40 for my 40


In 2015, I celebrate my 40th birthday. I am excited for the year ahead and decided to commemorate it with a special list. Ask Rob about the list and you might hear a sigh. I have made lists for far less important reasons. There is always something that I want to try, achieve, learn, tackle. I have done a lot of soul work to become less busy the last few years and I am keeping that in mind when creating this list. I want these ideas to inspire me, not make me anxious or move into "check the box" attitude. For me, how many I accomplish is not the goal. What matters more is the process and enjoyment of trying these things.

As you will see, I don't have all 40 created. The planner in me was itching towards a completed list, but what fun would that be? I want to see what life brings my way and what ideas you have. Have a suggestion? Let me know! Interested in one? Come & join me. Sharing this with friends will only make it sweeter.
