life list

Do you have a life list? A list of desires that yet attainable, seem so unlikely to happen. Would you like to make these dreams happen in your lifetime? Each day we are living our life, it's so easy to put something off until the next day or month. Then another year goes by and we still haven't taken that trip or read that book. It seems so uncharacteristically sad that there are so many things to do and see and we hardly chip away at this list of life doings.

We spend so much of our life, just making it through our days. Going out looking to meet the right person, getting to the right point in our life, raising or kids, buying a house, just day to day living. All these are noble achievements, we just sometimes get washed up in the routine of life. I know I do. We just seem to put some of our lifetime dreams in a little journal or tucked somewhere tight in our minds. For that right time.

I have a list in my head, but not one that I have methodically written down.
My list is ever growing. It's important to try and live out some of these things before we let it go to long. I think variation in our lives, makes us better people and allows us to share our experiences with others.

In no specific order here are some of mine:

Take a road trip from coast to coast
See the Grand Canyon
Open a boutique
Meet a President
Sit on Myrtle Beach with my hubby and kids eating funnel cakes
Volunteer more
Learn to play the piano
Fly First Class
Attend a Julliard performance
Raise my children and encourage them both to have big dreams
Give someone else a chance I missed or never had
Swim with the dolphins
Stand under the Mirror Bean Sculpture in Chicago
Horseback ride on the beach -naked of course(I love the horse races- afraid of horses)
Attend the Kentucky Derby-play the part
Travel through Europe with my family
Be a mentor
Enjoy Carnival in Rio
Grow old with my friends and family
Catch a ball at a Giants game
Sunbath topless at the French Riviera
Attend a Superbowl
Teach my children all that I can about the world

What's on your list? Will you make an effort to make these dreams come true?

I've always wanted to learn to play the piano. I want my daughter to start taking lessons next year. Maybe I should learn with her.

Cool list. I don't know that I have a list. I would like to settle down in one place and feel like it is home. I would like to give Little Princess a stable childhood.

Your list is way cooler than mine! The most important on mine is a trip to Australia. And buying a house.

I like your list.

I do have a list. Mostly it has to do with the things I would like my wife and I to experience together once the kids are older, etc.
