I want to be encouraged. I do. But it is just so easy to let every day stuff drag you down and make you forget what you want to do and why.

Like today...
I am NOT having a good day.
It happens. I accept it. I'll get through it and I'll re-focus and get it together tomorrow or the day after. I'm trying to stay positive. I am. Ugh! It's not easy.

Days like today are the days when I look at my list and think to myself: is all of this really realistic? Sigh.

The answer is of course it is. I just have to find a way to make it work. So I took a look at a few of my goals and decided to break them down as to what I would need to do to make them feasible.

For most if not all of the BIG trips, I need to renew my passport and save up a whole bunch of money (unless by some miracle I hit the lottery), so I'm not going to concentrate on those so much today. Some of the smaller ones are "moment of opportunity" goals, so nothing we can specifically do about those either.

For some of the smaller ones, like the cooking class and the skydiving (well those aren't small, but smaller...) I'm going to spend some time today researching where I can do these things and when.

And since I am in the research mood, if anyone has anything or their lists (or even not on the list) and they don't know where to start, let me know. Post it in the comments section and I'll see what I can do.

I promise I will be my usual bright and cheery self by tomorrow. :)


  1. write a book!!! that's what i want to do before i die. maybe a collection of my blogs or something, but i want to publish a book before its all over with.
