The 100 List [revisited]

One of my besties:  Robin over at Penned Obscurities sat down and wrote a list of 100 things she wanted to do. You could call it a "Bucket List" if you want, but it's not a list of everything you want to do before you die. It is a list is 100 achievable actions that have been set out for yourself and are completely achievable. It's like a list of 100 goals. The point of this list is to challenge you to do at least one thing on your list every month/week/day. The point is it does not matter when you achieve these goals, as long as you have them and want to accomplish them. It is one you can participate in by recording your progress on your blog, journal or personal diary.

Robin started this list as a way to catalog her dreams, as a way to never lose passion for life. While creating this list, I will admit, the entire process of choosing what I wanted to put into it gave me some sleepless nights but not as many as it probably gave Robin. I would be asleep, or doing something random and then realize "I want this on my list!" Some of this stuff is silly and some of it made me melancholy—knowing that maybe some of these weren't going to actually happen (but I sure want get as many of them accomplished as possible).  I just have to keep a positive outlook and really try to put forth and effort to do this list. This list is s supposed to help you keep passion alive. So Robin asks, “What better way to be passionate than to instill hope, even if it is only in myself?”
With that I challenge you to write a list of 100 dreams and hopes that you want to accomplish in one lifetime. I challenge you to visit my blog or hers and tell us that you made your list and how you are going to document it.
 I set up a link for it so you can link up with us and show us your 100 list.
