The List

There’s all sorts of names & labels but the idea is all the same : a list of things we want to accomplish/try/reach within some point of time. 25 before 25. 100 in 100. 30 before 30. The bucket list.

Mine’s simply The List – a list of things I would like to say I did in my lifetime. It’s not set, there is no particular order.  It’s a growing list as I come across new challenges and fun ideas.

Some Inspiration {other lists I’ve discovered}

  • Carrots ‘n’ Cake : Life’s to Do List this is one of my favorite lists – and it made me realize how much I’ve already done 
  • Work Your Closet: 27 Good things a reminder that sometimes the things most accomplished are not for oneself
  • Just a One Girl Revolution: a nicely categorized 101 in 1001 list 
  • Sprinkles & Style : 101 in 1001  – I like the idea of putting $10 into savings for each goal accoplished
