Tomorrow will come when it does. But I want to make today count, too. And I want today to count every day, no matter how tired, shitty, or unmotivated I feel. When I don’t accomplish what I want and when I do, I try to remember to be appreciative of the time I have NOW because it’s the only time I have, right?

Sometimes it’s scary to feel alone in [learning to be] more confident in my self-expression, whether that’s with people I meet or in what I choose to do in life

[…] even though it seems like everyone has something to do and accomplish, something to catch up on because they’ve run short on time, it’s okay to be alone, feeling like all you have is time and possibilities. It’s okay to be writing a blog entry that maybe no one will read because I have dreams and goals. It’s okay to be doing anything and feeling alone in the process. Because honestly, everyone has too much on their own plate to be worrying about where you’re going and what you’re doing. I’m not saying no one has an interest in one another, but we all have something we either want to accomplish or need to accomplish that nobody else can do but you.

Whenever we fulfill a goal, value comes from two outcomes: changes (usually gains) in resources and satisfaction

Keywords: about writing , my writing , thoughts and reflections , goals , outcomes , writing

Gains in resources don’t have to be monetary — they can be in terms of knowledge and experience. Satisfaction comes from completing goals, and the feeling of that satisfaction differs by where it comes from. The deepest satisfaction comes from satisfying higher-order goals, goals that come from higher values like beauty, truth, and accomplishment.
