Goals and Obsessions

I’m usually pretty obsessed with goal-setting.

But, boy, oh boy, is this not the season for that.

And it is humbling.

There are so many things that I have wanted to do and had the good fortune to be able to do those things. However, right now, the math doesn’t work for the things that I want to get done and the time that there is for those things.

Part of me feels like I just need to give setting goals a break.

The other part of me really likes to make goals, and meet them.

So, for this summer, I have scaled back yet again.

I want to lean in to rosé season.
I want to make and drink lots of teas and lemonades.
I want to get outdoors more in my very favorite season.
And I want to get into hummus.
And my one-page-zine making. I want to actively continue with that project. I most certainly have not been daily with this, but I have done enough that it is achieving what I wanted to achieve with it.

The hummus thing is where obsession really creeps in.

I was wasting time scrolling on TikTok as one does and fell right into a hummus rabbit hole. And I want to make and eat more of it.

I just woke up from a dream where I was being told to scale back on the way that I attempt to plan and provide food for my family. That’s not the reason for wanting to get into hummus, but what feels like a sign that I’m on the right track.

I feel like making room for repeating something that I know that I enjoy will give me more mental space, but also allow me some room to spice things up.

We’ll see.

In the meanwhile, I’ll be wrecking my FYP page by actively seeking hummus videos.
