I've been asking myself that question as of lately but I'm not sure that I've come closer to the answer. I have a lot of goals, but I think that now my most important goal is happiness and to be able to bring as much joy to others and change for the better as I possibly can. I suppose I would love to leave a legacy. emoticon

You cannot get what you’ve never had unless you’re willing to do what you’ve never done.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.

To become a person who achieves what I was put here to do, in every aspect that it can apply. Hopefully that means for a ridiculously long time!

BShoodle I totally have to agree with you The oldest person I know is 103 She is a neighbor of my parents and was like a 2nd grandmother to me growing up. She is a retired teacher who raised 3 children, ran a bee farm and with her 65 year old daughters help still has 2 hives that she keeps for herself still to this day. along with mending and making scrap quilts which she donates to a homeless shelter. At the age of 99 she decided to move her mailbox to the top of a hill because she was afraid she wasn't getting enough exercise. she is one of the most amazing people I know. I also know that she has been a vegetarian her whole life and has always taken her health seriously and this is why she has lived the life she has.

My Mother is 78 and still living and she still has a passion for life never does she feel depressed about it. Her life is just a simple one but everyday she has something to look forward to. Her schedule is busy doing things she enjoys. I think that is the secret to life. My Grandmother lived till she was 93 and she was the same. Enjoy the simple things. Always have something to look forward to. Keep active. Have plenty of fun. I need to take some of my own advice. Right now.

Two years ago, I decided that my health was my most important goal. If I achieved that goal, then all other goals would be possible. Tim Russert died a couple of weeks ago; as the host of Meet the Press, he had arrived at the pinnacle of his career. He died at the age of 58. I am almost 62 years old and the lesson to me is that what does it matter how successful you get, if you die soon after you achieve your goals?

Becoming the woman that my God wants me to be - To get my life back on track... I know then I will have peace of mind to become a living walking testimony of hope, health and love to inspire change to others. To be so blessed I'll be a blessing (my ultimate goal).

Live your life like it's golden because it is.

Your life is a stage and not everyone in your circle can sit in your front row.

My goal is to lose my desired weight and help make things around my immediate environment happy and pleasant. There are people out there in our world who haven't got it so good this very night. I will just pray for them. That some goodness comes there way. A kindness in some form.

I want to get healthy and stay healthy because I have had illnesses of one type or another since childhood I try not to let them get me down. But would really enjoy not having to deal with pain or sickness on a daily bases. By changing my diet and doing certain exercises I have actually gone several weeks at a time without relapses. Those weeks are blessings to me.

To be overall healthy, get the two thumbs up from the doctor and be able to out run the boogie man!!!

The only thing you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything.
