Do you have goals in life? 

I'm sure you do, but what about those that you often dream and think about, whether long term or short term, from the simplest to the most absurd, have you achieved most of them? 

I remember when I used to write my goals for the year every New Year. I'd write them at the back of my planner, then cross them out when I've done them. And it feels so good when I get to accomplish some. My lists then we're short and simple... achievable within a year of course, like read at least 5 books or go to the beach this summer, and some other stuff like that.

Just recently, my husband and I have been discussing our goals in life, our dreams for our family. This inspired me to make a note of all my goals in life, in general. Since I became a mom, the "me" time and even our couple dates have dwindled to quite a few instances. But I'm not worried. Being a mom, or a parent for that matter, shouldn't be a hindrance to our goals, right? Your goals just get bigger and they multiply!

I was also inspired by my co-mommy bloggers Martine and Ginger who made a list of their own goals over at their blogs. I may have simpler goals than they do, but what the heck, anyone can dream big can't they? So I'll try to set some higher goals for me in this list, and I hope to accomplish them sooner or later :)
