A Little List

I’ve got a handy little list of cool things I’m going to do to bring spontaneity, delight, beauty and meaning to my life, peppered throughout the everyday. This list is a work in progress so I will add to and edit it as I create and achieve new goals.

  1. Buy a Mazda 3 Sport hatchback in a fun colour (no silver here! Give me teal or indigo). Pay for it in cash. (March 2013. Due to the emergency nature of this purchase, it was not done 100% in cash, but I’m okay with that.)
  2. See Shania Twain perform live. (May 2013 in Vegas!)
  3. Do an after-dark snowshoeing trek finished up with chocolate fondue.
  4. Try yoga on a stand-up paddleboard.

  9. Become a foster parent.
  10. Learn to hold crow pose in yoga.
  11. Rent a 2-bedroom apartment that I can afford to pay for on my own. (Done! April 2013)
