We have our own goals in life. Since we are small, we tend to think about some possibilities that we want to achieve if we grow old. Our goals may vary in different ways and manner. Some of you would want to finish your studies first, others would want to have a good and nice future with stable job, others would want to help his/her parents from poverty, etc. These are only some of the good examples of our goals in life that we want to achieve. I know some of you here have a one of a kind and unique goals in life and I know some of you had already achieved the goals that you tried to accomplish since before. Why not share it here guys and who knows maybe others would tend to copy the same way you do. Thanks.

As a child I played with dolls and I played secretary. All I ever wanted to do was be a mother. I was a secretary and I am a mother. As I grew older my dream was to become a published author. I have procrastinated on this a long time and am now trying to motivate myself into accomplishing this. I never, ever wanted to have to borrow money from my parents as I watched all my siblings do but because I had a bad first marriage and then became a single mother and then became ill and couldn't work, I have had to turn to my parents for help many times. If I could get my book published I could pay back the loan I owe my mother. That would make me extremely happy.

I have finished with Massage Therapy School and will get my licensing soon (once I take the Nationals which is tough). I plan to continue schooling to take other relaxaton therapies including counseling, possibly Morita Therapy as well as Esalon techniques and the Feldenkrais Method, which teaches awareness through movement and dance/movement therapy. At some point I want to to attend AIHT so that I can get fully licensed to become a reverend so that I can help others with an important rite of passage - marraige. And incorporate pastoral counseling - but not for an organized religion - into my practice. My ultimate goal is to have a practice within my home so that I can incorporate my home and work life. I like the field I am pursuing as it resonates with the person I am and the one I hope to nurture and cultivate even more. I want to grow in my compassion for others. My siblings and I plan to help my mom as she grows older as well in any way we need to. And of course, I want to be a wonderful mother and a complete and peaceful and vibrant woman. I guess I want it all.

My most important goal is to be able to take good care of my family, which would mean my parents and my own wife & children (some day). It would also be nice to amass great wealth and share that with people in need.

My utmost goal in my life is to retire at the ripe age of 46, and stay back and look at the kids go through the education until they "graduate" from my house. I want them to be able to look after themselves as soon as they have completed their college. I will be satisfied by that, as my spouse and I take to just doing stuff for fun and earn for it!
