Got Goals?

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

I don’t.

A friend from a writing group I belong to wrote a post outlining her goals for the month of February. It made me happy to see how well it worked for her the previous month. I believe in the power of positive thinking and goal setting but I am stuck.

So stuck.

I have no goals. I’m drifting aimlessly for the first time in my life. Obviously, I’m happily churning away here and on various freelance projects but I’m not actively seeking more and can’t figure out why. I’ve talked about it with a few friends and most think it’s because of our current nomadic existence.


I am way out of my element but my life is comfortable and full of happiness. The kids have been sleeping fairly well. I have no clue what’s going on. I can’t motivate myself to scheme or dream up anything exciting. It’s very unlike me. I’m trying to force myself back in to a writing routine to see if that helps me get back to pitching or book writing mode because I do love to write. I’m not going to abandon it and it seems reckless to continue without a plan.

Where is my motivation?

The year is still fresh and I’ve read countless posts about new beginnings, making this the best year yet, and all that happy faced glittery stuff but it won’t rub off on me. I’m so blah when it comes to motivation lately.

I think it’s a cycle. I haven’t set goals because I don’t know what I want. I don’t know what I want so there are no goals to set. Am I making any sense?

2012 was an incredible year for me and so far 2013 has been as well. I have everything I need and want. Should I want more? What happened to my motivation? I try to remind myself that this state of temporary stagnation won’t last forever.

I hope.


How do you motivate yourself?

Thought I’d pop in and share some of my work around the blogosphere.

Oh and a fellow Ivy League MBA mom kindly gave me a shout out on the Tuck Business School Admissions blog. Marce and I are living parallel lives. I absolutely love peeking into her corner of the Ivies.



New gig.

Mommy Noire

I am so excited to share my happy news with you. I am working with a fabulous new site called Mommy Noire. It’s the hottest place for “mature, multicultural women seeking organic dialogue about parenthood in the digital space”.

Mommy Noire fills a niche that was seriously underrepresented and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of it. I know that most of my readers come from rich and diverse backgrounds. Mommy Noire is the spot for you. If you know me well then you’ve heard me complain (too often) about the lack of large scale online resources for moms who care about diversity of all kinds.

I’m honored to write for MommyNoire. I think it’s exactly what a lot of us have been waiting for and I am estactic to be part of their freelance writing team.

I’d love it if you checked out a few of my posts and shared your thoughts.

Thanks so much for all your support xo
