My Christmas List

What I really want for Christmas this year (what money can't buy):

1. A magic eraser to shed twenty pounds from this delicate five foot tall frame.

2. A father who treats me with respect, kindness, and understanding.

3. Upward mobility in my career.

4. A boyfriend who loves me unconditionally and who never hurts me.

5. More friends to hang out with because being lonely sucks.

6. A Christmas filled with peace and love, rather than bitterness and stress.

7. More time in the day, more days in the week to do everything I need to do.

8. To have more adventures, instead of fearing the consequences.

9. Good health for the rest of my life.

10. Happiness


What is on your Christmas list?


Oh, and with my help, my editor recently became addicted to this Lady Gaga Christmas song. I think that's awesome.



Enjoy!

fabulous list sweetheart x

Leah said...

This is a very real list... they are indeed priceless. The first one made me laugh but the rest made me ponder.

My Christmas list that money can't buy? I always have this wish every Christmas and the whole year round... that my boys will be able to cope with the stress of daily life and they be granted their dreams.

My wish is selfless... it is just for my kids.

Leah said...

Jen, I wish that you'll get all the items on your list (I sincerely do). In case you get the first one too, can you share it with me?

Big hugs and I wish for your happiness.

Happy weekend! :)

A little Princess said...

A perfectly sensible wish list. You're an amazing person with a spirit that's full of life, print the list off and pop it in a little frame for the year ahead. Once you put pen to paper, it's like Father Christmas really does kick into action, you'll achieve every single dream!! Email me your postal address at.... patricia_snook1894@yahoo.com

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I am right there with you on the magical eraser. I hope that the holidays treat you well!

Cafe Fashionista said...

Jennifer!! You so deserve everything you requested on this list! Love you loads!!

I just want to finish up my BA and move on to bigger and better things in my education and career - that is my true Christmas wish. Though I'm labeling it as a birthday wish as well, seeing as how I officially blow out the candles on Monday!!

Ohmigosh Lady Gaga has a Christmas song - I had no idea! I can actually picture you and your editor rocking out to this track as you're working on deadline!! :)

Dina's Days said...

You're so honest all the time, and I think that's so great. I too, want to shed the lbs I put on over the past few months. Perhaps we can do it together via blogspot?

:)

Happy holidays beautiful!

Some Girl said...

I want to be happy, stable, and ok with myself.

P.S. I'm glad you liked my last post. I was reluctant to put it up at first since I've been feeling awful about my writing lately.

Kristin said...

I hope you get everything you wish for this year...especially from your loved ones!

Tom Bailey said...

One of the things I wish for... is people to be willing to be genuine more often like you just shared in your wishes.

Being aware of what you really wish for is a quantum leap towards getting them.

Thanks for sharing
Tom

That's an amazing list. I certainly hope you get everything you ask for and more.

Liv said...

If this list is any indication of your personality then there's a lot of bravery in your honesty and if you keep living your life with an open heart wonderful things will come to you! Except for that magic eraser thingy. We're all waiting for that one! ;-)

Camille said...

What a beautiful list, I hope you one day get everything you ask for :)

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Beautifully honest list honey. Some of the solutions to these can only be found from within, and I think you know what they are. Some can only come from others and are beyond your control. It sucks but sometimes we're forced to either cut those cancerous parts of our life loose or find peace with the fact that they may not ever change, and they are what they are.

All I'm certain of is that Sandy and I DO love you unconditionally and are always around for you. You're one of the sweetest people we've met this year; I can't count the number of times we've almost melted reading your comments.

Hope to talk soon.

OceanDreams said...

I love lady Gaga, she always helps someone get in a great mood, huh? I like your list, very honest and I agree with a lot of it. It is hard being lonely sometimes and it is hard with the boyfriend's can't be perfect...but I guess we are only human. Go and fight your fears love, no matter the circumstances. Oh and I am so with you on the weight stuff, hopefully we both can get our butts in gear, lol!

Pop Champagne said...

lovely post. I'm currently visiting my home town I have less and less friends... It's like people who are calling me to hang out wants something from me whether it's a job referal or something to do with photography. Bah. Good friends are so hard to come by. And as for what I want for Christmas I went out and bought myself a Canon SLR camera YAYYYYYYYYY if you want something you gotta do it yourself right? ;) LOL. Hope your Christmas wishes will all come true *hugs*

Barry said...

Thanks for the comment you just left on my blog Jen. You're so sweet!

I've had so many people tell me I should get published, I'm going to look into it in the new year. As you know my writing leans towards relationships, the romantic and soft erotica. I'm friends with a printer and also know somone who's had her romantic novel published on-line, so you never know...

Thanks as always for your encouragement! Whatever we want we have to make it happen for ourselves, it won't come to us.

zoe aka drinkupthefashion said...

when i saw number 2 on your list my heart almost stopped. i have a father who doesn't respect or understand me. i could go on and on but i'm tired of thinking about it. anyway, i don't know your story but i'd like to have a father who does all of the things a good, sane, god-fearing/loving father should.
