I'm working toward having a Kundalini awakening.

When that happens, all else will fall into place.

I notice you have quite a few goals, but haven't said anything about what you've done, or doing to attain them.

I've been going to yoga classes for a few months now, several times a week, including, hatha, kundalini, and meditation.

It's really great.

lol, have faith grasshopper.

i might be severely negative but eh.

oh yeah, i have been training my dogs everyday.

ignore distractions
obey my commands immediately *even if in attack/defend state of mind*
follow me

that is it so far but i have no treats to train them and i dont want to train them to much without a reward, it might damage any progress or damage progress in the future.

Before I turn 50:
I want to make a watercolor quilt out of material I've collected something like this:http://www.suehecker.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/watercolor1.jpg
I want to take this walk from Land's End, Cornwall to John O Groats in Scotland:http://www.longwalks.org.uk/512_omap300px.jpg

After I turn 50:
when my daughter (who is my younger child) finishes school, I'd like to spend a couple of years in Africa teaching and then I'd like to spend the rest of my life living six months in England and six months in the US - either in upstate NY or the mountains of NC and have a house where my kids can visit me, with a big garden (flowers and vegetables) because in another ten years or so, I'll probably be a grandmother Shocked
If my kids don't have kids - maybe I'll do respite foster care or something.

Lose the next/last 40 - 50 lbs.
Keep them off forever.
Help our nephews and their parents pay for college.
Pay off the house by the time I'm 50 (I'll be 47 in 2 months).
Go to Greece.
Go back to Italy, see family
Go back to England.
Go back to Hawaii.
Go back to Mexico, see family.
Go to Sweden, see family.
Run a 5K 10 months out of the year.
Become a published author.
Become a professional blogger or do something else, 'netwise, and actually make a serious living at it.
Get back on TV (possibly related to the previous two goals).
Get another degree, in some Humanities field, possibly History.
Meet as many A2Kers as is humanly possible.

The first one is in reach for this year. On target with the mortgage and college tuition ones. Semi-on target for the 5K one. Doing some writing, and blogging. Travel stuff will likely have to wait until the financial stuff is done or closer to being done. Semi-working on TV but it's more back burner, same with the degree, which is more of a retirement goal.

And meeting A2Kers any chance I get. Smile
