101 Goals in 1001+Days


This year didn’t start off like I thought it would. I found January to be a very happy and yet very lazy month for me. I turned “that” age in December, you know the one where there are no longer any calendar days to support your age..It’s like something clicked and said , ” It’s REALLY time to grow up, Candice” or ” Get your life together, like really  this time” and yet I find myself unable to seemingly do this adulting thing like I think I should be doing it. I stumbled upon a template for  101 goals in 1001 days in an old journal and I figured there was no time like the present to get it going. I’ve been working on this list for a couple weeks and I’ve already started to cross off a few things already so there might just be something to this whole thing.  I used categories such as: mom, wife, diy, travel, career, sister, fitness, “just for fun” to help me compose my list. It’s also the start of the Chinese New Year, so I figured I’d stop monkeying around and get to it ( see there what I did there)
