Day 18 – 30 Days of ME!

Hello Readers!

I feel like a broken record as I apologize once again for a late post.  It is once again after midnight.  I guess perhaps that’s when I work best. I don’t know.  And, yes once again I was doing school work as well.  This is my final week of this class.  I have to do that role play assignment yet. I’m so nervous about it.  I need to get over the nerves though if I really want to be a licensed practitioner some day.  Is that really what I want to do?  My current professor did a post on what it takes to be a professional counselor and I about fainted. I knew I needed at least a Masters Degree, but oh my goodness! I’m going to be retirement age by the time I’m done with all that’s required as far as testing and working hours.  Lord have mercy!

Okay, today’s topic is “Plans/dreams/goals you have.”  Oh mylanta!

Well let’s see…I guess to start with, my plan is to find a job and plug away at getting the bills paid and eventually caught up.  I made a list of everything I owe, including medical bills (not including student loans) and I’m over $6700 in debt!!  Sucks to be me right now. lol .  I know it could be worse, but when you have no income, it’s a bit overwhelming.  My dream is to eventually get re-married and do more traveling. Or maybe travel and then re-marry. However it works out, I’d like to do both.

My goals are to continue to lose weight and be fit and healthy.  My ultimate goal is to live past the ages my parents did. My mom was 56 and my dad was 61. Of course, ultimately I can’t control that I suppose. But I can do my damndest to make sure I’m the healthiest I can be.  I only have one body and one life.  I’ll be damned if my death certificate is going to say anything related to obesity!! My mom passed away due to complications of morbid obesity.  That won’t be me!  My dad died of cancer so there was nothing he could have done; although maybe if he never would have smoked, perhaps things would’ve been different (he had lung cancer), but who’s to say?  Ultimately, God decides when it’s our time to go.  At least that’s what I believe.  But if I can help it all, I want to get rid of this weight and get as healthy as I can.

I guess my plans, dreams and goals are pretty simple for the most part.  I just pray that something comes about and I can start paying on the bills.  I do want to thank my church family for helping me out.  I am so very appreciative! God bless you all!

Wherever you are in this beautiful world, I wish you peace, love and happiness.

❤ Dottie
