101 in 1,001 | Update

Monday seems like a good day to refresh my memory about the goals I set for myself, right? Help set my focus on the week ahead - give my confidence a little boost knowing that I've actually been accomplishing things over the past two years.

When I thought to give my goals a little update, I honestly thought I would hardly be able to cross any off the list. But it turns out, I've been doing more than I've realized, which was relieving. I mean, I knew I had a baby, but that was about it. Hopefully with a year left to knock out some of these goals, I'll be able to cross some off the list and feel at peace knowing that I'm doing things that I've been wanting to do.

At one point, I thought about scratching this list altogether. I felt like my goals had changed, and I had changed as a person since I've made this list. But then I kinda realized that I had made this list for a reason - these things were important to me back when I made the list. I'd be doing my barely twenty-five year old self an injustice if I just threw these away. So, I'm going to keep them. And I'm going to continue to work towards them. Hopefully by next October, I'll be ready to make a new list for another 1,001 days, and I can set my focus on new and wonderful things.

Start: January 7, 2015
