- something that makes someone want to  do something 
 -a force or influence that inspires someone

 I went to see The Nutcracker Ballet at the Academy of Music again this December. I have gone so many times now that it is hard to keep track of exactly how many times I have seen it. This year was a little different because instead of watching and thinking "Wow those ballerinas are beautiful!",  I thought "I want to be a beautiful ballerina!"  I could not let go of that thought despite the inherent delusion in a soon to be 50 year old woman becoming a ballerina. 

So I ordered a ballet dvd.

which I have been using faithfully so that some day soon I can look like a ballerina and wear a tutu!

Sometimes The Angels Are More Serious Than I Am...

I had an accident this past summer. A serious accident that could have left me dead. It didn't though. I stood up and I woke up. I have made so many changes since that fateful day. Changes born of gratitude for being alive and well. Yes, the angels were serious! Thank God!

You Can't Sparkle on a Credit Card

I am just going to say it...I live beyond my means.

 For most of my adult life, I have indulged my wants with easy credit.

 Consequently, I have also payed for many a need with a credit card too.

I have lovely things.

None of my things help me go back to sleep when I wake up in the middle of the night worrying about which bill I have to pay and which one can wait.

I started to make a change this year but old habits die hard.

I am ready.

I am starting with a budget

and help.
