101 Things in 1001 Days

101 things in 1001 days

I love making lists, specifically lists of goals. For a while, I’ve been wanting to make a “101 in 1001″ list. 101 goals in 1001 days, inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Mackenzie Horan (Here’s her list). I encourage all of you to write down your goals…whether for the next week, month, year, or lifetime. I find that goal-setting really helps me put life in perspective and give it meaning!
