Accountability, to oneself
I have to admit, there are times when I just want to leave right this second. And other times when I feel like I may be getting cold feet. Well maybe just chilly feet. Life here is pretty comfortable. Government jobs. Nice city. Great lifestyle. Cultural and outdoor spaces to enjoy. But I know this is the right decision.
Sometimes though we have these ideas in our head of things we’d like to do, but until we start telling people or writing them down, we don’t actually accomplish them. If we don’t share our ideas, no one is there to hold us accountable. That’s why I like group fitness classes. By showing up, you are telling the class that you care about your health. That you want to have a workout. The other people are there to hold us accountable. Afterall, no one wants to be the one who gets off their spin bike half way through the class because it’s challenging and not fun and probably a million other things you’d rather be doing.
But throughout life I’ve found that writing down your goals, ambitions whatever you may want to achieve, you hold yourself accountable. Kinda like this blog. Though I may have chilly feet, my idea is out there so it’s bon voyage for me! But more than that, you also may start to meet other people who are holding similar thoughts. Or you may find someone to encourage you when you too get chilly feet.
