I'm not scared of growing old, I'm just scared of not achieving everything that I want to do.
Sometimes I envision myself old and thinking about the past. I hope I don't have lingering regrets.
Then I wonder, will I have the privilege to grow old?
I think setting goals is easy, but planning on how to achieve those goals and having the right attitude is the difficult part.
Maybe that's why I've been so scattered lately? I need an action plan.
Listing my goals here seems a bit scary, but not as scary as having regrets.
My main goal in life is to be a kind and caring wife and mother.
I think following your heart, listening more than talking, giving more than you take, actively practicing patience and being slow to anger is a sure way to keep peace and love within the home. I also firmly believe being the example is the best way to teach my children.
Growing up, I always heard how you should have the heart of a servant, but I never really understood or wanted to accept the saying until Jack was around three. I respect the religion I was raised to believe, although I don't completely identify myself with it. Doing things without expecting something in return is liberating. It keeps your heart free of resentment.
I think that's a good start, but I think I'll write out a few ways to keep peace within our home that involves more organization.
What is goals do you have?
