101 Things in 1001 Days


 The decision to do 101 things in 1001 days was not taken lightly. I had been thinking about it day and night from when Sammy put the challenge out there when she posted her 101 Things in 1001 days list. Chad is so sick of hearing it because I said he must join me so we can put something positive out into the Universe so we can get something positive back. Mark is a lost cause so I didn't even suggest it to him. Chad said I will never come up with 101 things but I proved him wrong. I should annoy him some more and get JD to do it with me.



Some of the things are silly, some are already in progress (Universe PLEASE be kind) and some are almost impossible to achieve but I am putting them out there to make them become achievable. I am going out on a limb and following the belief that what you put out into the universe you get back. It did take me forever to come up with the list and I spent forever on Pinterest finding links to ideas and then narrowed it down to what was appropriate to me and my life. The first 60 (not in order of first 60) ideas were easy and I thought this was a piece of cake, then I stumbled for ideas.


Here is my list and in no proper order - wish me luck as I brave the fear of putting stuff out there - I guess I can already tick number 2 off (perhaps) [nope still holding back with some details].

  1. You smashed that list out the park - I'm so pleased my list inspired you to write a list because inspiring someone else was one of my 101 things to do! So many good ideas and I especially love 101! Here's to smashing goals!

    1. Thanks for reading Sammy.
      I just saw I made 2 errors, eating takeout should only twice a month not twice a week, that is worse than I do now ��
      And did bookkeeping and accounting course, same thing, so need to fix that tomorrow

    1. Hi Sula, I started writing out my list long before posting it and I also thought I would battle with finding 101 things to list. As you can see some of mine are really simple things and some are only chores. What made it more motivating was the fact that we had already planned our New Zealand trip so I had something exciting to list. However saying that, it was touch and go as we only received our visas 2 days before we flew out.
      It is fun though and has motivated me to do things that I have procrastinated about forever and I am really motivated to travel more and I want to go to Australia next.
      Looking forward to your list and following along as you tick them off
