Along the path...

I was looking through some old posts on my blog today...trying to pin down which years I've completed reading through the Bible...and happened upon this post from April 2009.  It was very interesting to see which topics I have completed, which ones no longer interest me, and to find that most I still long to do!


It was entitled, "Along the path to personal growth and happiness." 

I would like to...
1...have my entire house clean and decluttered all at the same time
2...see the King Tut exhibit
3...be physically fit
4...visit Maine
5...Canada
6...and Washington DC
7...walk for 45 minutes every day
8...have another Jack Russell
9...take a cruise to Alaska
10...start a new Bible study
11...finish a quilt for each of my children and grandchildren (four down so far)
12...speak Spanish fluently
13...spend quality time in a swimming pool
14...read more
15...paint rooms
16...and canvases
17...have a vegetable garden
18...plant a fig tree
19...and a pecan tree
20...volunteer for hospice
21...learn to make beautiful polymer clay beads
22...go bowling
23...visit Oregon
24...make myself an apron
25...and dresses for the girlies
26...get all of our photos in albums
27...give up TV for a month
28...travel to put flowers on my parents' graves
29...and to see Kevin and Carla
30...have a girls' weekend with Rita May
31...and with Nancy
32...be able to summer in a cooler climate
33...invent something useful
34...play with the dogs more
35...journal
36...send one card/note to someone each week
37...install sliding units in several of my cabinets
38...make a vintage recipe book
39...have a flower garden
40...hang clothes to dry outside
41...visit Ireland again
42...and Debbie in Seattle
43...start an Etsy store someday
44...if I could think of something to sell
45...get my passport stamped a few more times
46...visit my reflexologist once a month
47...follow through with more of my creative impulses
48...play classical guitar
49...go down three dress sizes
50...sell the stamps I no longer use on e-bay
51...take a class in almost anything

The ones I have completed have been struck through. The ones which are no longer relevant have been grayed out.  I think I may make this its own page under the blog title to keep these within easy access to remind myself of more often.

  2. There is nothing wrong with having goals but why not concentrate on crossing one out per month ? It might be less overwhelming.

    1. This is more of a bucket list, definitely not something I’m in a hurry to finish.
