I’m participating in The Getting to Know The Blogger Challenge hosted by A Little Unhinged. I took a day off for Thanksgiving, but now today I am talking about my goals.
9) What are your goals?
A while back, a friend of mine was going through a very tough time in her life. When addressing what was going on, she simply said this: “I want to get back to enjoying my life, not just simply existing in it.” How very well said. This is something that I put in the back of my mind as I have been on my journey. As we continue to try to build our lives back after years of school and unemployment, I’m hoping I’ll get there eventually.
My goal is to find something that I can feel good about and be successful at. For now I’m pursuing writing and blogging. I hope that maybe the road will lead to something that I can do for a living. I would love to help support my family again, but maybe in a way that I find fulfilling. Maybe someday it will be possible for me to go back to school, but for now I’m not so sure it’s in the cards for me.
I want to raise my kids to see that people who work hard and stick to it can achieve anything. My husband has proved that this is true, but I’m still struggling with that concept. I want them to find their niche in life that I can’t seem to find for myself. I just want them to be happy, feel safe, and secure. Isn’t that what we all want for our kids?
