Personal Goals: Starting All Over Again

I’m resetting the clock on my goals. I try to carry them out roughly every 3 or 6 months at a time. I don’t wait to make a New Year’s Eve resolution, I do this all the time.

Have I succeeded? In some areas, I’ve made progress. It is easier to change the external with regards to weight, hair length, skin, etc. than the internal.

My hair is still heading in a nice direction. I’m cutting off an inch, or more, at the end of October. On the full moon? Perhaps. It’s knotty at the ends, and I want to get the comb through it easier.

Next Goal:
I want to lose another 10-15 lbs. I won’t aim higher, because it takes a very long time for me to lose even a pound. I lose roughly 2-4 lbs a month, if I don’t slack off.

As for my hair, my goal is for it to reach 3-6 inches past the armpit. If I can wear it 2-4 inches past the shoulders, even with shrinkage, I’ll be pleased.

The 2 Most Difficult Goals
These long standing goals relate to dealing with people. I’m the introverted, shy, retiring, quiet type. Everything that I read, hear, and know about achieving these last 2 goals cannot be achieved without constant and continuous contact with people.

The Introvert’s Dilemma
These are very rough tasks to ask of an Introvert. It’s been a struggle all my life, and I have to continue to deal with it. There are so many things I could have accomplished by now if it wasn’t for my Introversion.

It’s like going through life covered in several suffocating veils. I spend half my time trying to yank these things off, while trying not to enjoy the cover, solitude, and isolation they provide.

No Time to Waste
It’s very very important for me to achieve these last 2 goals. To be frank, these are life changing and necessary.

So, from now until the end of the year, or the beginning of the new year, I’ve got major goals to continue carrying out.
