The other day was National Evaluate Your Life Day. It was a tough day for me. Not tough in a sense that everything was falling apart, but tough to see where I’m currently at in my life.
I always have a list of goals. I check off that weekly list every week. Everyday if I meet a goal, I can’t wait to check it off. But in evaluating my life, it was different.
This life evaluation was an overall standing. It was time to see where I am in comparison to where I was and where I want to be. And there was some good and bad on my list. And yes, I felt some type of way at the end when I had to actually look at my list.
See, it’s pretty easy to have an idea of where you may be. But there’s something more difficult about seeing it on paper. It seems more final on paper, you know?
But, today is a new day, because not only will I continue to evaluate my life, but I will evaluate my emotions. Instead of getting down about where I’m not, I’m going to get up about where I’m going. I’m going to get up about where I’ve come from.
In the words of my friend, it’s time to revisit and revise. And in my case, also to reevaluate.
