Even though I was a little girl many decades ago, I retain the magic and delight I experienced when the first story sparkled from my imagination to end up as a scrawl on that wide-lined notebook paper. To this day, I savor the expressions from the great (and good) writers of today, whether it's fiction, poetry, plays, non-fiction, journalism and op-eds.  I continuously pick up ideas and phrasings from the masters of our day, and file them away in my brain's internal office's in-box.  That compilation is for the life-long wish I hope to embrace: 

to someday retire with enough in the coffers to fully pursue my writing. 

My never-ending dream requires a change in my career.  All my life, I have been ruled by the reality of needing a paycheck (and benefits) while raising and tending to my family.  I am finally at an age and time in my life when I see the enticing possibility of pursuing my writing dream.  It will take careful financial planning, living on a frugal budget, and dedicating a certain number of hours a day to crafting my words and phrases.  I am self-motivated and ready to develop the daily writing habit.  And I am eager to let the stories loose!

I’d really like to STAY on task, ie:  walk at least 30 min a day!  I’ve hated excercise since grade school! Anything that is a must, I seem to rebel!  Childish really!  Yep, walk, walk, walk!

I'd like to become more mindful of what I do like remembering to breathe deeply to relax and eat only when I'm hungry.  Too often my shoulders are taut from stress and I do too much comfort eating instead of healthier ways to relax.

A habit I would like to break is too much time and money spent watching QVC.

I would love to be more organized. I keep plugging away at it but it's not a natural talent.

I would like to restart doing tai chi "for old people" that my library offered last summer.  It is modified to enhance balance and tailored to older persons.
