Life List

She's my best friend in the whole wide world...
It has been said that...
"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words"

That's Laura.
I don't know if everyone is so blessed to have such an amazing person in their life... but I wouldn't change a thing.
She knows me, and she believes in my dreams.
I love her...a lot.

For Christmas this year Laura gave me a book called "Dream It. List It. Do It!" I could not have received a better gift. Here's how it works...
There are 43 sections each with a goal... For example, the first 3 sections are titled.. "Understand Myself" "Learn New Things" and "Be More Adventurous" etc.. Within each of these sections are numerous "To Do Lists" that will help you accomplish the overall goal.
Pretty cool right?
According to the introduction in this book, One of the ways to achieve the items on a To Do List, is to document the journey. Another important tool is to give yourself a time limit.
In light of the new year, and this amazing book. I have decided to work my way through the book :)

To begin. I have chosen the first "to do" item in the first section.
Section: Understand Myself
To Do: Admit when I'm lying to myself
Time Limit: 2 weeks

Here goes :)

  1. Yay! :) I might buy myself a copy of that book too...maybe we can work through it together :-) or start from opposite ends or something. It can be our Julie/Julia type project.

    Love you more than acorns. :-)
