Life Goals = It doesn’t matter your age to start having some life goals.
These goals can be done in a brain dump. Start a list of all the things you want out of life. Just put it down on paper. It could be near your calendar or anywhere you can see it. Write it down.
When I was in college, I did a life goals – and was so ready to start living. I wanted to get married, and have kids, and have a big house, and be happy. I wanted a dog and a cat. I wanted friends and to have big parties. That all did happen and more, however, I really needed to see how I wanted to feel in my life and not just the tangible things.
In order to have life goals and have the feelings of listed – I advise making a list for that.
I firmly believe that life is about 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to whatever happens. So, if you want to feel peace, happiness, joy, and other emotions in your life – make sure you make a list for those as well.
Gratitude – Be Grateful for what you do have. That seems easier said than done. I remember Oprah Winfrey saying to remain grateful during your life. It wasn’t until I realized that someone else really wanted my life that I started to being very grateful for my life.
Make Peace With Your Past – Your past is your past for a reason. You should try to forgive yourself for whatever is in your past in order to move forward. I was so angry when I found out my husband had cheated on me – but I eventually had to forgive him and move forward. That looks different for everyone – but I had to forgive myself as well. Life is too short to be caught up in your past.
Stop Comparing Yourself – I know with social media – it is sure hard to stop comparing your life with someone else. Especially when it is displayed for all to see. Try your hardest. Stop following people who make you feel like you are not enough. Be yourself and like that self. You do you. Let everyone else be themselves. Jealously is a rough one. But, do not let it get the best of you.
Intention – Know your intention when you react to something. If I need to say something to someone – I always lead in what I am intending to happen. Sometimes my intention is not good – so I have to proceed with caution – but if you know why you are doing something – you will go about yourself way better.
Kindness – Make sure that you lead your life with kindness. Kindness and love go hand in hand to me. Make sure that you are kind and the world will come back to you with kindness as well. Smile. Enjoy. Live the life like it will run out soon – because it will.
