What is your goal?

I recently became employed and my co-worker asked me on my third day of work what my goal was. She didn’t specify what type of goal so I responded with what my goal is in regards to everything I do; “My goal is to be happy” I said. My co-worker just looked at me, no reply leaped from her mouth. The following week she asked me again ‘What is your goal?” I responded the same way I had a week before. “No I mean what is your goal in life” she then specified. I replied “My goal is to be happy” and I added; “I want to make people smile, I want to laugh and I all I want is to be happy every day of my life. I want to be happy my entire life. Do you understand? My goal isn’t to have a certain amount of money or have a particular title. It doesn’t mean I need to have a certain job. It’s just that simple little goal to always be happy”. I looked at her face and I could see she was struggling to comprehend what I was saying. After a few minutes she just looked at me and said “But how could someone be happy all the time, it’s impossible.” I just smiled and nodded my head.
