My goal in life is to do something to make the world better. Currently my biggest hope is that my writing will inspire people to change their lives for the better; other than that I haven't got much of a plan right now how to improve the world.

mine seems to be in the here and now, the future is a little scary for me still, and the past was for the most part good, but now is the best

I don't know if it's hormones with me; I blame my family for most of it.

That's actually a very good place to be, happy with where you are now.

Right now I can't say that I'm completely happy where I am now, so I'm trying every day to move myself closer and closer to where I want to be.

ya I think the world has to want it too. You could do everything in your power and be the "best" person, but unless they want to change, it's pretty tough

Boy, do I know about this! That's why I wrote "The Key," about the frustration that comes with trying to help people who don't want to help themselves.

yeah, I'm not completely satisfied with my life right now, but I don't have much to complain about. I've been blessed. I think the my optimism lies mostly in the short term future.

yeah, and it's hard to know what to do in that situation, like what more can you do sometimes. It often leads to some frustration.

I have a lot to be thankful for right now and in the short term, but my greatest goals are in the long term.
