101 Things in 1001 days – Update


POSTED IN: Uncategorized

a dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. you must break out of your current comfort zone and become comforatable with the unfamiliar and the unknown. – denis waitley

i was recently inspired by a new friend, karen stott, who had shared her list of 101 things… and i had the exciting joy of helping her cross off  driving over the golden gate bridge from her list… and it got me thinking about my dreams and aspirations… i’ll admit some of these are silly ideas but all of them impact my heart and dreams in some way. there is something incredibly powerful about writing things down and setting out for them. i think sometimes it can be easy to get caught up in the daily chaos of life and forget how to pursue goals and a bit of adventure. so with that said…i am excited for this little journey to challenge myself and to set out for an adventure… and mostly to have a little fun! and i think today… of all days of the year {my birthday} is a great day to start and share with you my list of 101 things in 1001 days…
