Life List

I would call this my “bucket list” but it sounds too terminal. This list is to celebrate life – to experience what life has to offer me. It is to live by staying in the moment, to not look back on regrets or feel anxious about tomorrow.

Walk with me as I check off and add to my Life List – let me share my experience with you. Keep in mind, this list is perpetually building over time.
