I read on Justice Fergie’s website about her Life List-100 Things She’d Like to Do Her Lifetime, a list she created in preparation for a women's retreat she had coming up.
I loved the idea of the list but wanted to push myself to incorporate where I am in this list and any steps I’m currently taking to make these things happen. Also, I just finished my 29th birthday so I figure, why wait 'til 30?!
Creating this list has really empowered me to pull from my transition into a more spiritual life. My personality isn’t for everyone and I’m not perfect, but God created me and I am doing the work to grow into everything he wants me to be so I’m loving what I’ve come up with. I truly do my best to practice discernment, positive behavior, and a service attitude. Sounds a lil’ corny right? Maybe not but either way I’m ok with that.
So! I want to share my life list as my 29th birthday comes and give insight as to why I feel like the list item will impact my life and the life of others. Hopefully you will be inspired to write yours and put into the universe everything that you want to live your best life.
To narrate your life list, you have to write down and give account of what you want, steps you're taking to get it, and why it's important to you.
Here we go! It’s kinda long but yours will be too!
