Has a 1001 days come and gone already?

Thursday, November 12, 2009

In the middle of my hustle and bustle of life, I realized that my 101 goals in 1001 days has met it's deadline, and I totally forgot- oops. My date was Nov 3, 2009. I knew it was coming but the last few weeks have been nutty so it slipped my mind. I actually haven't been able to cross anything off the list in a while but I realized in the 1001 days that my life had changed a bit and certain things I thought I wanted to accomplish back then, I really don't care to now. There are also some items that I really want to accomplish even if I can't accomplish them in my first 1001 days. I'll keep putting them on my list until they are.
I think 101 goals in 1001 days are so important. Sure there are some things on my list that might be silly but they are always in the back of my mind and if I write them down and if I think about accomplishing them, it just might happen. So I'm posting my old list to show you all that I accomplished. I'll be working on my next list in the next few days and am glad to share it with you. Fill free if you are inspired to do yours and send it to me. I'd love to see what you'd put!

Wow! That's huge! You put all sorts of things on your list - big and little, mess-cleaning and family-building, personal interests and career. Some of your goals are so specific, yet others have lots of room for interpretation. I love your list. Five years ago I had some big hopes that I've been able to see happen, plus more. Within the last five years I've met the man of my dreams, married him, and had children with him. I also have a career that feels just right. Within the past few months I have felt like everything is in order and that I can just enjoy this bliss. Maybe it wouldn't hurt to write down some ideas for the future too. I always can find a closet or two to put on a list, the scrapbooking is never-ending, and making more memories to put in the scrapbooks is a good idea too. Thanks for the inspiration:).
