# 3 - The big goals question - not sure?

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

3. What is your big picture, long-term goal? Why is this goal the one you work towards?

To answer this honestly, I have to say simply that I am not sure. Big pic, long term goal ? wow. Well:

We as a household are moving into that season of young adult children. We range from the youngest in 11th to a Fr. and Soph in college and one home from college on her way (hopefully) to Medical School. So life is moving fast - we have more time on our hands, but the challenges are different and perhaps the financial stress is always there. One thing - I wouldn't consider us wealthy. The Government does and all financial aid packages do - so its after tax dollars paying for college....thank the lord we have smart kids and they have some Merit $$ and 1 at the Naval Academy (which is by no means totally free).

I digress - but it is the point really. I focus so much on getting through the phase, that I don't have a long term perspective.

Yes we as a couple hope to travel and sail and hike and canoe and play golf - can't do all of that if you are too heavy or out of shape.

So for now I'll term my big picture goal to be: TO BE PRESENT AND OF ABLE BODY.

    Being present and of able body is a big deal. If you don't have good health, you can't be present for anyone, including yourself. So focus on that for now. It is where you should be for your family and for you.
