I had planned on putting this up a few weeks ago...but kept coming across other blogs with a similar idea so I put it off....
This was written almost 7 years ago's not a new thing at all

So here it is....THE LIST!

I wrote this after ending an abusive relationship (years before meeting my now Husband
I'm slowly ticking things off and when I get to the end, I will write a new one and start again!!!
What's on your list of things you want to do before you die???
Do you have a bucket list? 
Care to share?


The list.

What I want in a partner.
*Someone who will be themselves
*Respect me and my opinions even if they don’t share the same
*Not be closed minded
*Love me for who I am and not expect me to change (too much)
*Have direction in their own lives
*Love me for my mind but love my body as well
*Be accepting of my appearance the way it is
*Compliment often but constructive criticism given if needed (in a thoughtful way)
*Be secure in themselves and our relationship
*No violence towards me or anyone/thing important to me
*Affectionate (the smallest actions can sometimes mean the most)
(all done in 2007...Mr President)

I do want to get married have a family and settle down. That doesn’t mean I want to ever be boring. I want to have fun for the entirety of my life, regardless of the stage I’m in. I would want a life for my children similar to my own upbringing. I was always told I have anything in life that I wanted as long as I worked hard and put my mind to it and I would want my own children instilled with the same self belief.
