My lifelist

How many times have you said, “Oh I’d love to try…” or “I’d love to visit…” or “I wish I could learn…”? Well a life list is a nudge in the direction of achieving these things.

A life list or wish list is simply a list of all the things you’d like to achieve, and writing them down in a list is a way to gather these thoughts and encourage you to begin making things happen rather than just wishing your life away.

I wrote my life list just before my 30th birthday when I suddenly realised that I hadn’t done any of the things I had assumed I would have done, before turning thirty (at 29, 30 seems like some sort of huge mile stone).

So now I am beginning to achieve and experience these things and I’m still adding more to my list.

I have a list to the right of this page with hopes and dreams 🙂 All different experiences in their own right and all for different reasons and sometimes, one experience leads to another. For example; through studying Gaelic, I then learned about a Gaelic college on the Isle of Skye. instantly I thought, I want to go there and spend time in a gaelic speaking environment to help my confidence and ability at the spoken word.

So I went.
