Day 13: My Life Goals

So today's question is, "What exactly are my life goals?"  That's a nice light question to consider, right?  My first thought was to refer you to my bucket list.  I mean, those are sort of my life goals.  They should totally count.  Except that kind of seems like the easy way out.  So here goes nothing...

I want to back to school.  Some days, I think I want to be a principal.  Other days, I think higher education, teaching other teachers.  Right now, it looks as though I will probably go back in the next couple of years.  Maybe.  We'll see.

I want to be the kind of teacher students know believed in them.  Because I do.  In the same vein, I want to travel more so that I can take my adventures into my classroom.  Many of my students haven't been out of the region, much less to another country.  I want them to know that there's so much more out there to see and do, even if they choose to build their lives here.

I would like to have a husband (maybe even kids) to share my life with.  Or at the very least, a nice couch to share my life with...

But more than anything, I want to be the person God intends for me to be.  I want to live out the tenants of my faith with fidelity.  I want to wake up every more with praises and go to bed the same way, no matter what I face during the day.  If don't accomplish any other goal, I hope I achieve this one.


  1. I love your list. If I did not have kids, I would love to go back to school! I would like to head into the medical field. :)

  2. I don't have the stomach for the medical field! I let my brother and sis take care of that part of the family tradition. I will gladly shoulder the education part!
