Anything and everything can be a goal. Aiming to exercise daily, choosing to vacuum twice a week or deciding to take a course to further your skills and education are each goals. It is good to have goals for life. To love, learn and grow should be something that we all want in life 🙂
When you are loved, you feel safe, happy and as if you can achieve anything. Love is needed to feel motivated. It does not have to be from the actions of another person for yourself to feel loved. You can show yourself love. Self-love is to treat yourself with kindness, care and consideration. Giving yourself compliments, rewards for your hard work and checking in with your feelings from time to time are great. Your health and wellbeing is important ❤
You have to consider what is best for you, which can mean that there may be times where other people who you care about need to be less of a priority than yourself. Putting yourself first and having your alone time to focus on your passions can be helpful for those close to you too because when you take care of yourself, you will be able to do the same for others 😀
As to why no person can truly love another being until they love themselves. Think about it, if you do not have self-love, you can be unkind to yourself. So since you can say hurtful things to yourself, it means you can do the same to others. When we are kind to others, it is a reflection of how we treat ourselves. The same goes for, if we are awful to someone, that is a reflection of how we treat ourselves.
Having goals for life will make you a happier person. When we achieve one goal it feels fulfilling and gives us a sense of purpose. We then have the motivation to tackle the next goal, then another one and so on. Just like love, happiness comes from taking action. Scheduling time for your goals is a must. Having allocated times can put your mind at ease, knowing that you can obtain your goals as long as you stick to your schedule 😀
Surely, you have noticed how amazing you feel when you have completed a goal. No matter how long it takes, it feels incredible coming out on top. Looking back once you have achieved a goal you can see how far you have come with the progress. All of the obstacles that you have overcome are something that you can be proud of 🙂
We grow by learning. It is good to expand on your dreams every time you have achieved a goal. Completing one main goal and not learning anything new is something that we are best to avoid. There are many options to learn and gain knowledge. You will not learn everything needed for life at university. You can read books, take workshops and search online to further your knowledge. Continuous education is something that we need to choose for life, so that we can grow into the best version of ourselves.
