Thoughts for Today

I've been thinking about turning 50 next February. There are a few things I would like to do before then, only to have a deadline to get them done. 

But 50 before 50, although a clever title, is not really practical for me given the pace life already runs at.

So I think 12 before 50 is much more attainable. Plus thinking of 50 things stresses my brain. 12 I can handle.

Here goes:

1.   I want to take a trip with my husband to celebrate 30 years together.
2.   I want to walk on African soil and hug African people.
3.   I want to sit court-side at a Thunder game. Or pretty dang close. 
4.   I want to travel with friends.
5.   I want to travel with family.
6.   I want to hit the 100 pounds lost mark.
7.   I want to ride a motorcycle.
8.   I want to read 12 books.
9.   I want to become more skilled at what I do. Work smarter, not harder.
10. I want to make more time for art.
11. I want to write a book.
12. I want to be a blessing to everyone I come in contact with. Even if it's just a smile. 

I think this is it. I'll be 50 on February 26th. Check back with me and we'll see how it goes.
