My Own Misfortunate Chain Of Expectations

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?

The Daily Post

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.
