This is usually the time of year when most adults, especially women; make a mental and/or physical list of goals for the year.
I for one make a list of goals on a weekly basis, yes weekly. Nothing major like going to the moon and back before lunch time, just small but important to me, goals. One example is finishing a book I’m reading, or exercising every morning before work sometimes I have the same goals every week until my project is complete.
My point dear reader is that just like my goals and my planning for those goals, our relationships are the same. Just sitting around waiting for something to happen is the same is doing nothing.
So yes we, my husband and I have conversations about our future. we have goals; we don’t added them to our calendars, yet, but we will now. I realize that whether it’s your relationship with your neighbor, best friend, husband, boyfriend, lover you need to know where you’re going.
What is it that you both want to do together what new, exciting , boring , fantastic, ok , not so fun but necessary goal would you like to experience with this person. Whatever that may be; going out to the movie theater, the park , traveling locally or abroad, shopping, window shopping, club activities, playing a sport or some other mental game, etc.
These and over millions of other options are all experiences we as adults have the right to enjoy.
So yes next time you speak with your husband, wife, friend, family and the conversation about doing something comes up, go ahead set a date, time and place at that moment and watch it happen.
Because why wait, life does not wait for you so why should you wait to live your life.
