Kristin posted a link to Maggie Mason's blog (Mighty Girl) the other day. I read that blog a lot and I think I get a lot out of it. Mostly because Maggie really is fantastic. Sometimes I think it'd be pretty great to be just like her when I grow up (except that she and I are likely about the same age). The problem is, occaisionally I get this weird nagging feeling when I'm reading Mighty Girl. There's a lot of talk about goal setting and making up a "Life List". I feel really kind of weird about the fact that I don't have one. I really don't. I think this might be one of the few eras in my life when I really could care less about goals. And I'm mostly pretty happy about that, even though I get that kind of nagging feeling when I read that practically everyone else in the world is working on theirs. Is it wrong for my one and only life list item to be content enough that I don't need a life list?
Ok ok, I know I'll get back to one eventually. I have some pretty strong feelings about the importance of continual improvement, striving for better, etc.. but right now, the best person I want to be is to be someone who isn't constantly pushing toward a goal.
I'm still ok, right?
Talk to you soon,
