I've never really been very good at thinking about the future and what I want from life. To be honest, I've never really known what I want but this morning I sat down and wrote down my dreams in life. They're actually very simple! It would be cool if you wrote down what you wanted as well!

Here is my list:

- A nice house with a backyard for the kids to play in.
- A minimilist house.
- Regular holidays: holidays to the beach and skiing etc. Doesn't have to be international travel (though I'd love to go to Fiji again soon!)
- Lots of fun, family activites: rock climbing, walks in the bush, swimming, going to the beach, picnics etc.
- Traditions: Fish and chips Sundays for a start.
- Regular dates with DH
- Regular time to be me, doing things I enjoy

For me personally:

- To be fit and healthy and strong
- To have a happy, love and laughter filled life
- To continue to be in love with DH and make him happy
- To be the best mother I can be
- To be happy

I don't think I want to much? It sounds pretty achievable I think! Now to make a plan to get there!!

It's complicated.

good idea.

-I want to learn self compassion, and think about what would be good for me and then do it, instead of sacrifcing myself and then being hurt.

-to keep learning and growing

-finding time for nature and yoga

-(good health, food and shelter)

I want most of all to be happy with where I'm presently at. I have suffered so much for wanting to being doing or having something other that what I have..I wish I had the peace of mind to just enjoy wherever I am and make the best of any circumstance. That's it, that's all.

I forgot to add that I want a three bedroom house so that we can use one of the bedrooms as a study where DH and I can close the door and be alone (though I'm guessing not at the same time!). Oh Lord, the idea of a whole room where there is peace and quiet and calm makes me so excited!

It's complicated.
