I've been thinking about (but rather at a loss) articulating my long-term goals. I thought I'd start with just a brain-stormed list of qualities I value - love, gratitude, strength, kindness, loyalty, bravery, confidence, humility, justice, joy, non-judgement, confidence, peace, patience, self control, gentleness, thoughtfulness, selflessness and abiding by one's code of ethics. I think this is a pretty comprehensive list, so maybe I'm ready to list some goals.
1) Have a relationship with my grandchildren (none of whom exist). Take each on a high school graduation trip to the destination of their choosing.
2) Keep myself healthy and vital so that I can continue to care for my 5-year-old nephew and sick Dad with energy, kindness and patience.
3) Reach my weight goal of 146 pounds by April 16, the day of my nephew's wedding.
This isn't done - I still have more thinking and writing to do.....
