101 in 1,001

101 things in 1001 days list goals accomplish to do short term house family wellness personal improvement travel

I thought I would get back into the swing of blogging by doing a fun, multipurpose post!  We have had so many life changes happening lately that my short term goals and things I want to do have felt really jumbled.  I'm a huge list person and generally keep a daily to-do list in a notebook and a weekly/monthly schedule in my planner but I usually reserve those for things like "get car inspected", "phone bill due", or "buy water".  So, the purpose of this list of 101 things is to have a physical reminder of things I would like to accomplish in the next 1,001 days (roughly 2.75 years) and by publishing it here I have a community to keep me accountable!  Some of these are rather small things that I've been meaning to do for a while and some of them are huge goals that are going to be really meaningful to cross off.


So, here goes!
