My Longterm Goals

Happy Monday everyone. I know that (believe it or not) we are getting close to a new year and that means New Years Resolutions. I will be making those at the start of 2018, but today's post is more a note to my future self so that I never become complacent with what I have done so far. 

I think it is important to set goals and dreams for yourselves. I am writing them down in this post so that I never forget to work hard for them. 

One // Go on a Mission Trip I'm Passionate About

I have only been on one mission trip with my church and I really liked it. It was a great introduction into what a mission trip entails but it has been years since then. I have been given a big love for orphans and special needs children specifically and am hoping to one day find a mission trip that serves those kids specifically. Whether God wants me somewhere close or half way across the world, I want to spend time serving and learning to be like Christ. I also need to overcome my fear of airplanes! ;)

Two // Get a Masters Degree & Doctorate Degree

I am studying Elementary Education and so I obviously value the importance of a good education. I plan on getting my Masters online during my first years of teaching but why stop there? While I have the momentum, (and debt) I should just get a Doctorate degree too right? :)

Three // Run a Half Marathon

This was actually one of my New Years Resolutions from this past January but I quickly realized that this isn't the season of life for that right now. As much as I love running, I really only have time with working a part time job, being a full time student, volunteering, and having a social life, to workout for 30-45 minutes a day. Training for a 10k was such a process for me last year, and it felt so great crossing that finish line. I would love to at some point in my life cross the finish line of a half marathon. Mainly, I just want to tell people that I am a "half-marathoner".

Four // Be "Teacher of the Year"

This is again just for bragging rights, but if it keeps me working hard as a teacher, why not? :)

Five // Adopt a Child with Down Syndrome

This is faaarrrr in the future but I have such a LOVE for that extra chromosome! 

Six // Write a Children's Book

Y'all know my love for reading and children's books specifically. How awesome would it be if I could write my own! I just need someone to illustrate it because your girl here does NOT do art of any kind.

Seven // Travel to France

This is the one place I have wanted to visit for years. I have taken French, bought books about France, and have dreamed of Paris.  I will need to save lot's of monies but it is going to happen.

Well there you have some of my long term goals. Hey future Juliana, I know you haven't accomplished all of these yet so get on with it girl, you can make these happen!

  2. These are some fabulous goals!! Love all of them!
