Today is officially 1001 days since the 1st of January 2009, and the start of my 101 in 1001 list.
While I didn’t even finish writing the list in all that time it’s been interesting over the last couple of years to see what has remained relative to my interests, and to be reminded about how much my life has changed.
I never got that new lounge suite, or tickets to Germany. Life took a different direction and I went to Asia instead. I stopped caring about $2000 couches and learned to live with less.
I stopped counting all the new music I’d listened to and recipes I’d tried. Living with Brendan, Kate, and Jason exposed me to lots of new music and food.
I got a nicer camera and started to learn how to use it, moved houses a couple of times, got tattooed, finished a relationship that wasn’t working any more, fell in love again, quit my office job, and grew my jewellery business. It’s been a big couple of years.
A few things are obvious from the list: I need to read more actual books and be healthier. I didn’t quite make my goal of a week without sugary treats, I’m half way through a week now though. A few days too late.
This year I’m planning a list that I can complete in 365 days, between birthdays. A shorter time frame means I’m far more likely to keep the goals in mind and put in a little effort to get them done. Excited.
