101 in 1001

Setting goals for myself has always been a big part of my life.  It's a great feeling when I can cross a goal off my list, and it's also a learning experience when a goal is not achieved.  A few of my blogger friends have inspired me to start my own 101 in 1001. I've enjoyed watching Crystal Cattle, Brandi Buzzard, and Melissa Chestnut cross things off of their lists and reading about their experiences with accomplishing their goals. I've taken a few ideas from each of their lists and tried to incorporate them into a list of my own. Thanks girls for inspiring me to start a 101 in 1001!

I believe writing my goals down will provide me with a better chance of achieving them.  In addition, it will also hold me accountable to you to accomplish what I set out to do.

Here's the run down of how this works. You have 1001 days to complete 101 goals. The goals in progress are in green and the goals that are completed are in orange.
