Thirty Days of Truth - Day Five

I've been a little surprised how easily the answers to this exercise have come so far.  With all the soul searching I've been doing lately, this is probably a harder question to answer than the others simply because there is so MUCH I want to do.

Day Five - Something you hope to do in your life.

As most of you guys have figured out I'm definitely a glass half full kinda girl.  Sometimes so much so as to be a bad thing, if that's possible.  People ask all the time what's the purpose of life, what's their own purpose in the world.  Me?  I'm happy just living my life.  My purpose is to just live.  To make the most out of every day and go to bed with no regrets.  Usually that's easy for me to do.  I don't worry about much, I don't let a whole lot get under my skin.  I'm generally laid back enough to make carpets jealous.  

There are however way more things I'd hope to do in my life than you're likely to sit here long enough to read, but I'm going to try and keep it short.  I'm sticking with things that *I* am capable of making happen to limit the list.

1.  I hope to one day be a published author, and wouldn't mind a spot on the bestseller list, but I'd be fine either way.

2.  I hope to one day say that I've accomplished all my adrenaline rushes and lived through them.

3.  I hope to take my Mom on another vacation to Tennessee.

4.  I hope that by the time my life is over, I've been able to say that I've seen all the places I wanted to visit.

5.  I hope that there will be a long list of people who I've had a positive impact on, people who will remember something I've done or said that has made a significant impact on their life and changed something for them for the better.

I think I'll stop right there, that's a pretty significant list when you think about it, so I should probably get cracking.  Until tomorrow......

PS.  I'm still not really back to posting on a regular schedule or visiting my beautiful blog friends as I'd like, the situation with my daughter has gone from bad to worse.  She's staying with the boyfriend despite my begging and pleading.

Don't worry about your daughter Donna, things will surely get fine I promise. And as for your blog today, it reminds me of my bucket list. Hope you get to do all the things you want to. Much love!

Donna, be sure to add me to the list of the people you have made an impact on. Everything happens for a reason I truly believe and all of us found each other here for a reason. You're in my heart and thoughts and I'm still praying each day for your daughter to find her way out of that situation.

Good luck with your daughter. Love the line about carpet getting jealous. You are great. Keep it up and I'll see your picture above the bestsellers at Barnes and Noble.

Kids will rebel. A similar thing happened with my cousin. They might just have to learn the hard way.
