Having a goal, whether you achieve it or not, is really important. Not long ago, I said I wanted to be a mermaid. Sounds like I've gone nuts (only half true, I'm already certified team crazy) But one of the things I want to do in order to achieve my goal, is to learn to free dive. Something that appeals to me because I tried scuba diving years ago but found it far too claustrophobic with all the gear on. Of course I have to be physically and mentally healthy before I can get there. But this does look awesome.
What are your goals? What else will your goals help you achieve? Big or small, they are important.
