Do you have goals? I mean sometimes I think of what I want but, I don’t think I’ve ever sat down and wrote out my goals. The thought of a five-year plan doesn’t scream, top priorities. Could just be the kind of person I am, I know a lot of people who have had everything planned out for a while. I am the first one of my local friend group to have children and I doubt that I’m the only person who thought that I would be the last to start a family. Things unexpected happen all the time but, it doesn’t hurt to try to have a guideline for the way you want your life to turn out.
Knowing your goals is a good way start to reaching them. I mean, it is easier to run to a destination than to zig zag around. Where do you start? Well what do you want? I always try to avoid starting with material items. I love the mind-set that health & happiness comes first! It would be nice to have a Unicorn and Jet Ski but even if I had those and I wasn’t healthy and happy, I wouldn’t enjoy them very much.
One of my biggest goals is to be a better parent or I guess you could say a better version. Maybe every parent has that goal. I wake up every morning and think to myself, do better, be better. Education is next on my list of goals, upgrading to brush up on subjects that are a little rusty. Third is to spend more time by myself, to learn to be ok with who I am. Something important that I think will take a long time to accomplish! I also want to be more involved with my community.
These are small goals that I think I can wake up everyday, and be excited to work on. You need something to wake up and push towards, you know? Or else you start thinking why in the world do I even wake up. It’s one thing to have to go to your job or to take care of your children. But what do you do for yourself, to make you want to get out of bed every morning, for you?
I’d love to hear what you guys do! Leave me a comment below! I hope everyone enjoys their day!
