Thoughts By Natalie

a lofty, beautiful pursuit.

I saw this on Pinterest and felt a renewed inspiration to pursue these goals with intention and vigor. They are lofty, indeed. But, they are also worthy of the pursuit. The way I see it, we can either let life pass us by, or we can live each day with the intention to do something great.

While the goal of “doing something great” sounds daunting, it’s important (especially for those of us who are prone to performance-based worth) to remember that small things can be great things: calling a friend, sending someone a kind note, buying coffee for a stranger behind us in line.

This is what these goals look like to me:

  • Live beautifully. Demonstrating kindness, generosity, selflessness, tactful honesty, love, and a joyful heart, regardless of circumstances.
  • Dream passionately. Daring to dream the grand and impossible, and pursuing even the wildest of dreams because it feels so wrong to let them slip away.
  • Love completely. Forgiving those who don’t deserve it, respecting those who are different than we are, and sacrificing time and resources so that others can life fuller, more beautiful lives.

What do these beautiful goals look like to you? In what ways do you pursue them in your own life?
