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 hope it’s a good day to all of you. Today, this is not going to be a short story, but this is going to be me, talking about my Great Expectations from myself.
Something I promised myself I’d do by the end of the year is, finish my novel, It’s been almost a year and a half now, and I haven’t finished it yet. I’m not even halfway through!
I mean I’ve got it in me, I know. But I guess it’s laziness, or lake of resources, or me just being a lazy sloth.
If I do it and finish my novel before the end of this year, I’d be very happy, and I’d be self-satisfied, which would lead me to another goal which is; being able to release my self from the boundaries of the community, which is about 70% self-esteem (and I’ve got about 86% of that) and the rest is will-power.
If I don’t do it, I’d feel like a complete jerk! Because I have something to do, and I know I it, but I just won’t get my butt off the freaking couch! And it would totally screw up my self-esteem, which would keep me from my second goal.
I always say everything is connected. I mean how could a novel affect in any way the character of a person? It could. Simply because you think everything’s separate and different. Doesn’t mean it is.
Pray for me. And may the odds be ever in your favor.
