The Perfectly flawed Life List.

A few weeks ago I came across a blog, “How to write your Life List”. So I set-out to begin my list of 100 things. I must say, this is not as easy as I thought it would be. Honestly I began to struggle around #20, Really? This is supposed to be a breeze, putting down on paper the 100 things you must do before, well you know. I had to remind myself that this is more than a list, this is an exercise. For me, its putting it out there, keeping it top of mind, good intentions and positive thinking to fill my life with things that make me happy and fulfilled. I definitely took the guidance of several other blog posts on the subject. They reminded me not to forget about things that are everyday, not just Big ticket items, also to dream big and not worry about the ‘how’ of making these things happen. I will continue to add ‘to do’s’ to my life list as I think of them and hopefully one day, sooner than later, I’ll near 100. For now…
