The Importance of a Life List

It’s 5:00 am and I know I should be sleeping, but for some reason, I couldn’t sleep again. So I did the inevitable and got my laptop and now, I’m writing this after looking through my life list. For a few days now, I have been busy with a lot of tasks for the different businesses that I have, so I haven’t had time to write. It’s been bugging me. I’m glad that the universe found a way to give me this time for writing.

Yesterday, on our way home, I was filled with energy and gusto for life. I was telling my husband that I think there is not enough hours in a day for all the work that I want to accomplish. I was telling him how excited I am for Monday, when I could start working again. I never felt anything like this when I was still employed. I know that this may sound crazy, but really, I never had the same zest for doing something greater.


Anyway, I think this zest, this passion, or whatever you want to call it, may be the reason why I am up this early. I woke up and I just wanted to grab my laptop and work or blog. When I opened my computer, I was drawn to read my life list. As I was reading it, I realized that there were a lot of things that I wanted to remove and I wanted to add. I realized something more important, too, that a lot of the things there were things that I wanted to do for others and not really something for myself. I realized that this was true for those that I have already accomplished and for those that I have yet to accomplish.

Looking through my life list gave me the renewed passion that I have for life. It gave me a clearer picture of who I am as a person and what I really want to achieve or do with my life. I highly recommend that you create your own list.

Here is my list:
