Living Life

I have always tried to live by my motto "No shoulda, Coulda or Woulda". I don't want to look back on life and say I should of done this, I wish I could have done that, or would have done this, But...


So I started a list of things that I don't want to regret...

Show my son what a happy, healthy marriage looks like. (hopefully I am on my way)

Spend quality time with the ones I love. Who wants to look back on life and say, "boy sure am glad I worked 80 hours a week.."

I was a nurse in my other live and I really would like to join a traveling nurse program and try and give back.

I love to travel and want to see as much of the world as I can.

Volunteer more of my time.

More exercise and eating healthier. I need to make it a lifestyle change, and not just when I gain weight or feel like crap.

Take dance lessons with MyGeek. I love to dance, he can't dance. I want to learn ballroom.

Simplify my life and be happy...

I'm fond of saying "No one ever laid on their death bed wishing they'd spent more time at work."

Same difference. But it took me nearly a lifetime to figure THAT out...

My cowboy/nerd said he would love to take ballroom dance lessons with me, but there is no place near us that does lessons :( The good news is that he does dance, and we do scoot-a-boot now and then.
