What is important to you in your life?

I am asking everyone far and wide! What do you want out of your life? How do you plan on getting there? What makes you tick? What are you passionate about?

These are very hard questions to ask but I would love to get to know you all much better so I ask, What is important to you? What do you value and where will that take you?

I will do a full post about your answers and my own tomorrow.


  1. Ahhhh...... I see..... :)

    1. I want a healthy balance of tranquility and adventure out of my life.
    2. By puting one foot in front of the other. Friends that love and support me and that allow me to return the favor.
    3. Change. Challenge makes me tick.
    4. I'm madly passionate about learning. Reading. As long as I always feel like I'm learning something, I'm usually pretty damn happy.
    5. Building lasting, life long, quality friendships is really important to me.
    6. I value honesty, openness in others and myself, health/fitness, education, friends, etc. I have no idea where it will take me yet. I do feel the seeds of change sprouting somewhere deep inside me though. Something is coming, I just don't know what.

    Awesome questions. I love it! :)

  2. i just want happiness! i don't need material things, or all the money in the world - just happiness... and right now, i'm not so happy :(

    anyways, stopping by to welcome you to group two for the LHA challenge!! i'm so pumped!! we're gonna kick some BOOTY!! :)

  3. God, family, and fun... Thanks for asking! looking forward to tomorrow's post!

    Glad I'm on a team with you for LHASummer!

  4. Look, I stopped worrying about what I want 8 years ago, when my son was born. It's not just about MY life any more, it's my family's life too now.

    With that said, I have come to realise, more and more especially lately, that I have to do what is best for me, which helps me to feel my best, which helps me act my best, which helps my family thrive more and they get more out of life. It's like the saying goes "If mamma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." It's true. So what I want is to know ME better. And funny enough, the more I get to know God, the more (and deeper) truth I find out about myself. It's an incredible journey, though it isn't always pretty.

    Long term, I want to grow, and help others grow too. That is all I ask. I am a kind of "go wherever the wind blows" kind of person. If I ever stop learning, that'll be the day that I die. If I ever stop appreciating life, that's it. All in all, I'm pretty happy as it is. Which is funny cuz my life isn't easy. I'm pretty stressed most days actually... but I appreciate the precious little moments, which makes the stressed out moments worth it.

    Actually, reading back, I'm not so different from Salina Lyn.

    Great job on the maintaining Chupsie. I believe in you. Forget plateau, you can do this!!!

  5. Out of my life I want to help others. I am currently pursuing a degree in psychology but I honestly do not know exactly what I am going to end up doing in the end once I have graduated.

    I just know that I love to help people and I would like to be a motivation for others as well.

    I love my family and they really are the most important thing in my life. I do not have any children yet myself, but have tons of nephews, a niece, and a step-son. I am trying to be a good role model and hope that I can help form their young minds and make them better people than what has come before them.

    I too absolutely love to read. I am constantly reading or looking things up. Learning is what keeps me going and I will never give that up.

    I am very passionate about several things. Right now of course I am into health/fitness, nutrition and weight loss. I am also very interested in all things in the medical field in general. I also love true crime and forensics.

    If I could do anything in life it would be someone who volunteers all the time. I would love to travel to other countries and help the poor and suffering. But of course in real life I have to work and pay the bills but if I ever struck it rich that is what I would do.

    I also have a dream of some day running a marathon. I am set to run in my first 5K this August. Now I am going to have to do intervals of running/walking but I am going to complete it!

    I also want to be more adventurous. I guess I just want to get more of a life. I can see myself hiking and climbing mountains, biking in a race, kayaking, going white water rafting, going horse back riding, riding a motorcycle and many many other grand adventures. I want to live life to its fullest and not look back and wish I had done more. I need to start living more for today.
