50 Things

One of the first steps in setting your intentions or goals for the future is to just do a brain dump by listing 50 things you want … if money were no object, if anything was within your reach … how would you spend your time? Where would you be? What would you being doing? Nothing is too outrageous. Now is the time to let all your hopes and dreams fly!

The list of 50 things is challenging, especially if you’re doing it for the first time and you aren’t used to letting your dreams flow. But for me, it’s been fairly easy these past years because I’ve grown so used to doing it.

However, this year it’s the toughest it has been in a while. I’ve been struggling all week to come up with 50 things and I’m not really very excited by what I did put down. Some of it is okay, I suppose all of it is okay, in a mediocre kind of way, but nothing really jumps out and pulls me in and makes my heart pound and sing, “Yes! This! NOW!” It feels like I’m forcing it.

Maybe 2019 doesn’t need any intention other than I will live in it. I will get back on track and find my passion for life again. I will get unstuck (I AM unstuck!) and I will “do” things … create, feel, be.

  1. This is an excellent challenge! While I may not post it to the world, I’m excited to see where my dreams suggest I should go. I know some of the activities — of course– but I bet I can come up with some that are completely new. We’ll see, I guess. Thanks for this. Chuck Bowie
