Life List

I once had an entry talking about my ‘life list’. This was a list of all the things I wanted to do before I die – inspired by Ted Leonsis’ My 101 List. The problem is that as I come up with things I want to do, I can’t find that list. How can I hold myself accountable to my wishes and dreams if I can’t remember what was on the list? Now I have a page. I will update it as I realize the dreams (both done and to be done).
