I've struggled with this idea lately. I'm know there are people out there with lists of things they wish to accomplish at some point in their lives, but until recently, I have not counted myself as one of those people.
Really. There are people who always wanted to go to Europe, or they always wanted to have a baby, or they always wanted to go snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, or they always wanted to get a Ph.D. etc., etc.
I, on the other hand, have had a sad tendency to sort of just take what God has offered up to me. I only vaguely had an interest in what college I would attend (though I knew I would attend college). I probably would never have chosen librarian as a career except one day someone suggested that I do it. I didn't really have any other life plan at the time, so I said "Why not?" Even the travels that I have been fortunate enough to embark on have been the result of spontenaity, rather than a life goal of traveling to said destination.
At any rate, I've given this quite a bit of thought lately and I am pleased to annouce that I do have a goal in life and it is this:
to live a life free from the burden of unneccessary possessions.So this would be the time to start selling on ebay again!
Oh yeah, tomorrow night I will be attending a meeting regarding my children's school dress code. Stay tuned....
