This post will be its own page on the blog by the end of this week, which is a tremendously big deal here at More Cowbell. We don’t just add in pages willy-nilly up there on that navigation bar under the the masthead. That’s important real estate up there.
The best definition of The Life List can be found here. The Life List Club is about connecting, and publicly stating some life goals you’d like to accomplish over the next 12 months (for me that will be by the next 4th of July). It’s about encouraging others in their goals.
I cannot believe how hard it was to sit down and compile this list. I’ve got ROW80 Goals but those are writing goals. This is a list of goals that address every area of my life, including the messy parts, and I found it to be much scarier.
Being scared just makes me put on my Big Girl Panties and forge ahead so here goes…
