My Life List To 47

I love birthdays!  It’s a big deal.  Ask Mr. Rosey.  I love my birthday.  I love everyone’s birthday.  I love celebrating the blessings and moments that happen during the year.  Each year is special.  I love life and being able to share it with my family and friends.  I want to be inspired.  I was inspired by Jenny at Learn with Jenny to create this list.  I want to inspire.  I want to do fun things.  I want to learn new things.  I want to challenge myself.  I want to live my life to the best me.

So I put together a list of 47 things I want to do before I turn 47.  It’s not really a goal list.  It’s a life list.  It’s in no particular order.  It’s just stuff I want to do and I want to do it this year.  I’m committed to completing everything on my list.  Oh yes, and sharing my experience with you.  Thank you for joining me on my journey to 47!
