Life List

I am a list maker. There is a list for everything. To do list, to make list, to call list, to see list, Christmas list, birthday list, chores list, grocery list, I could even write a list for all the different profanities you can throw about in a day - if I really wanted to but I am down to my last roll of toilet paper. Usually things that I don't really like doing (eg: paying the bills or cleaning the toilet) get crossed off and the things I like to do (sewing, reading) get a tick. Once a task from the list is completed, whether ticked or crossed I feel a little swell of accomplishment.

With my renewed enthusiasm sparked by the new years eve fireworks I have decided I am going to make a list of things I would like to accomplish in my life. My Life List. If I can get a swell of accomplishment by crossing off "fold washing", then I want a Tsunami from ticking tasks on My Life List.

This list will be ever changing. I know that things I may want to do now will not hold as much ground as the things I will want to do in the future, the plan is to get them done before I reconsider.

I invite everyone to write your own life list, there are never enough things to achieve in one lifetime and never enough lifetime to achieve enough things. Let me know if you do, I might even steal some of your ideas ;)

My Life List

  • read one hundred books every year.
  • write a book.
  • illustrate a children's book.
  • build a house.
  • have a honeymoon.
  • volunteer for a charity.
  • Learn another language.
  • Study something.
  • Learn basic car mechanics.
  • Become familiar with world geography.
  • Get my dream tattoo

What a fabulous life list! I hope we see your first book in print sometime in the near future.

Actually, maybe you could combine a few goals with an illustrated children's guide to car repairs (en francais) with all proceeds to the Red Cross?

Enough of silliness .... may life take you in all the right directions to achieve your wonderful goals!
