BlogTalkers 67 - Goals.

What is your most important goal in life?
Why? (Please elaborate)
How do you propose to get there? (Or how did you accomplish it).
What sort of sacrifices will (or did) you have to make in order to achieve this goal?
Once you’ve accomplished this goal, how will this change your life?

My most important goal in life was more of a desire or dream. It was in fact a miracle, not major to anyone else but it was to me and my family.
My much cherished dream was to become a mum. This became even more of a dream after the hospital obliterated all my hope when they told me I could never get pregnant not even with help. Luckily the hospital turned out to be wrong. I conceived naturally, unknowingly and although I came very close to death when pregnant I came through it and even more importantly so did my son. Healthy if not wealthy or wise!

Sacrifices to accomplish this while pregnant aren't anything I would consider a sacrifice. Admittedly there was annoying niggles like constant peeing and a craving for mayonnaise on everything but no real sacrifice. My health suffered a bit mainly due to the limitations of what medicines etc I could take but no real sacrifices.

Obviously my life changed 100% when I had my son for a start I had to go without sleep and there was no more just popping out at 5 minutes notice. I can say that my life changed for the better in every way but if you were to ask me when he is awake and being a little bugger I might not wax quite so liberally on how lucky I am. lol
