We all have goals in life and that is a good thing. I had my own bucket list at age 28. I wanted to be married and have children, to own a house, to learn how to snow ski, to see the Aurora Borealis and to see a moose in the wild. At the time none of those things seemed possible, but I have done all of them except the last two. I go through life thinking things like "If I can just finish high school everthing will be great" or If I could just get married everything will be alright or If could just pay off all my bills I wont have any more problems. The reality is that none of those things on their own make my life wonderful. As soon I reach one goal I am off to the next. Right now I want to finish a novel I am writing and of course when I finish it everyone will love me then because I am such a great writer. Yeah right. I have learned it really it really isnt about what I achieve it is about who I become while I am along the way, and there will always be more to challenges. I dont think I will ever arrive at that place where I will be happy ever after and that is okay. Maybe that realization is how we arrive.
