Daily Prompt: Great Expectations
Tell us about one thing (or more) that you promised yourself you’d accomplish by the end of the year. How would you feel once you do? What if you don’t?
I’m kinda weird in the way that, usually, when I commit to something I start to feel like I HAVE to do it, then I don’t want to anymore. Like, for instance, going to the pool on Sunday mornings, as soon as I buy the 10 visit pass, I don’t want to go anymore.
So I tend to not put time limits on things (if I ever do go back to the pool, I’ll just pay as I go).
I want to write a novel, I have many ideas, and have even started, but have stopped again. It’s writer’s block or just plain self doubt, I dunno. There are many things I want to do…
But my main, overriding, thing for the past 11 months is find a JOB! It is hard to think of much else. I am not having the greatest time at it either. I’ve applied at more jobs than should be necessary, and only had a handful of call ins. I have had the range of interviews from good to downright awful. I have had my time wasted and been insulted (these people one would NOT want to work for).
So, back to the daily prompt…if I don’t finish, or even start, all the things I want to do, I’ll beat myself up mercilessly. I’m good at that. If I should finish, and boy would that be great to finish the novel!, then I will be ecstatic!
