PostSubject: "Life List"   4/8/2013, 1:45 pm

A few years ago I was watching Ellen on television & they were talking about a life list, a list that a girl made of all the things that she wanted to accomplish by the end of her life. If I recall she was diagnosed with cancer, don't quote me on that though, I'm not positive. The list contained things similar to a traditional resolution list, but it also included goals that were for fun rather than an accomplishment or need; such as sky diving or learn how to knit.

But I was thinking to myself that the term "Life List" seemed so much more in depth than that to me. To contain more in meaningful things. I guess it was just the way I interpreted it. Not to knock the traditional resolution list, Lord knows, we all need improvement, right? But what about things that are more in depth? Things that a person never really "graduate" from? Those daily challenges that we face over and over again?

Many people have a New Year Resolution, a list of goals that we plan and hope to accomplish by the end of the year. These things can be a wide variety of things (usually things "needed" to be accomplished), such as buy a home, lose weight, quit smoking, go back to school, etc.

Anyway, as I was watching the show, I kept thinking these thoughts as well as what in particular I had in mind that would be included in my life list. I was inspired! I even thought to myself that this would make a fantastic scrapbook page, a creative way to document my personal thoughts. So I made this page with 20 different items & I have to tell ya, I think it's one of my favorites. But more importantly than the scrapbook page is that it is something that I do try to focus on...on a daily basis. I strive, no matter how hard it may seem some days, to maintain this list with as much balance in my life as I humanly can.

But I thought I would share this with you all because I know I am not the only person in the world who is concerned about self improvement. So as you take a peek into my personal life, consider what you might have on your own life list, and maybe even embark on making a life list (not necessarily a scrapbook page, just the list) for yourself. Perhaps you might even want to put it away for your children when they grow up, a tangible item for them to hold on to after your gone. It will give your children or whoever reads it in later days, a glimpse into who you truly are deep down.
