This week's topic for Heads or Tails Tuesday is "Getting There". There are so many stories to be told on this topic, so many different journeys and destinations to be reached in so many ways.
It seems like in life we are always getting there. Anytime we achieve one goal, reach one plateau, or triumph, there is another challenge just around the bend waiting for us. Sometimes people say that it's all about how you get there, but what would getting there be if we never reached our goals or destinations?
Right now I'm trying to get somewhere on a huge goal of mine. I need to become a better person, physically. I know that this will also help me mentally. I am currently in the middle of my 5th week on Weight Watchers, and I'm getting used to eating better and trying to exercise more. It's really slow going, and it can be frustrating... but I'm getting there.
I'm trying to find my voice and figure out where I fit in the world of writers. I'm trying to decide what direction I want to go in, and figure out how to nurture the voice I know is inside me. It's not always easy, and it's certainly not clear yet... but I'm getting there.
My husband and I haven't been able to spend enough time together lately. We have both been stressed about various things, and we have both felt like there isn't enough time in the day to get everything we want done done, let alone have a minute to ourselves, or to sit and talk to each other. I'm in the process of arranging weekly or bi-weekly date nights with my Mom watching Sam. We need to reconnect, and it hasn't happened quite yet... but we're getting there.
We're currently undertaking trying to get Sam to stay in his bed at night and go to sleep. Today he only got up and had to be put back twice. It's hard to listen to him cry. He doesn't go to bed easily... but he's getting there.
Life is a journey, where are you headed right now?
