Goal Monster 2017

Daily Prompt–Mope


I don’t have time for pointless pain. I don’t have time to grieve what never really was. I don’t mope around anymore. I don’t cry, or hide or wish I would die. I don’t call you, text you, pray for you. I don’t.

I do have plans for my life. Plans for my success. Plans for my growth. Plans for being better than you made me feel. I do dream for me, set goals for me, work hard for me. I know I am stronger than you made me seem, I know you were an anchor and I’m ready to get moving.

I have already done more in a day than you gave me time to do, I don’t have to check in with you, I don’t have to apologize to you, I don’t have to forgive or call or stop everything for you.

My head is up, my heart is open, my spirit is flying. This is the me you never knew. This is the Phoenix rising.



In a couple of days a whole New Year begins. I’m starting at a bit of an advantage, I have a new job, my toxic romantic relationship of a little over a year has finally ended, I am on the mend from a gnarly head cold….so much to work with! I have decided to spring from the gate and get things done. There’s so much I have wanted for myself, so many hopes and dreams and goals and plans, but I have consistently sabotaged myself, broken down, given in, forgotten my intentions, listened to the negative people I too often surround myself with and this year is like a blinding light of hope and I have never been more excited for an adventure than I am of creating a new life for myself. This life I seek is all about accomplishment. I have goals and I have tools and I have the desire to succeed.

This little blog is my way of tracking my progress and hopefully finding a community of positive people to share my journey with and who will let me be a part of theirs. I will write at least a little everyday, it’s a doable thing….it’s a small goal that I know I can reach and I think every success, no matter how minor it might seem, will make the big goals much easier to tackle.
