At some point in everyones life we all have goals to which we want to achieve. They can be anything from becoming a firefighter, stripper, or policeman to having sex with the hot redhead you went to school with who is now married and living in Texas or becoming a famous sports athelete. No matter what it is we do our best to believe at some point we will reach those goals. Depending on our age we either just dream about them then move on or we actively pursue those goals.
For myself I had several goals in life from when I was little to even now at 40 years old. Some people may give up on their goals for a number of reasons, the most common being because they are continually let down from being prevented from achieving them. Unfortunately these things do happen but I say never give up on them no matter how many times you have to try or how long it takes even if it takes 20 years to reach them.
My goals in life were simple. From a very early age I knew I was going to go into the Air Force. I believe that was in my genetic makeup. I knew I was going to retire from the Air Force as well. Originally I had planned to go for 30 years but knee injuries changed that and I retired after 20 years. During my teen years I had a goal to sleep with as many girls as possible, well I didn’t sleep with all the girls I wanted too but did with several before I got locked into a girlfriend. After I had my daughter after marriage I wanted a boy, I got him, and then another girl. I set goals to see as much of the world as I could. I didn’t get to see all the places I wanted but I did see a lot. I had a goal for the majority of my marriage to one day be divorced. After 15 years I finally asked for it and at 16 1/2 it was granted. Then I fell in love with this redhead living in Texas that I went to school with. I made it my goal to be with her and I would wait as long as I had to and I did and we are now married.
I now have new goals. To walk my oldest down the aisle in March, to see my son go off to college this year and someday see him reach his goals, get married, and be successful as well as the same for my oldest and youngest daughter and my two step-children. I also have a goal to become a federal civilian and I am working on that as we speak. I have another goal to get out of these ghetto apartments and into a house and I have every intention on reaching that goal as well as paying off everything owed to my ex from when I had no job and in 4 years never worrying about paying her another dime or talking to her every again.
So what goals did you have in life and what are your current goals now?
