Life of a Blogger: Goals and Dreams

Full list of Life of a Blogger topics.

Last week’s topic: Achievements

This week’s topic: Goals & Dreams

To tell you the truth, I don’t really have many goals or dreams, so this is kind of hard for me!


I still haven’t 100% decided on what I want to do with my life yet. For years and years (like, since I was 6 up until I was 20) I wanted to be a veterinary doctor. But after I started working in the field, I realized I didn’t anymore.

Since I started blogging and doing some design things, my new dream is to become a designer. But, there’s some days I doubt. I don’t know if I’m cut out for it, or if I’m 100% sure it’s what I want to do. It seems so out of reach that I don’t know if I can get there. I don’t even know where to start. That may sound negative, and I know I should believe in myself, but it’s just so hard sometimes.

Truthfully, all I really want is to work for myself and still make good money at it. I don’t want to struggle to make ends meet my whole life. I want to live comfortably, yet still have the extra money to do frivolous things from time to time. Mainly, I want the wiggle room when it’s needed. Example: If our furnace dies (god forbid!) and we have to replace it; I want to have the money to do that, immediately, without any worries, instead of stressing and struggling to figure out where to come up with the money.


My main goal for this year is to get back down to what I was 5 years ago (7-8 inches smaller and 35 pounds lighter) before I get married in November!

After that…I don’t really know lol. I’m not gonna lie, I don’t really think about the future very much. I don’t have a plan for life. Probably not a good thing, but oh well…

Next week’s topic: What superpower would you choose?

Your turn! Make your own post telling everyone about your goals and dreams and link up :)

  1. I actually just have a dream to be successful and happy. I hope that the success will come AFTER I’m happy and life can be good. I’m not naive, though. I know that there WILL be bumps and that’s totally good with me :)

  2. These are fantastic goals and dreams! I wish you luck with them. I completely understand not knowing what you want to do with your life. I start university next year and I’m going in as an English major to be a teacher, but a part of me feels like it isn’t where I’ll be in the end. A part of me thinks I should get into International Relations because I enjoy politics and travelling, and am passionate about the UK, where I could try and get a job.

    So yeah, definitely understand. Good luck, dear. <3

  3. I would love to work for myself too :) I have dreams of “early retirement” – which means I want to amass enough money that I can stop working and just blog and read all day LOL. I learned about this “early retirement” thing originally from a blog called Mr. Money Mustache – but there are other blogs and things out there about it as well! I also have dreams of owning a tiny house – like from the tiny house movement ( and perhaps on a tiny farm :) ).

  4. I totally understand how you feel. I recently turned 24 and I still am not 100% sure what I want to do with my life. I went to school for fashion design but then realized that I don’t necessarily want to do that as a career. It was more of a hobby and now I don’t even sew anymore. I’d also love to work for myself & be financially stable, I just have to figure out how I’m going to get there first lol
