Our brains are funny things. I’m never quite sure whether we have control of them or if they have control of us. Either way, it is easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to everybody else, wondering why others are succeeding while you are in the same place – on that note – telling yourself you’re in the same place when actually you’re a year older, a year wiser, and have a lot to show for it: just not what you want to show for it.
This week I realised that the only way to get to where I want to be is to get my head in the game, stop the self-pity and bloody do something about it. So, I’ve signed up for an Excel course to improve my possibility of getting accepted at interviews, I’ve written a plan for what I will achieve by May 2018, and I have set myself little goals for every day, week and month so that I can forever feel like I am moving forward and not treading water.
I enter June slightly sunburnt and in good spirits. I am excited about what the future may hold and prepared to give life everything I’ve got. There are only so many days I can sit at home watching back to back TV episodes before I will look back and wonder where my life has gone.
I welcomed the middle of the year with a trip to St Albans to enjoy the sunny weather and eat my first Flake 99. Today has been an excellent day and has reminded me that every day is the first day of the rest of my life. Why waste them?
How have you spent your day?
