Who do I want to be?

What is my goal in life?

I want to be one who gives everything she has; who isn't afraid to love with her whole heart, and whose smile remains even her heart has been broken.
I want to be one who never gives up; who with every ounce of strength and last drop of hope she is given, she keeps on running the race that has been set before her.
I want to be one whose heart breaks when another's does; whose face brightens when another's does; who loves without desire of anything in return; who weeps with those who weep, and laughs with those who are rejoicing.
I want to be one who makes others feel special because she truly believes they are special. One who comforts, one who encourages, one who blesses, one who doesn't even care about herself in comparison to how much she loves God and others.
I want to be one who laughs at her own mistakes; who weeps when she grieves her Father; and who dances with the King every time He asks her -- every minute of every day.

This is to have succeeded.


  1. What a lovely goal. You will certainly be a blessing to others. I like what you said about loving with your whole heart...it takes courage. :)

  2. You are such a wonderful blessing. :)

  3. Thanks so much, Wanderer and Bekah! These are things that I know I will never be able to do perfectly -- but I pray God will give me grace to become more of the princess He wants me to be. And keeping these as my goals helps me stay on the right track.
