    I just read a post talking about how many people say "I'm____, but______." I know I do the same thing.

    For example, "I'm really sedentary, but I want to be fit" and "I'm a mom, but I would like to spend more time with my children." and "I'm on a tight budget, but I would like to have more financial security and be able to give more money to those in need" and "I'm a caregiver to my mom, but I wish I spent more time talking with her and getting her some friends in the area"

    I would love to hear how you fill in these blanks: "I'm_____ , but_____."
