All throughout high school and college, I never could truly identify what I wanted; namely what or where I wanted to be. I never took the time to sit and actually think about what it was I wanted to do! I set goals, but I never really understood the significance or purpose of them, namely because I did what I thought others expected of me.For example my college degree. I earned a BS in Biology which I worked hard for and I’m certainly proud of. It’s a respectable degree, but honestly I knew I never wanted to be a Biologist or anything….you live and you learn right? I’ve learned that I need to make goals for what I want! Goals that will bring me satisfaction and help me form the kind of life I want to be living!
January is all about goals. And it’s true, goals keep you focused and prevent you from just wondering aimlessly. They allow you to establish a path and track your progress. But they also make it easy to simply go through the motions. Think of it like this; you’re wearing blinders so all you can see is what’s ahead and you’re completely unaware of what directly surrounds you. Don’t let those blinders creep up on you while you work hard towards your goals because you could miss all of the beauty and amazing opportunities that surround you right now!
