Being a college student leads to many thoughts about my future every day. I’m constantly thinking of ways I can improve my future and make more money.
I have also been factoring in something that is EXTREMELY important yet most people overlook. I did indeed say factor in, but this is the most important thing of all when thinking about my future.
I think about what will make me happiest in the present and long run, and that’s how I determine my goals.
Maybe some might not agree with this and some might have the mentality of having to do things you don’t want in order to get what you want in the long run, I don’t believe it has to fully be that way 100%.
So what are exactly my goals for the future?
My number one more important goal is to travel the world before my traveling time might be limited. I’ve been to almost 10 cities this year in the USA, but I hope to venture off in the summer.
Being in college obviously leaves me strained in the financial department, but I make things work. I don’t make money a huge factor into whether or not I am going on a trip or not, I just make it work. I believe the experiences I get from traveling are far more important than money, but I do understand I need to be responsible.
All I’m saying is I’ve noticed that I take more trips without thinking so much about the financial burden. Money can be made at almost any time, but time is constantly passing by so I’m making sure to get as many experiences as I can under my belt instead of working all the time. (Which is frankly what I’ve been doing the past few years of my life).
Another goal of mine for the future (but also present) is to focus on becoming as independent as possible and finding myself. I have always been the type to rush into relationships, but I’ve realized that I’ve been having the best experiences when I am single.
Not to say that I didn’t have good experiences in my relationships, but I believe focusing on yourself and figuring out who you are is by far the most amazing thing in life. I am constantly figuring out new things about myself and it feels amazing.
I’ve never felt so strong in my life.
So what is my overall goal in life?
This would be settling down with a family one day, in a nice country house with a couple dogs. I’d like to live somewhere that has tons of area to play around with. Although I am a city girl deep down, I’d like to get comfortable in an area where I am not smashed into one tiny area.
I’d like to be able to work full time at home and spend as much time as possible with my family.
