Wow, just that title stuns me a little. I never thought I’d have a “career”. I guess that’s just one of the little ways you know you’ve found your niche. I can actually see myself doing what I do for the long haul.
So, I was thinking last night, “What do I want out of my life?” The truth is, I’ve always been a fairly simple kind of person. Not in the mental sense, obviously, but in the sense that I don’t need a ton of stuff or action to be happy. I like a pretty laid-back life, and my goals… Well, I’m not sure if they’re small or insanely huge, I guess it depends on how you look at it. Either way, I’m still going for it.
My life and work goals go pretty well hand-in-hand. I want to help the world in as many ways as I can. I want to make a name for myself as someone who did what they could and made a difference. I want to be remembered with fondness when I die. A lot to ask for? Maybe, Maybe not. At any rate, my writing plays into that. I want to write great stuff, build a large audience and have my love spread around the world. As all that comes together, the money will increase along with it.
I want to make enough money to better my own life. I want a place of my own with no roommates, a car that runs, good food on the table, and enough to spare for a few indulgences now and again. I don’t want to struggle, I want to be comfortable.
As for me, well, I want to get in better shape, cure the rest of my health issues and just become the best person that I can be. I’m always working and growing, and I never want to stop. When I take my last breath, I want it to be with a smile on my face and the knowledge that I was the best me that I could possibly be, and people will remember me with love.
