BLOG MEME: 5 Things I Want To Do Before I Get Old

I feel a little bad about not having participated the whole week and realizing it just today...actually just moments ago. But I'm gonna catch up! :)

Now for this week's Blog Meme: 5 THINGS I WANT TO DO BEFORE I GET OLD

1. Establish my own businesses for more employment opportunities
I don't really know what businesses exactly, but I want it to mainly be for more employment for people. Profit, yes...But the fact that it will offer more jobs makes me feel more at peace.


2. Have at least 1 child
I have been wanting to have a child/children of my own.  Honestly, I don't care too much about having a husband at this point, but I want to bear a child that I will raise on my own, teach all that I wish was taught to me when I was younger (not that I'm complaining, I love how my parents have raised me), turn into someone very Godly and become a good citizen of the world :)


3. Be a professional fashion stylist
It was just lately that I've realized the thrill that styling gives me. I did not grow up a fashionista, but creating physical outlook changes (clothing, accessories, make up, etc) in my head with most people that I meet has always thrilled me...and I'm happy that I gave myself a chance to realize this.


4. To be active in outreach programs
I want and have to be an active contributor to society.  Why? Because I have all that I have right now for a reason: to share to others. I have always believed that I was given most of my material wealth to share to those who need it most.  My talents, time, and my heart as well. :)  But you know what, I personally think that everybody else should think this way for a change. I almost can't imagine the kind of positive change that could happen if it should happen! :)


5. Travel!
Definitely travel! Within the country and outside! It's an experience of finding yourself while getting lost... and discovering lives that you never knew existed, what people need, have, and give, and just plain experiencing the vastness of God's creative love ;-) Any "mind opening" experience for me actually is a must.

    1. Hello Taylor. Thanks for the appreciation. Lists are easy to make, but putting them into action I guess is one of the hardest parts. But I definitely do my best, especially now that I'm hearing a lot of support. :)

  11. Hey future Rachel Zoe! haha
    It's nice that young people today are becoming style conscious. Not just to stand in line with other fashionable cities in the world but to just up the general mood and look of people. I find it really refreshing whenever I see someone dress smartly.

    I'm like you I want to have a kid like right now. I'm thinking of the things I'll teach her/him. But in truth it's not really on MY mind to actually do it yet. *lol* just in love with the idea.

    I hope you accomplish all this. It's a good and meaningful list! :)

  15. God has planted dreams in our hearts. Dreams that don't die. Whatever dreams that you have, make them come true! You could list them on any paper, and read them everyday just to be reminded. :)
