My Top 50

This is a pivotal year for me. Iím so excited about the changes in my life and Iím looking forward to what this year holds Ė completing everything on my Top 50 list. This list includes a wide variety of, what I believe to be, achievable goals.

A few weeks ago I asked the question, ďwhat would it take for me to change?Ē I received back wonderful responses, but the bottom line is the change needs to be within me. If Iím not committed, I canít change and I canít rely on others to do it for me. I would hate for a change to be brought about by some catastrophic event.

So my change begins with me believing in myself, knowing that there are people out there who truly care about me but that I have to be the one to make it happen.

It means letting go of stress, letting go of the toxic people in my life. Itís time and I am ready. I WILL do this! Ready, setÖ..

Thanks for the goodie! I ended up doing very well in my classes.. After all that studying and stress, I would have been devastated if I got below an A.. lol. On one final I actually scored a 100! The other was a high 90.. I'm happy. The fun starts again on the 23rd.. I'll be taking Anatomy and Physiology 2 and Statistics.. I haven't had a math class in about 25 years or more.. should be interesting!
Glad to see you back. I hope you enjoyed the holidays :)
