#Goals Ms. Dellisanti 2017

A year from now...

PYSICALLY HEALTHIER - 80 lbs lighter, no more pre-diabetes, physically stronger, no longer using eating as my primary "stress coping" mechanism. I want to achieve this goal above all others so that I can be at peace with myself and enjoy a life of heath and accomplishing other goals.

4 years ago This year

OCEAN - I want to take my dog, Sadie to the ocean. The ocean is my "happy place", the place where I feel the most centered and clear, and experiencing that for the first time with my first dog is an important milestone for me.

MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY HEALTHIER - I want to be a stronger and more positive version of myself in one year. I want to build a "toolbox" of healthy coping strategies and work on being kinder and more loving toward myself. I want to achieve this goal within the year so that I am better equipped to handle life's surprises and stresses without being self-destructive. I deserve the love that I so willingly give to the people around me.

MASTER'S DEGREE - In the next year, I'd like to begin a Master's program at NAU or ASU. I want to achieve this goal not only to increase the amount that I will be able to earn as a teacher, but to prove to myself that I have the chops to complete a degree program and continue as a lifelong learner.

Three years from now...

RECORD ORIGINAL MUSIC - My family has been asking for several years for me to record the songs I've written over the years. In the next five years I'd like to have a professional album recorded of all of my original music to give to my parents and friends.

DREAM CAR - Within the three years, I want to save enough money to buy a car that I get to drive most of the life out of. My dream car is a 1967 Chevy Impala, but I would settle for a car in good condition.

CANADA TRIP - In the next three years I want to go on a "Contiki" sponsored trip to Canada. One of the activities I look forward to the most is riding horses through the mountains. Similar to visiting the beach, I feel at peace and centered while on horseback and among nature.

AUSTRALIA - The most important 3 year goal is to visit my brother in Australia, which is where he will likely go to get his Master's degree. I want to do this not only to see more of the world, but to show my support for him while he's so far away from home.

Five years from now...

TRAVEL - In five years, I want to be in a financial position to be able to travel by myself (without parents' help). I want to visit Italy and Ireland, where my grandparents are from, and there are other places I'd like to adventure to - and visiting those places alone is an aspect of independence that's really important to me.

BEAGLE PUPPY - I have always loved the beagle breed. Within the next five years, I would like to have a beagle that I've had since it was a puppy. I want to train him to howl on command, and I want to take him on trips and be best friends. #cheekybeagle

HOME OF MY OWN - In the next 5 years I want to purchase (on my own or with a partner) and make it completely mine. I want that house to have a big front and back yard, with a little bit of property (like, 1.5-2 acres). I want it to be unique and homely, and a place I can be proud to have people come and visit.

MARRIAGE - I would love to be married within the next five years. I want someone who will challenge me, support and comfort me, accept me for who I am, and share a life we build together.

Ten years from now...

DEBT FREE - In the next ten years, my goal is to have paid off all of my student loans. This is so important to me because I want to go through my life beholden to nobody. Once I'm free of this debt, all of the money I work hard for and earn will be mine to save and spend.

MOTHERHOOD - By the time I'm 37 years old, I want to be a mother. Ideally this would be in a nuclear family with 2 parents, but if I don't find a partner, I would like to have adopted at least one child, if not two.....I want love to be my legacy, and I want that legacy to express itself in my children.

PASSING THE TORCH - In the next ten years, I want to serve in a mentorship role to new teachers. I was seriously blessed with some amazing experienced teachers who took me under their wing when I first started out, and I want to pay that gift forward and help strengthen the education industry.

FINISH & PUBLISH WRITTEN WORK - I've been working on a novel series called "The Diadem" since I was 20. In the next 10 years I want to finish at least the first two books in the series, and see at least the first book published. This will feel like such a huge accomplishment to me, as creative writing has always been a passion of mine.

A goal without a plan is just a wish....set a goal, plan it out, make a deadline, and DO IT.
