I just changed my tag line. It was Thoughts, Musings, Plans and Reflections which honestly, felt a little mushy to me – too amorphous. Okay, that is what I am doing here, but it doesn’t say why. I think it was because I didn’t have a clear picture of it myself.
However, after the last couple of posts, things are starting to become a little clearer. I could see a shape and direction to this blog, which is coincidentally, to put shape and direction to my life. Here are some of the concepts I was playing with, you can see my thought progression:
Finding a Good Fit
Answering the age old question, “Where do you want to be in 10 years?”
Creating a Life
The Next 20 Years
The Next 20 Years – my goals, the journey, and discovering who I want to be.
The Next 20 Years – discovering how I want to live.
The Next 20 Years – Becoming the Woman I Want to Be and the Life I Want to Live.
Becoming the Woman I Want to Be and Discovering the Life I Want to Live
Interesting, eh? I really like the idea of putting a 20 year goal out there, but I didn’t like the way it looked in the tagline. (It made the words wrap.) Besides, I turn 39 in September so really this should be “Where I Want to Be in 21 Years or So” and that didn’t feel right either. So, I took it off for the tagline, but I think I will keep the concept.
I like the idea of putting some hard time frames out there. What do I want my life to look like when I am 60? When I am 50? When I am 45? How do I want to be living? What do I want to be more of? Less? And as importantly, Who do I want to be?
That last question deserves a post (or six) to itself, so I won’t try to answer any of this today. For now I am just going to be happy in my accomplishment of starting to define my purpose. I like that.
