My List

Last year I got together with my mom friends and we had a ladies night, drinking wine, sharing memories of our lives, looking at our values and those things we might want to accomplish in our lifetime. Sharon hosted the party and it was an amazing night of self actualization. We all wrote our life goals of things, places, family goals, possessions, charities, sports, travel, etc.

Here is the introduction from
Have you ever promised yourself you would learn to play an instrument, test drive a Ferrari, or simply tidy the garage? Well don’t put them off any longer. With My50 you can make a list of things to do before you die – your life ambitions, goals and targets. In addition to your list of things to do, you can list your lifetime achievements and build up a history of your life successes and accomplishments.
Scuba-dive – Great Barrier Reef
Visit Paris
Climb a mountain – Mt. Everest
Christmas in New York
Go to a sporting event (Horse racing)
Do a parachute jump
Learn something new
Serenade someone
Be happy
Try ice climbing
See the Niagara Falls
Swim with dolphins
Go on a detoxing weekend
Learn a new language – or perfect an old one (French)

Go naked – this one I chose from the site (pretty great description and I couldn’t help myself): Let’s clear one thing up from the start, there’s nothing wrong with being naked! You won’t see other animals parading around in jeans and a T-shirt, and we’re only animals too, right? OK, we admit, arriving at work naked as the day you were born may be frowned upon, as would displaying your own buns in your local supermarket. We’re not suggesting anything as daring as this however. Try stripping off somewhere a little more excluded like a quiet field or beach and for a short time feel totally liberated as you run and swing in the fresh air as nature intended. Go naked, and get back in touch with nature.
