I think the things you want to be, you already are!
I have a life list written down- I put things on there no matter how lofty they seem. Mainly, I want to just live a life full of creativity & love...
Oh, and go to Alaska, hike the PCT, & have my own home & studio.... meet my soulmate, take 6 months off to backpack the western states... oh, shoot , I could go on & on! Life lists are good- gives us something to work towards!

Annie said...

I agree with Pam, I'm wishing for all this for you too. Your lists made me smile, isn't life something?

To be: content.
To do: everything I attempt.
To have: what I need when I need it.
To be grateful for: imagination, husband and children, time.

I don't want to feel limits. LOL I know I'll blunder around making a mess but surely I'll learn something in the process.
