Grand Goals

The Grandest Goal of All: I want to be good at something that I love doing, and see people light up and feel grateful that I’m there doing it. That shouldn’t be as elusive as it is seeming to be…

I have decided to make my big, crazy list of goals here!  I have been so focused on health and nutrition, that most of my goals revolve around that.  But one of my newer generic goals is to spend some self-reflection time to come up with other activities and goals that will expand my experiences, and introduce me to new paths of life!
