What do you want for the rest of your life?

I want to be present wherever I am. Not checked out. Not shut down. Not drifting by.

I want to feel the feelings that surface through the day. I want to know what I’m feeling. I want to feel fully.

I want to have enough energy to do the things that help me be present: enough to exercise, enough to complete tasks, enough to be creative, enough to feed myself–nutritionally, spiritually and emotionally.

I want to stay connected to my daughters–not interfering and not staying too detached.

I want to have fun with my grandchildren, I want to be present every moment I’m with them. I want them to know me and want to be with me.

I want to remember gratitude.

I want to be healthy enough to be present to other people, to be able to listen to them. Listening, really listening, is a gift I can give.

I want to remember that God is always present, that I am never alone.

  1. I love this. I would add for myself: “I will do whatever it takes to accomplish this. I will stay physically active, I will make good eating decisions, I will put down my phone.” Thank you for reminding me that I don’t want life to just happen. I have to decide what I want from life.

    • I would like to do more of what it takes to accomplish all this. Motivation to exercise is a continuing challenge.
