process. With this task behind me, I am hoping to be better focused on posting! Goal accomplished.
Back in August, after swimming about 100 laps a week since early June, I started to panic over the limited amount of swimming time left before the weather would make me less likely to want to take the plunge. Mitch and I were sitting on the beach and he said, try for 1000 more laps. Yesterday I completed the last 50 of those laps. Now, any swimming I do is bonus. Goal accomplished.
Back in early June, I also began jogging (I am so slow, I can’t ever call it running) after years of not. I started out slowly and made a goal to build my endurance to a place where I could easily jump into any random 5k and also to run between 6 and 8 miles a week. I accomplished those goals over the course of the summer, but was concerned about how I would keep them up once my clients were back in full swing and my schedule was more hectic. I am happy to say, I have managed to continue hitting the pavement a few times a week, always doing at least one 3.1 miler. Goal accomplished (and on a continuing basis).
Also this summer, I made a commitment to meditate with bazillions of others as part of a 21 day challenge. This was a 2 part goal…to make the commitment and then to keep meditating after the guided challenge was over. I am so happy that I have made morning meditation a habit. Rita and I (and I am sure so many others) would agree that the 21 day challenge truly was life changing. Goal accomplished (and continuing).
BUT another goal of mine is to blog less about me and more about others. This goal was most obviously NOT accomplished this morning, but it’s work in progress. Big or small, reaching goals inspires others to set goals. Please let me know what goals YOU have accomplished so that I can share them and help inspire others to feel that sense of accomplishment that we feel when we can say “YES! I did it.”
