The Life List


Quietly on my own I have been working on my life list. THE Life List. My story. My hopes. My dreams. It isn't terribly long yet or far fetched and I think that is OK. I tried to keep most everything tangible and measurable and all are very much in my reach. I have been so inspired from reading other lists on peoples blogs I figured it was time to share mine. I believe we all have a list whether we know it or not. Everyone has those secret dreams that are kept inside pertaining to things we want to do, "someday." When my husband found out I was writing a list he even shared a few of his wishes with me. I think the act of writing out a list is the first step towards living a more fulfilling life. I also think it is important to think of a Life List as a set of hopes and dreams instead of another reason to look for disappointment if they all are not accomplished right away. Do I think I will get to every single one of these before I stop walking on this Earth? Maybe, maybe not. Even if I don't that is OK. I have something to look forward to and something to strive for, one small check mark at a time.

If you need a little nudge getting started with your own list here are a few great links to help:

  2. What a great idea Celina! We all do have a list, more recently it has been called a bucket list :) but we all have them. I think it is a great idea to keep track of what you want for yourself. When you make yourself happy you will spread that out to everyone around you.

  3. Thank you Mindy. I decided to call mine a life list instead of bucket to make it about living instead of well, kicking the bucket. LOL

  4. Love this, Celina! I have had a life list for a long, long time. However, now I'm trying to actually start crossing things off it!

  5. LOVE this idea - I've been thinking about making a life list for forever, have even been collecting ideas for it. You've finally inspired me to get it started AND publish it on my blog - love your idea of holding myself accountable that way.
