I Want to Live!

I want to live. I want to grow. I want to see. I want to know. I want to share what I can give. I want to be. I want to live. --John Denver

I want to go to parties and socialize.

I want to take dance lessons.

I want to go camping with only a backpack.

I want to bake some kind of goody at least once a week.

I want to meet new people and make new friends often.

I want to go snorkeling in sparkling blue waters.

I want to finally learn how to play the guitar that we bought over a year ago.

I want to have at least one good friend that I can turn to with anything.

I want to always be surrounded by love.

I want to go to local musicals and plays on a frequent basis.

I want to start up a baton twirling group again.

I want to make sure I don't miss out on the ever decreasing amount of time that my kids are still kids.

I want to feel contentment at the end of every day.

I want to party like it's 1999.

I want to go on a river rafting/camping trip.

I want to start going to bed earlier and, therefore, wake up feeling refreshed every morning.

I want to make homemade Oreo cookies. :)

I (still) want to have another child.

I want to keep donating blood.

I want to finally go to the dermatologist and get rid of my acne.

I want to run in a race.

I want to let my hair grow down to my waist and then dye it a chocolate brown.

I want to eat chocolate everyday.

I want to live on the beach.

I want to learn how to surf.

I want to visit as many foreign countries as possible before I die.

I want to go on a safari.

I want to be able to fix my weird wandering eye so I don't look like a freak.

I want to go on a whale watching expedition.

I want to go on a shopping spree, with a stylist, on someone else's dime.

I want to write what ever's on my mind without feeling like I have to hold back.

I want to attend ALL of my kids' activities, awards ceremonies, sporting events so I never have to feel guilty again.

I want to lay on a beach for a week, having drinks and food delivered to me. And when I get too hot from baking in the sun, I'll frolic in the waves in my cute polka-dotted bikini.

I want to be the life of the party, just once.

    Roxanne, you are beautiful.

    I agree with Liz :) And I like your list.

    The hair to the waist thing is really hard! I've been trying for a while now but I think this is about as long as it gets :(

    I also like how one kind of chocolate leads to another ;) And they have really good whale watching in Cape Ann, Gloucester, Massachusetts.

    That's a great list! I think you should definitely write whatever you want. I know there are consequences to doing so (as there are for any action) but maybe they can be good ones. :)

    Liz- you're seriously going to make me cry. It's not everyday that someone hears that. :)

    Bearette- I used to have hair that long when I was young, but it seems impossible now. It won't stop me from trying though. :) I see you picked up on the chocolate thing. I tried not to have segues, but that one could not be avoided. ;)

    Suzy- Thanks for the encouragement. I'll have to listen to your advice. :)

    I'll bet you are the life of the party and just don't know it.

    I have one of those eyes. It was fixed when I was a kid but still wanders out when I squint in the sun.
