My significant change will be to sell my house and move closer to my job. The long commute, especially in bad weather, is getting old! I had hoped o do this last year, but prioritized too many other things. I don't regret last year's choices because one was to have. Bariatric Surgery. The other was my daughter's wedding. This will be. The year of the house for me!
I don't know exactly what your question is aimed at. I'm trying to consider what area of my life I would change. . . . . . I wish I had gotten my college degree. . . . but I would not have married at 19, when Wayne got out of the Navy, and had a son at age 20, another son at age 22 and a daughter at age 24. I attended a Technical College and got an accounting degree, was employed by C.P.A. firm for years, then due to law changes was allowed to take the exam and became a Certified Public Accountant, opening my own office in our own little local town.
I'm retired now but I recall the years I worked for Equal Rights for Working Women, and of course that also meant Equal Pay & Etc. I can't regret having my great family. My husband was a "Farmer of the Year" and noted so in the Minneapolis Tribune. My kids all have over 4 year college degrees and are happily employed, my grandchildren mostly did well, have college degrees, no one is looking to slim down but me! Maybe it is old age and retirement settling in!
Christine, this is a great post and question. I'm going to think about this a bit and then post.
You are amazing and approaching your breast cancer diagnosis with such courage and determination. Take care of yourself! I have a friend who worked with a dietician during her treatment and it made a huge difference in her energy while undergoing treatment.
I hope you have a wonderful birthday surrounded by people who love you.

We are almost into the Spring season, a time of renewal and rebirth. Here in Florida, where we're pretty much green all year round, I'm still looking forward to my grass greening up again from the winter browns. And, if you ever wondered where your Robins go in the winter...they have been here, soaking up the sunshine. I'll send 'em back North soon, I promise!
For me, with the spring comes a birthday, March 2nd. This year, it's on a Saturday. Every year at this time, I take stock of what's happened over the last year, and think about what I want to accomplish. I know, most people do that on New Year's, but I figure if I wait until my birthday, I'm more likely to see things clearly, instead of through the post-holiday haze.
This year, I received a very difficult present - I've just been diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 54 - so my next year is going to be much, much different than I could have imagined. However, it's also an opportunity to really reflect, and take steps towards getting healthier, not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well.
Here's the question: If you could pick one area in your life in which you'd really commit to making a significant change, which area would it be, and what would you do?
