If I Could

If you could be or do anything in this world what would you choose?

Are you happy with yourself and your achievements?

If I could change anything it would be my weight. I would love to lose some of that because it is healthier to be in good shape. Too many folks are dying too young and I want to be the best I could be health wise. I've seen too many folks die this year from heart attacks. Some as young as 38 years old, they were a little overweight but no other real problems per their families. Losing weight has always been difficult for me because I am an emotionally eater. I go long periods without eating and then when I get stressed the damage is done. Diets haven't worked for me. I am trying to find something that will work that will suit me.

If I could change my occupation; I wouldn't. I would still be doing what I am doing and that is working in the social service arena. This is an occupation where you never get bored. There are so many positions you can work in with children, teens, families and the elderly. It is perfect for me. I used to want to sing professionally and sometimes I still do but I know that time has passed and I'm okay with that. I wouldn't want to do all that touring and traveling.

Things I really enjoy doing are reading and writing. I don't even remember an age where this wasn't important to me. I have been reading books for enjoyment since I was six years old.

A person who I miss dearly is a previous boss I had. She was only 38 years old. She died of a blood clot in the brain three years ago. I miss her dearly. She was very talented, smart, and served as the executive director of three major organizations before the age of 35. She was well loved and had the most pleasing personality..RIP..Mary Hayes. You are Missed....

I feel ya, Rose.

If I could change anything, it would be my anxiety about failure and trying new things.

I know how it is to lose a friend. My bestfriend died over 8 years ago at age 26. It was sudden and unexpected. Come to find out she knew she was sick but would not tell anyone.

I love what I do too and I think weight is something that most women would want to change. Even if they are fit you hear them say, "maybe 5 more pounds."

I also know what it is like to lose a best friend Rose. My best friend died nearly 12 years ago in a car crash. She was travelling with her baby in the back but they managed to get him out. Unfortunately they could not save her :(.

If I could change anything I think I would change my weight and have a decent knee again :).

Beautifully rendered miss Rose. If I could change anything about me, I would change my activities and work them down to a low roar. I have so many things that I get into daily.

If I'm not drawing, I'm designing on my computer, if I'm not doing that, I'm creating and building computers, if it's not that.. well, you get the point.

I need to do just a little bit less at a time. Not cut everything out altogether, but reign it in a bit and let myself lounge around lazylike.

I've lost too many friends to illnesses and the like at young ages.

The thing that I desire to be the most in this world is a good wife and mother.

So sad about your boss Mary...we're losing too many young ones! I lost my best friend who was like a sister to me when we hit 30.

I'm on my way to doing what I've always wanted -- becoming a full-time author!

Tapi setelah minum obat Penyakit kutil kelamin wanita dari herbal, dalam waktu 2 hari sudah kering.
