I want to take my makeup off every night before bed.
I want to always wear matching undergarments
I want to floss my teeth just as often as is recommended.
I want to remember to spray perfume on every day
I want a little garden where I can play with my family and dogs
I want to shop at the farmers market and I even want to bike there.
I want to eat only whole and healthy food
I want to be the kind of partner that always makes her lover feel appreciated, loved, respected and held.
I want to live near the water.
I want to be the kind of mother who makes her children laugh, feel special (but not too special so they don’t become on of those kids), loved, listened to and safe
I want to live a balanced life
I want to never feel an anxious flutter again
I want to remember to turn off the lights when i leave a room and put the cap back on toothpaste
I want pictures everywhere in my home so I am surrounded by memories
I want to practice yoga 5 times a week.
I want breakfast in bed on Sunday mornings while cuddled up with my loved ones.
I want to read the paper every morning with my coffee
I want to jet off on an adventure just because I felt inspired to
I want a home filled with special things from my travels
I want to have a library of old movies
I want to be the kind of friend who honors commitments and takes the time to make the call
I want to wear color often and with a sense of humor
I want to laugh loud and often
I want to live a bold and fearless life
I want to count my blessings and be thankful
