My Life Goals

Over my lifetime there have been certain qualities I think have been instilled into my heart, mind and soul. My parents, my experiences in church, school, with friends, and everything that touched my life gave me a longing for these qualities. So years ago I wrote this poem about my life’s goals. I was fortunate enough to have loving parents, grandparents and relatives, which gave me a great foundation on which to form my personality, morals, ethics and goals.  I am so thankful that I had/have a loving family and a God who loves me and leads me. Without these factors, I don’t know how my life would have been.  I want to make this world a better place even if it is just in my small area of influence. So here are some of my goals to lead me so I can effectively make a difference.

To give liberally, of time and effort, a gifts flowing, hands open generosity.

To appreciate the wonders of our world, a constantly thankful heart .

To be compassionate to those who suffer, a heartfelt empathy.

To dream of a better future, a life fulfilling aspiration.

   To work tenaciously, an energetic, dedicated labor.

To laugh joyfully, a side splitting, tears flowing mirth.

To view life reverently, a wide-eyed, awe-filled studying.

To live life passionately, a loving, joyful, vibrant existence.

  To learn peace through study, love and inner wisdom, a fulfilled life.

      To share God’s love, through word and deed, a life of service and learning.
