*a more healthful lifestyle
*appreciate nature and spending more time in it
*talk less and listen more
*feed my brain and my soul with good books, music, conversation
*be a more patient mother, wife and friend
*find ways to use & develop my personal talents
*show compassion and do service for my fellow man
*learn a foreign language
*master pasta making by hand
*build my self esteem
*increase my value with classsearch.com...be an asset
*go on dates with my boys individually...let them know they are important to me
*keep my journal religiously
*smile and make friends
*increase our organic garden and preserve as much as possible from it

  1. A great list. By the way, I loved Mornings on Horseback. McCullough is one of my favorite historians. You might like his books about Lyndon Johnson, if you haven't read them.
