I’m not used to getting what I want…and I don’t think it’s a matter of “receiving” things…I think it’s a matter of figuring out what it takes to make those things happen for myself.
Whether selfish, thoughtful, or whatever, there are things I want in life (in an absolutely random order):
I want to go back to school.
I want to have more time with my boys.
I want to eat at nice restaurants.
I want to dance.
I want to shop – for clothes, jewelry, shoes, whatever.
I want to be surrounded by family.
I want a relationship that is a partnership.
I want to travel.
I want my boys to understand you don’t always get what you want in life.
I want to give my boys the world.
I want to be healthy.
I want to lose weight.
I want to look hot.
I want a haircut.
I want to go on a foodie roadtrip – Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives style.
I want to walk on the beach…alone, with someone else, either way.
I want to run again.
I want to learn how to want – you have no idea how long it took to make the list so far.
I want good health for myself and everyone I care about.
I want to laugh a big belly laugh…laugh until it hurts.
I want to fall asleep in someone’s arms.
I want to know I’m not alone in this life.
I want a cupcake…a good cupcake.
I’m nothing if not both deep in my head and goofy as hell. I’m not unique in my wants…and if I took more time, I could come up with more. Now I just have to figure out how to make it all happen.
