Having goals is the one thing that I absolutely believe makes us human. Humans like to want and want and want more than anything. Even if we already have some things that we should be contented about, we still like to want more things, which in turn, can also be called goals.

A bucket list is something of a goal too. It’s a list of activities or maybe even food you want to try before you die. Or kick the bucket. That’s why it’s called that name. In a way, we all have it, because we want things and want to experience a lot of things. It’s a big world out there, after all.

How about those who have difficulty in finding what they want though? Those who have no goals and are left at an impasse in their life. What happens to them if they don’t have anything they want to do with the remainder of their lives? Are they still considered humans for having no goals anymore? For not wanting? Does life end at that point?

Those are big questions. You can have all the jewellery and big houses you want in the world. You can be happy with those and be contented with your life. But you should know it doesn’t stop there. Try to reignite your fire and look for things to want. Get another bucket list.
