Or, are they?
Maybe it's time to ask myself four major questions and answer them with my heart....not my head.
Question 1: Am I pleased with what I have accomplished up to now?
Question 2: What do I want out of life for the remainder of my years?
Question 3: Have I done more than my share for myself and others?
Question 4: How comfortable am I just the way I am?
What have I already done? What struggles did I battle my way through to have survived to this point? Is it any wonder that I grow weary and tired of pushing myself to do stuff I no longer care to do?
Imagine how many spiral notebooks we baby boomers could fill if we wrote down every single one of our life accomplishments (including the personal ones that no one else knows about). Maybe we'd all feel better about ourselves if we kept a "ta da" list instead of a never-ending "to do" list.
