If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes.
– Andrew Carnegie
I have lofty goals for myself- be a great wife, mother, teacher, and writer. My passions for travel and painting also occupy my thoughts, invigorate me, and lead me to dream. When I’m doing these things, I am happy.
What goals are you setting for happiness? What focuses your energy and creates your dreams?

What a great quote! I have two goals which which motivate and energize me: to obtain a MA in English & History, and to pursue my passion for writing. These pursuits have always been a dream of mine, and they just intensify as time goes on!
Making time for writing every day. And accepting that writing time doesn't have to be this formal planned out time. I plan to get it in when I can everyday.
Great quote! Recently, too much of my attention has been focused on the page. At times, writing feels like a chore. Travel inspires me, but I haven't had an opportunity to do much the last couple of years because we keep moving. This year I've made plans for extended stays in New Mexico, New England, and Italy. I'm already feeling energized.
Wonderful quote. I have to say writing fiction does that for me. 😀
My biggest goal right now is to live in the moment and find the joys in where I am right now.
Writing truly makes me happy. School gets in the way of that (and is a huge part of why I resent it!) so it gets hard but when I have time to write…. I am never happier than in those moments.
Love the quote!
Like you, I want to be a great wife, mother, and writer. I hope to always enjoy the writing journey, no matter how long it takes to move to the next level.
