I want to have fresh flowers in the house more often.
I want to collect more art. Things I love just because I love them.
I want to spend more time in the kitchen cooking with my husband. Music and candles and time, the only things allowed to join us.
I want to find a nail color for Fall that makes me feel every bit of the magical season.
I want to express how much I love Pandora: a whole, whole lot.
I want to believe the truth about who I am and forget all the lies I so readily believe.
I want to be a better wife.
I want to be present. In this year. In this month. In this day. In this hour.
I want to go dancing. And wear a flouncy dress.
I want to buy some acrylic paint and dare myself to try.
I want to be a better listener, really hear what someone is saying, not just the words.
I want to drink more water. Okay, I really don't. I want to want to.
I want to be a more thoughtful friend.
I want to spend our 5th anniversary in Boston.
I want to give myself grace for past failures and confidence to try and try again.
I want to be real. In life. In this space.
I want to dream big and look fear straight in the ugly face and say, You can't get me.
I want you to tell me what you want. Even if it is just one thing.
Go ahead. I dare you.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. Mae West
