Visualizing goals 3/1718
I visualize the goal of a tidy, serene, space, surrounded by my pets, music, books, maybe a glass of wine, and I feel happy. Yet thinking about the steps necessary to achieve this goal - finding “homes” for the things I’ve taken out, used, and failed, as usual, to put away (a task I despise), fills me with anxiety. My ADHD self does not like doing things it doesn’t like to do. Despite the fact that I can spend countless enjoyable hours cleaning my outdoor space, arranging it to my liking , and planting and tending to my garden , the notion of house as garden has not fully entered my consciousness. At least not until this precise moment, an AHA moment. Huh.
