Goals and Happiness
I have thought a lot about what my goals should be for this site. I see other people have set theirs as paying off credit cards, student loans, or mortgages. I am fortunate enough to have no debt to speak of, but then on the other hand I am also very far off from having a mortgage. When I created this site a month ago my original goal was simple, Happiness. Since then I've changed it numerous times and have now settled upon "I'm just trying to improve my situation". You might say that I've downgraded my expectations, but that's not the case.
Happiness, I think, is the end goal that we are all trying to reach, but I have difficulty describing what that would mean to me.
Being financially secure?
Being in a situation where I am able to help others?
I really couldn't tell you. I can't even tell you what I want to be when I grow up and I'm 24 years old.
So until I figure out what happiness means to me, I feel I can't go wrong with just trying to improve my situation. Happiness will hopefully join me somewhere along the way.
