Life List

(by Lauren)

I’ve been inspired to create a list of things I want to do before I die — or, things I want to do that will make life a bit more fun. I know I’ve lived well for my first 20-something years, because there are many things I’ve already checked off — thanks to my parents, the opportunities I’ve had & taken advantage of, and influence from the heavens. I know I might not get to everything I write down, but I’m going to try.

Here’s my list. It’s not 100 things yet, but I will continue to add to it as time, and life, goes by.  Some things on here, I’ve already done — but they’ve had a spot on my list the whole time. If you think there’s something I should do or try, or you like one of my list items, let me know by commenting below or sending me a note.

    So, Lauren, you’ve inspired this “old lady” to get with the program in start a “life list” – I saw The Bucket List a week or so ago, and I don’t want to wait til someone tells me – “It’s almost over” to get going on things!

    So – THANK YOU, my friend. You’ve inspired me, encouraged me, shook me up a little – I’ll be publishing my list as it evolves –

    Thank you. I love you kiddo!
