Today's Path: It is complete!!!

Just shy of two months, I have finished compiling My 50 List.

My 50 List started out as a way to help define my future and to keep me from freaking out about it. Little did I know that I would struggle and wrestle so much with myself while finding 50 things I wanted to do before I turned 50. I have come to a better understanding of who I am through this.

I have divide my 50's into categories. Many of my 50's are things that I want to see, others are what I want to do, and others still are things I want to accomplish. Several overlap into more than one category, but I feel where they are is where they need to be.

So without further ado, I present My 50 List:

To accomplish:

  • Live on the beach
  • Get my EMT certification

too complicated,
I'm trying just not to kill myself everyday. My family needs me, just don't want to disappoint them.

I know life comes at you fast. We just have to embrace it and learn how to make the negatives into positives which can be really hard. You are not alone in this craziness we call life.
