Here’s one of the many things about ADHD: I set goals and make plans for myself, and then promptly forget all about them. It can be maddening to struggle so much with following through on intentions, so I’ve learned to be gentle. It’s fun to make the plans and set the goals and intend the intentions. Maybe I will follow through. Maybe I won’t. No hard feelings either way. Even though I don’t always reach my goals, I still love to dream about those things I’m trying to get to:
break up with social media once and for all
visit an art museum or stop for street art once a month
publish a blog post at least once a month
allow my hair to go gray
buy one book each month from an indie bookstore
eat more salads and vegetables
trap and neuter the rest of the feral cat colony
sign up for an online art class
complete three 30-day writing challenges in my notebook
hang pictures in my bedroom and living room
What are you trying to get to this year?
This post was inspired by Trina’s 10 Things I’m Trying to Get To (and I borrowed one of the items on her list too!).
