Who do I want to be

Next week, I have the whole week off for Thanksgiving. As per normal for Rachael, I started making a list of things I'd like to get done. It always frustrates me that I never quite seem to finish my lists, or that my mind and heart wander off and I do all sorts of other things that are not on my list at all.

In an effort to curb this tendency, I started a new statement about "The Woman I Want To Be...." I figured that if you know where you want to go, you can plan your moves to actually get there. This also is a response to the statement that "self-discipline is remembering what you really want." Its hard to remember something you've never known, so I started thinking about it.

I came up with some pretty nice, general statements, which sum up my desires fairly well. Here they are:
1. a woman who can have people over on a regular basis, someone who others seek out for help and comfort. A woman who has an open door policy.
2. a woman who, not every day, but more often than not produces/has around some yummy goody for family and visitors (cinnamon rolls, scones, etc).
3. a woman who's house stays picked up and clean (see #1), no hot spots, no nasty dirty bits. A woman who keeps up with taking care of things. Her house is lived in, but still comfortable.

Then, this morning, this thought came to my mind: I want to create beautiful things, with food, drawings, words, crafty sorts of things (sewing, x-stitch). I want to DO this, but is this a characteristic of who I am. Who knows, I think a great deal more thought is required before figuring that out.

So, I think I know some of where I want to go, and hopefully my Thanksgiving week To-Do list will support those things. At least now I'm not blindly doing my list without thinking about its purposes.

Though, as I ponder this topic, there are a number of other characteristics that I desire that are not on that list. I might have to expand the list. Maybe that should go on my Thanksgiving week list, also.

    I am going to be 18 in 26 days and I want to become a millionaire quickly by trading either stocks or forex. I want to know in your opinion which of them would make the best vehicle to trade to make the easiest, quickest path to wealth? Also, when I say easy, I don't mean that it would be easy to do, but easy in terms of currencies and stocks to choose from and the least complicated to research out of the two. Good, reasonable answers would be much appreciated. Thanks!
