My goal in life is to live it to the fullest. My mother has taught me that the most. She had a heart attack on her 50th birthday and that was probably the turning point in my life. I realized at that moment that I could die or someone I care about could die at anytime. And I will not waste my life or the people I care about.
My mom’s heart attack happened when I was a senior in high school. This changed my whole outlook on high school. High school is known to be cruel to many people. In my high school, everyone talked bad about everyone else. This taught me to be nicer and more accepting of people. Now, if I see someone doing something odd or crazy, I just say to myself, “you do you.” What I mean by this is, that everyone is different and it is their own life, so they can do whatever they please.
My mom’s heart attack also helped me stayed connected to my family while I have been in college. Many people don’t stay in great contact while in college, but I do. I call my mom every day. I have to stay in contact, because if anything happens, I would feel bad. My family and I are really close.
My goal is to live life to the fullest! I couldn’t see myself living any other way. I have a bucket list of things I want to do before I die. Most are like swim with sharks or skydive, but some are even more with that. Like I do not want to hate anyone. I do not want to have bad feelings about the world. I do not want to leave this world without doing something I really want to do or having any regrets.
