Well, the only five year goals i passed are the amazon one (a minor thing) and the living in one place one (a big one). And I do donate some time to animal charities. Everything else is a no-show.

That is okay though - i need to rework these.

Jilly -

These goals are five year goals and it's only been two years smile You shouldn't be disappointed about not reaching more than 2 of them! smile You should be thrilled that you hit two of them already!!

It is definitely fine to rework the rest to fit in with your new wonderful life - that's what long term goals are there for! Celebrate your victories, and retune your life!

And Jilly, I've seen through your various threads how you ARE working toward those five year goals!

You seem to be really focused, and you are inspiring other people around you to get inspired and focused on their goals too!

Thank you for saying so, deanna. I really want to make my life happy and fun and peaceful. I know i have a long way to go, but keeping accountable this way is helping.

Lisa, true, the living in one place one is HUGE for me. So that is very much worth celebrating.

The Amazon thing is so minor it's not really worth mentioning, but since it's very quantifiable I like to use it. It makes me feel good to see such easy cause and effect. I post reviews, the rank gets better. If only everything in life were so simple to see rewards from!

I have been donating time to animal charities and have also been donating a TON of time to helping my town thrive, using my skill set, so I feel good in the charity aspect.

Close friendships with people who are proximal to me is still important. I am still very much alone most of the time. I have friends but no CLOSE friends - no buddies to pal around with. Everyone has families that are their first concern.

Makes me miss what I had in my teen years and in college - people who were playmates.

I am not sure how to fix this except to allow for time to pass. Close friends don't just happen. Even if i started a club or something it would take time for closeness.

I do have an idea for a club of women business owners and even a list of people i want to invite. But this is not as important right now as other things I am working on.

I guess i can feel safe to say i would like to have close friends who i meet with weekly within five years?

As far as the hiking, camping and outdoor adventure goals, I need to plan this a whole lot better. Again, I need playmates. I don't mind hiking alone, but i like to have company driving to trailheads. I like to plan things with people so that they actually happen.

So i do need some ideas on this part. This isn't exactly a hiking sort of town. the hiking towns of flagstaff and sedona are a bit of a drive and so are not really spur of the moment places.

The amazon ranking thing is sooooo cool! I don't remember where I started out - 8 million maybe LOL!! I should go back and check - it was cool when they changed the way they count reviews - my ranking shot up!

We have some local meet-ups that have done pretty well.

I met my two best girlfriends in my homeschooling group.

I met two of my best metaphysical friends through a metaphysical meet-up.

I think the meet-up groups do work pretty good, you just have to be regular about attending.

Yes definitely friends take time to build so that is a wonderful long term plan, and it is OK that it will take a little while to happen. I think they will build naturally as you go about your other activities, interacting with people in town. Especially with the fantastic social networking sites you run!

For hiking, many areas have an "outdoors club" type of organization that helps members with those types of match-ups. I would have to guess there are some in the larger towns near you.

So for example I just google searched for Sedona Hiking Group and found this -

Sedona Hiking Group

Join up with the group and see if there's a hike you could join in on!
