Day by day


An impending new year gives rise to reflection and goal setting. What will your goals for 2014 be? It’s never to early to start thinking about self improvement!

Keep living. Seriously. Lately I’m setting goals day by day. It’s the only way succeed. What’s a new year but a sequence of new days? I’m too experienced in frustrations to set big goals for a year. I’m too used to unexpected failures or setbacks that make you change radically your plans.

One year ago I was sure my new year would be devoted to write a book but then my mom had an ictus and get paralysed and I get sick and was for a month in a hospital. Since my mom illness my life changed completely. She is priority now to me. My sister and I are taking care of her. She cannot be alone for a moment. It’s a blessing to have her. She’s 94 years old. Now we can give her back some of what she has given us during all her life. I don’t know for how long I would have her. I love her so much. I only want her as happy and comfortable as possible and ease her sufferings. She’s a person of faith and she feels peaceful in God’s hands.

So, back to the topic: I prefer to set little affordable goals for each day: Write an entry for my blog, read and organise documents and other material I have collected for my book if I can, take care of my mom… Life as usual, no big changes or new goals. Keep living.
