Priorities and such

Remember this list? I actually only care about doing a handful of those (the fact that I have a little more than a year left to complete them may be biasing me a little. But just a very little)

Lists like these are interesting, they really only show where you were at a given time in the journey. They are not accurate predictors of where you'll want to be.

Not for me.

Five things that tell you where I am now on this journey:

1. Spirituality. Get over it (meaning myself) and get closer to God.

2. Passports. Still. Get them!

3. Do hard things. Run, bike, meet new people (these are metaphorical mountains).

4. Vocabulary. Expand it. (find more creative ways to express myself when it comes to dropping things, getting hurt, or losing patience)

5. Be healthy. In other words, eat less crap and work harder at getting fit. Why is this one always a battle?

And as a little bonus, a lesson I've learned:
Good posture, a good bra and a cream sweater will make your bosoms look ampler. Best to balance it out with an ample bottom. Done and done. (note to self: Don't forget to breathe).

Way to get your priorities straight, hun. I think we could all do with a list like that.

And I know I could do with a good bra. Walmart specials just don't cut it at my size.

You look lovely. Truly.

Amen on the good bra! Nothing less than Victoria Secrets for me. Somehow, just slipping it on, makes me feel better

I had a list when I was about 15. I think it had things on it like learning languages and playing the guitar. I think I did a lot of the things on it before I had kids (but I never got past playing Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley very, very slowly). Now I'm waiting to make a new list until my youngest starts school. If then.

You know, if have never made a list like that. I think it's high time I got busy and did it. Maybe that's what my problem is!

Simplify and conquer!

I can testify about the good bra. But I can't do the cream sweater - I guarantee I will spill something right down the front ;)

I love reading your blogs. You're witty, profound and inspirational.

I came by your blog via Tibs…I'm totally not creepy.


I love what you had to say about expanding your vocabulary. I try to do that on a daily basis. I guess as writers, we have a thing for words.

Note to self: get cream sweater.
