While creating my 101 in 1001 list, I looked at a lot of other lists for inspiration and ideas. One of the things that was immediately apparent to me was that I had already done A LOT of the things that other people still wanted to do. This gave me the idea of making a list of all the neat things that I've done in my life so far. They could be silly things, like "ride a mechanical bull," romantic things, like "take a sunrise hot air balloon ride with someone you love," or amazing things, like "backpack across Europe" (all of which I've done). The thing they'd have in common is that they all might possibly have been on someone's list of goals, regardless of how big, small, silly, or important they might be.
I think that it's often way too easy to get hung up on the things that you haven't done or that you can't currently do--too easy to look at what others have and feel bad about your own life. But maybe by making a list of things that you do have and that you have accomplished, you can realize how great your own life really is. I haven't made my list yet, but I'm starting to mentally take note of the things that would be on it, like the above three examples.
Interestingly enough, this morning I came across this site. I've done 39 of the 100 things listed.
39 at 28 years old? Not bad.
