Does it Ever End?

Good job –  Done! Will I ever hear these words?

I feel like I have so many goals for myself, yet there isn’t an end in sight.

Sunday evening I went for a walk with a friend. We never specify the route, just turn as we feel and explore new parts of the neighborhood. We came across a 300 piece hopscotch board. While I didn’t participate in it, I loved the tenacity of the creator.

As we strolled the board I assume it would end at 25, then 100, then 200, and never assumed they would go all the way to 300. The path got longer, and longer, and longer.

So while some of my goals seem farther and farther and farther away. Maybe that is okay. Maybe the payoff will be sweeter in the end. Until then, I need to celebrate how far I have come. I have started on a path, it may not lead me where I am initially intending, but it will get me somewhere.

And if I don’t get where I want to go, I will just keep going!

What journey are you on?

How many spaces are in your hopscotch boards?

  1. I have that feeling as well. I feel like I meet a goal but then there is a new goal so I spend less time celebrating what i”ve accomplished and more time thinking about what is next. I am trying to work on this so I don’t feel like the carrot is always being dangled further out in front of me. I have gotten better about this in regards to my career, though, as after several years of trying to find where I fit, I am in a role I love at a company I love. But dang it took many years of struggle to get here! I hope you figure out what industry/company you are meant to work at as solving that is such a big part of happiness with our day to day life!

  2. I love the analogy of a hopscotch board for goals! I never thought of that. I still don’t know how many spaces my hopscotch board has either. And I’m ok with that for right now!
