Goals

I love lists. I make no apologies
for it, and admit that sometimes I make lists of lists, and then lose them,
adding ‘find list’ to the items of a new list.

Sometimes we find ourselves
saying “what are we going to do this weekend?”


I love 1001 in 101, solving the
twin conundrums above. I stumbled upon the website via the blogs I read, and
devoured the fabulous goals people are setting.

In order to spice things up a
bit, and to ensure we don’t find ourselves wandering aimlessly or sitting on
the couch, no matter how much our Puss pins us down, I decided to set 101
goals. I think my main goal in life to have fun. We work such long hours, in
stressful jobs to get the bills paid and I really think that you need a
distraction to think about and look forward to. From the simple things such as
joy on a friends face, to complex undertakings that affect hundreds of people.
It’s all important.


This is why I do the 365
challenge I think. I LOVE photography. I have my baby-camera (it’s a Fujifilm Finepix EXR550
nothing as cool as a DSLR but has most of the manual functions, and I am
coaxing a few good photos from it) and my phone on me at all times, and a film
camera which I am starting to get to grips with tucked away at home. It’s
something on a daily basis to be thinking about and looking for. Even if your
day is terrible, and I’ve had a few over the last few years.


Anyway, back from my tangent, I’m
going to set a page up on this little here blog and mark things off as I go
along. I don’t want it to be a dead page, but a vibrant link back page,
celebrating each goal as we achieve it. It may change, goals may become defunct
or un-achievable, but I’m going to do it. And I’m pledging to myself to
complete them all. I hope you enjoy, and
would like to join in!
Set your own 101 in 1001. Tell me about them, I’d
love to see the adventures you have planned!
