A quote from The Minimalist, “One day or day one. You decide.” Think about that. What power that quote has? I have chosen day one. What power that gives me. What happens today could be the choices I make. Of course, I realized ‘Life’ can add surprises to a day. However, how I chose to respond is still up to me.
I’m am still reading their book, “Everything That Remains”, and one section talked about goals. Not setting goals. I have to admit this idea is hard for me. Most of my life I have felt program to have goals. For me, not having a goal means that I’m wasting my life. I’ve always felt that every minute needed to count and in order for that to happen, I needed goals.
This doesn’t mean that I become irresponsible. Today I had several things that needed to be done and I did complete them. Now, I’m at a lull and my mind automatically goes to what other goals do you have for today and there are none and that is okay. I think. 🙂
I can sit here and write, read, or watch the fire, and there is no pressure to fulfill any goals. I have to admit, this new idea may take me a time to get used to.
