What are your goals?

I want to know more about all you awesome people! I’d like to invite you all to share one or more of your goals with me – big or small! Whatever you want to share – I want to hear.

I’ll go first

I’ll share one of my goals that you all may not know about me. At some point in my life I want to do a TED talk. I don’t know on what yet, but I do know that I want to do one. I feel like I could really do a great TED talk on something if I really set my mind to it! Hope that doesn’t sound conceited! There are so many things I am passionate about and I would just really love to share that passion with everybody else on such an elevated platform. So here’s to hoping!

My second goal I’d like to share with you all is my desire to become a critical care/ER nurse. I am currently a nursing student and the area I want to specialize in is critical care because that’s the area that hits closest to me as I spent a lot of time growing up in the ER with my mother. So to me its my way of both fulfilling my need to help people and giving back to the same people who helped my mother and I.

Those are a couple of my goals and if you’re willing i’d love to hear what drives you and what you hope to accomplish!

  1. Lovely goals πŸ™‚ My growth goal is to live in abundance in all areas of my life. To be free of limiting and negative beliefs. To live in accordance with my higher self or soul.
    My experience goal it to build my home, have my book published, start a ship to home gourmet food business from the produce I grow on my farm.
    My contribution goal is to give back constantly to my community, family, society, world for all that has been given me, whether it’s with my talents, money, time, etc.

  2. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and honestly, I don’t really know.
    I guess my main goal is to be happy. To wake up every day genuinely happy. That’s not to say life will be stress free, or trouble free, but to be generally happy with most of the elements of my life… that’s really the only goal I’m working towards right now. It’s why I have a blog at all, to talk through all my shit, haha!

  3. I have a few personal goals:
    Write and publish a second novel (self-publishing is fine… I like the freedom of being “indie.”)
    Complete my A.S. in Web Programming
    Obtain a job that allows me to write and design and generally do creative things all the time.

    • Ooh computer courses are generally very hard I hear! Props to you. And I can sympathize with you with regards to writing and getting published (Thats another goal of mine too!) I hope you can find a job that will let your creativity flourish!


  4. My goal in life is to really live, love, and accept myself fully. Also, to not be afraid of being heard. And, well, to not be afraid. I feel that I let fear limit me because I don’t want to fail, get hurt, etc. I want to move beyond that emotion and conquer everything. My goal is to obtain clarity about what I want in my life and what path I want to take without fearing the consequences of my decisions. I want to be self assured in the choices I make and not second guess myself. I’d like to do everything that makes me happy without thinking about what others would think. I guess the goal is to keep improving myself and helping myself grow.

    Another goal is I want to publish a poetry book, one day. I want to leave a taste of my mind and tongue behind. I want to be quoted. I want to get back into meditating again. I want peace in myself. I want to finish college. I want to give my parents, sisters, and friends everything. I want to have something I can call my own one day. A business. I want to travel. I want to go to Italy and have pizza. I want to own a chocolate labrador. I want a job that i’m not going to hate and doesn’t require me to fold jeans when I don’t even fold mine.

    And, of course, be happy and magical.

    • One of the hardest things in life is accepting and loving ourselves. The hardest part I believe is accepting that we are deserving of happiness. As for being heard you have a voice and you are expressing it here, and while I don’t know you outside of wordpress if you express yourself as beautifully as you do on here Im sure people listen. I can totally empathize with you when you say you feel that you let fear limit yourself because you’re afraid of failing, and to be honest with you I am the same way. I think the fact that you want to move beyond that fear and find your own purpose in life is completely admirable, and I hope you keep at it.

      As for the second paragraph I can pretty much agree with everything you said. So again thank you so much for sharing. I’m sure you’ll reach that happy and magical feeling.

  5. My goals are to find happiness (which I figure out more every day), do something awesome with my degree (art related), and to help the world in a positive way!

  7. After leaving college back in the early 90s (2 years in) I finally returned in 2009 and finished my History degree in 2012. Working fulltime, being married with kids and in my late 30s it was a HUGE goal and I finally accomplished it. Took a vacation to Mexico. BLISS. It was as high as I have ever been. Since then it’s been difficult to grab hold of something that all-encompassing. I love my job as night metro editor for a daily newspaper in Augusta, Ga., but something has been missing. My writing. My spark. That’s what my blog is all about. Expressing myself creatively and finding a release from the daily-weekly grind. In the short term, I plan to continue to post a new short story each week (one part each day M-F) for the next 10-12 weeks. Then I would love to publish a book of poetry, perhaps a collection of short stories and eventually a novel (or 10). Thanks so much for starting this conversation. It’s been amazing. So many really cool folks. Thanks for following me as well!!

    • I love stories like this! I have nothing but respect for people who go back and finish college or start college once they are already working or whatever. It’s inspiring honestly. I’m glad you figured out what was missing in your life too. Writing is such a great outlet for people! Thanks for sharing man – i’m looking forward to reading your stories!

  8. I want to wake up one morning and find out that the housework fairy really exists. That she’s taken up residence under my stairs and is more than happy to stay. Then she might invite her friend the garden gnome to stay during the summer. My goals…to be organised enough to do the things I want at the weekend, not those things I don’t have time for during the week. One likkle step at a time, brings about great leaps towards the future.

    • Thank you for the kind words! Helping people is an inspiring passion in it’s own right and I’m always happy to see people trying to help others too!


  10. Reblogged this on Lesbian's Tale and commented:
    This sounds like something very interesting to get involved with. How many of you will pay, “Thoughts of A Rambling Psyche,” and record your goals?” Look for mine, to come soon.
