“‘Yun nga ang problema ko, wala akong goal.” (That’s my problem. I don’t have a goal.)

I remember saying this to my fiancé before. He didn’t get it at first, but after almost an hour of arguments, he was able to tell me what I might have wanted to hear all this time.

I don’t need a specific goal. I just need something to look forward to every single day.

I have been feeling lost for quite a while now. Sometimes I’ll find myself wanting something, but after a few months, I’ll find myself perplexed again. Then, my heart and mind gave up and just agreed that maybe I am just living a goal-less life. And I’m telling you, that feeling sucks. BIG. TIME. When it happens to you, living happily is not really part of your multiple choices.

But having this kind of conversation with someone who thinks differently opened my mind that chose to close itself. “Isulat mo ‘yung mga bagay na gusto mo,” (write down the things you want) he said. And make it a goal. Even if it’s so simple like waking up happy. That’s something to look forward to.

He’s usually the logical one, so I’ll believe him. Try to do so, too, if you’re feeling the same way.

You can do it!
