I’m sick of seeing hashtags and people gawking over these ridiculous and most of the time unattainable goals of being in the perfect, Instagram-ready relationship. I’m not concerned with losing myself in love because I know that will come within time, and I’ve got bigger ambitions in the meantime. Screw relationship goals — I want to achieve some major life goals.
I want a career.
My main priority is securing a job that I love going to every day. I want to wake up and own it, 100%. I don’t want to waste my time sitting in an office doing tasks that don’t matter. Wherever I end up, I want to make a difference and learn as much as I can.
I want a steady paycheck.
Struggling for money is not in the books for me. A steady paycheck will motivate me to save and look forward to experiencing all that I can. I want to be able to support myself, do what I want and say no as little as possible. I don’t want to struggle to make ends meet — I want to live comfortably and relatively stress-free, at least when it comes to money.
I want time to travel.
Before I get too busy and have to worry about a family, I want to travel as many places as possible. I want to experience different cultures, try exotic foods and walk around places that take my breath away. I want to be shown how tiny I am in this big world and how much good there is to live for.
I want good friends.
Wasting my time with people who don’t make me better is just something I’m not interested in. I want friends who accept me, love me and will always have my back. It takes a while to find lifetime friends but they’re out there and I plan on having the best ones.
I want to eat good food.
My palette needs as much goodness in this world as it can take. I want to eat food at every restaurant there is and try cuisine I usually wouldn’t even consider. I never want to be told that I shouldn’t eat something or that I’ve had too much.
I want a puppy.
I want a dog to take care of and love with all my heart. They are one of the most affectionate and selfless animals there are and will always make your life better. I want to take on the world with my dog and and know that they are always there for me.
I want to take control of my health.
I want to take care of myself. I want nutrition, exercise and smart choices to be part of my daily routine because it’s what will cause me to live life to the fullest. If I’m taking care of myself, I’m truly proving that I plan to stay here a while.
I want stylish clothes.
I want a closet with the hottest trends. I want people to ask me “where did you get that?!” because they just need to get their hands on it. Fashion makes me feel confident, trendy and fun. I just want to look good.
I want a sick apartment with a view.
At some point, I need an apartment with a balcony overlooking an awesome view. So that no matter what’s going on in m crazy life, I can come here and find serenity. Even if it’s only a year of crazy rent, I want that view.
I want a place to call home.
I want to make wherever I go, a place to call home. I never want to feel lost or lonely. I want to always be able to return to my sanctuary to recharge and replenish myself in order to stay motivated and focused.
I want my family to be happy.
The happiness of my family means the world to me. I want to do everything I can to be there, support and love my family regardless of the distance between us. As long as my family’s okay, I’ll be okay.
I want to be happy.
Like really, truly, completely happy. I don’t care what life I end up with as long as I’m happy doing it. I know the goals I have today could change tomorrow but as long as I have a positive mindset and spread good vibes, I’m bound to achieve that.
