To Be #UseYourWords March 2016

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are:
fire ~ caught ~ bench ~ babe ~ portrait ~ jug
They were submitted by:  

I don't want to be some old, bitter lady sitting on a bench one day,
looking back on life with regrets.
I don't want to be some middle aged, wannabe, babe acting half my age.
I don't want to be some wistful dreamer, caught in an impossible dream. 
I don't want to waste the fire of potential raging inside of me. 
I don't want to be an artist, that just paints still portraits of an empty jug surrounded by fruit. 
I want to be a happy old lady, full of a zest for life and happy memories.
I want to be a content middle aged lady, who acts my age.
I want to live up to every flame of potential within me.
I want to paint every scene that catches my eye. 
I want to live.
I want to love.
I want to grow.
I want to evolve.
I want to be.
