Do More Than Just Exist

“What’s on your mind?” I gotta tell you,  I have a lot. I think mostly about work and how I can generate extra income. You might say that’s it’s a good thing, but my colleagues and family would say “do you ever stop?”. We’ll, at the rate the team’s growth is at now, I’d say “no, I don’t, and I won’t”. I don’t have plans of stopping just yet. Not in the nearest future, anyway. In fact, it gives me a lot of reasons to go on, as long as I still can. My mom started teaching when she was 20, and she retired in her early 60s.

I’d like to think that I can do the same and I want to do it, not just for the family, but for myself, too. Before I got into this job, I wasn’t really making something out of the ordinary. I was a customer service associate and that’s just it. It wasn’t something I’d want to be doing for a long time because I know, I can still do more. Now, the huge question is-what else can I do? I have a few ideas but if I consider how much time and work I’d have to invest in it, it’s going to take a long while.

It always seems impossible until it’s done.

The thing is, I don’t want time to hinder me from doing more. It’s such an ambitious thought, but I’m a grown-@ss woman who has ambitions. There are a lot of sacrifices that come with it, but if I won’t do anything about it now, when do I start? A few years from now, I’d be 40. I don’t want to come to a point that I’d only stop dreaming of doing more when I’m already hunched-over from old age. So unfabulous. Lol. But for me to get to that stage, I have to set goals. I know I haven’t really made something related to goal-setting and I think it’s long overdue.
I kind of made a mental list of those goals. Right now, I’d like to keep it that way–a virtual list that only I know about. I’ve got to see this through and I don’t want anybody to jinx it. Haha. Kidding aside, I’d want to be sure that I’m all set to be on a much bigger journey. The more important question now is “What am I going to do about it?”. Well, it’s up to me to decide what I’m going to do and how I’m going to do it. But get this–I can, and I will, no matter what.
