On Visions and Goals

Updated: Aug 19, 2022


We're in the second half of this year! I'm starting to see oranges and browns, greens and reds in the near future.


My husband told me Thanksgiving and Christmas are still quite a way down the road. I reminded him that time flies. And if we do not plan way ahead, these wonderful occasions to celebrate and give thanks will come as a jolt.


Since high school, planning has been a part of me. I remember having a notebook or a planner where I jot down my goals and schedules. Funny that with the phone calendar, the notepad, and all the advance ways one could do this, I still stick to a notebook.


What good is a plan when things don't turn out as we had envisioned? I learned this during Covid. Well, a plan doesn't have to be set in stone. But I like to know where I am going, what I am going to use my time and resources on. If I don't have a plan, I feel like a floating piece of wood on the river just going where the current takes me. There is no resistance whatsoever. As they say, "Just go with the flow."


I don't like subscribing to that way of living. I like the focus, the idea, the vision. I like to put my energies to a goal instead of having my energies scatter. And even if I fail, that's okay. At the very least, I learned something.


As to Covid, I still keep my vision, though I have become more adept at coping and adapting to a new way of doing things. And that is what life is about. Learning to move on despite the challenges and trials that come our way. Yet, we should not lose sight of our vision.


Just like Jesus who never did.
