Know What You Want




I found a great article on a blog called Helen Jane. Here's the link:http://helenjane.com/2012/05/23/know-what-you-want/">

I made a list of what I DON'T want. :

THINGS I DON'T WANT IN MY LIFE

IN GENERAL
1. Negative people and/or people telling me I can't do something
2. Frantic activities
3. No margins
4. Being gone from home too much
5. No time for creativity
6. Being overweight
7. Sickness/Weakness
8. Spending too much time on minutia
9. Spreading myself too thin in time and/or relationships
10. Ungratefulness

What do I WANT in my life? The opposite of the above plus some.

I have to say I like this:
"you won’t get what you want unless you know what you want".

Hi Cutie!
I do like lists. I used to make more lists than I do now and I'm not sure why!
Right now I want a weedless garden. I am off to bend, pull, hoe, and water.

I think it's a great idea to make a list of what you want. I'm reading Gretchen Rubin's book The Happiness Project, and it's interesting to really know what you want, what you don't want, what makes you happy, etc. It can be surprising!

Oh I so agree with 1, 2, and 4. I'm slightly 6 but working on it!

Frances, I've been meaning to read The Happiness Project. Maybe I'll add that to my summer reading list. What's one more, right?

Sometimes it's easier to know what we don't what in order to stay away from it... nice blog, just stopping by to say HI!
