A few days back I shared an image on my Instagram and Facebook page, this image and a few recent incidents from my life got me thinking of my life goals. I wouldn’t be entirely honest if I said that I have set life goals or even if I said that I didn’t have any life goals.
I do have goals, but materialistic ones like buying a house, saving up for my son’s college, moving up the career ladder and retiring with a comfortable balance in my bank account. Even though materialistic goals are important for us to live, come to think of it, is that all that matters? What about happiness? What about that inner satisfaction of having done all that you have always wanted to?
That thought is what prompted me to look at my goals from a different perspective and write down this list of my Top 10 Life Goals, the kind of goals aimed at happiness!

Perfect Mother! Be a real, happy and reliable mother to my son!
