Simple Goals

A p r o n h e a d -- Lilly

I had simple goals as a child:

I only wanted to be famous and change the world.

Now,

I realize with any and all accomplishments, my real goal should have been to change myself—

or at least place my life in a position to be changed.

What good is a song,

a poem,

a story,

a photograph, even if it gets recognition,

if the singer,

the poet,

the writer,

the photographer

wears the same old shabby faith of yesterday?

I have simple goals as an adult:

I only want to be changed into the child God wants me to be.

One Response to Simple Goals

    Simple goals? Well I think you accomplished them. Perhaps minus the change the world part.:) I never even had goals. Think I just floated through life. I learned if you don’t have expectations, then you can never be disappointed. We need to have coffee.

I would love to hear from you!
