Many many Dreams going on right now!

     So I guess you could say that I've been slacking.  I'm pretty good at procrastinating if I do say so myself.  I know I've done a few posts here and there, but they've been pretty much me whining, let's admit it, lol.  So, I figured it was time to finally sit down and write down some of my immediate life goals.

  1. Start a home:  Most obviously, as anyone reading my blog could tell you, I want to have a home.  Of course, we know I already have chosen which home I want.  (Backstory here:here, and here, and here!)  So, in regards to this dream, the latest we have: we signed another addendum saying we agreed to close within 60 days of them(finally) agreeing to the deal.  We do think they are going to agree, but, we are worried the house is going to appraise for less than our offer and then our loan won't go through.  This could go two ways: they tell us they will accept the lower amount since that is all if appraised for OR they tell us they won't accept more and we lose the house.  Hopefully we will know soon...either way...
  2. Be a Happier person: Don't get me wrong, I think I'm pretty happy, but there are some things in my life that need to change.  For one, I worry too much about what other people think.  I'm a people pleaser and sometimes I find myself putting myself, who I am, on the line just to make other people happy.  I also over-explain myself to try to make someone see why I did what I did.  I really need to shrug things off because I let it get to me too much. Also, I think I need to start doing more to make myself happy instead of waiting around for it. 
  3. Get Healthy: I am the first person to tell you I simply can't diet.  I don't think I need to lose a ton of weight, a few pounds for sure and I'd love to tone up a bit.  I think it will help me with goals #2 as well.  I've also had a couple of blood pressure scares in the past couple of years (stress related I think).  With my Dad's history of heart disease and even my mom's history of diabetes, I need to get healthy either way.  
  4. Keep in Better Contact with Friends/Family: I've kinda been slacking a bit with responding to emails and calling friends from home.  I have seriously been in a funk (see #2). I got to see my friends over last weekend for my "sister"- friend's bridal shower and realized just how much I miss them and how wonderful they are.  Even across the miles, I need to get better at calling and responding.  Good friends are too hard to find.  
I'm sure there are more things I want to work on....yea, there definitely are!  ha ha, but for now, this is my list.  A smaller list if easier to work on, and these are some pretty lofty goals!  we'll see how they go, I'd be happy with progress.  Do any of you have goals you are working on (I'm sure you do!)?  How are they going?  Anyone else a people pleaser?

  1. Hey Sweetie! It was so great seeing you when you came up! I agree, good friends are hard to find and I'm so glad that I found you!!! You are definitely a people pleaser, but you are an amazing, wonderful, awesome person that everyone (with any sense) loves and adores. You should not have to work so hard for people who don't have any sense ;). Can't wait to see you when you come back in April and then again when we come down to visit you in the summer!! :)
