What do you want?

The big questions:

Who am I?
What am I doing here?
What do I want?

I am a big believer in goals. I think that unless you know what you want, you don't stand a chance of getting it. But sometimes, deciding what you want is pure hell. That, and determining the cost/benefit analysis.

One of my goals is that when I die there will be ten people left behind who can honestly say that their lives were better because I was here.

There are others, but that's the biggie. Don't need fame. Fortune would be nice. (REALLY nice). There are all kinds of things I'd like to do (I have a 100 things list of things I want to do before I die). But as an all-purpose, what I want to accomplish on the minimum, that's it.

You mentioned that your biggest goal is that "...there will be ten people left behind who can honestly say that their lives were better because I was here...," well that should be easy for you to do, as I can see you have already inspired Yolanda as a writer, which is obviously a wonderful thing. I also know that James moved back by you, which means he knows he can count on you and that is a wonderful thing. I'm sure that Cathy will always value your partnership and friendship, which is a wonderful thing. I'm sure that your close Family and Friends who know how busy you are and that you work two jobs and that you are still able to do things with them and for them will always be appreciated. It's easy to make a difference in someone's life, sometimes just being there or listening or offering advice is the best way, if someone takes your advice or makes a positive change to a happier or better life because of something you said or did for them, and then takes the time to thank you for it, then you'll know you made a difference in someone's life. I try.

Cie and Cathy,
Have a great 4th of July holiday! (they don't have that holiday were Yolanda lives).
