I was reading through my pre-divorce goals and dreams and realized how much i have adjusted goals and dreams to meet my current financial situation.

i still want to see the blue staircase in powderham castle. I still want to spend a week in york (again). I have yet to see the bayeux tapestry.

I divide my dreams and goals into BE, DO and HAVE

Be:
at age 65, Licensed chemical and drug abuse counselor (CADAC) then
Master in social work (MSW) then
Licensed professional counselor (LPC)
a good friend
happy - God said so
married to a man who walks with god, emotionally stable, financially stable, in a temple marriage

Do:
work on my appearance. lipstick and neatly bunned long hair chignon make all the difference
sell excess belongings, let past passions go
see powderham castle, devon
week in york
bayeux tapestry
week in mexico city
boston, philadelphia, salem, and revolutionary war sites
serve a mission at 65
resurrect my soap business at 65
decorate / honor holidays the way I used to
restore my garden
BUY back TRS years
paint my ceilings brilliant white
move possessions to sturdy, wide shelves in garage.

Have:
abundant retirement
new car replacement fund
10,000 contingency fund
sofa slipcovers washable
tall ladder
new hoses and sprinklers
axe/hatchet
drill and bits
circular saw
fresh white towels and mats
digital camera
used 18k chunky yellow gold bracelet OR a new 14k bulova yellow gold watch
coach purse
my large crockpot is on its last legs

i have adjusted my expectations that on my current salary, international travel will not be possible.

i recently had "attractive full length mirror" on the list. found it on the side of the road 2 weeks ago. wonder what God will provide next?

    Good luck with your 'be, do and haves'! It is good to have them, I believe that they keep us focussed and in control of our own lives (to a certain extent). After my divorce my whole outlook changed and my goals changed. You are doing great, taking charge of what you want!

    Loved your comment on 'wonder what God will provide next' - made me smile and open my eyes to what he has provided that I might have missed....... to slow down and enjoy the experience.
