Reached your goals now what

For as long as I can remember I have worked very hard to get what I want. I stayed up late, woke up early and endured experiences that I probably should not have. Now that I have what I wanted, it might not be allot in the yes of others, I find myself seeking more, a reason or higher purpose. Even worse I find myself suffering from impostors syndrome. Is it really my unique talents and capabilities that has achieved all that I have or is it just some pie in the sky, thing that helps me reach goals without having to work towards them.

I know that I work hard, I was there, but how do I acknowledge and truly accept all the good things that I have accomplished. This has always been the case with me. I remember the all the times I failed and none of the times that I succeeded. During my childhood I got too comfortable with not having, so comfortable that I struggle with gratitude.

Gratitude that my dad changed his life around. That my parents encouraged us to become the best that we can be. I have received a good education. I have the best family. Gratitude at the grace that I have experienced in my life through the help of others. To be honest, growing up, I dd have two roads to choose from, my life turned out to be beautiful beyond my wildest dreams.

I guess, that I am not an alien in my body. But me trying to find myself at the various levels of growth. And even though I feel alien to myself right now, I will be able to find my next purpose and learn to life with gratitude.


In my next article, I will document my journey on finding my higher purpose.

      Whenever we approach anything with a sort of "single mindness" we're bound to have a "Now what?" moment soon after we accomplish the goal. Imagine training for the Olympics for (4 years) to run a 100 yard dash. The race will be over in 10 seconds whether you win or lose.

      "Now what?"

      To a lesser degree you see the same thing when people are preparing for the holidays. They're running around shopping, planning, cooking, getting their house ready for company. After the meal is eaten and the gifts have been opened within a couple of hours some folks have the post holiday blues.

      The problem is most people do not set multiple goals in (different) areas of their life. It's having a laser beam focus that creates emptiness once that (one) thing is complete.

      Just curious why you posted this hub under the category of:

      Gender and Relationships»Romantic Intimacy» and Planning an Intimate Moment?

      Great smile by the way! :)
