Bumblebee Girl on Mission Possible

101 things to do when you survive

I’ve stopped using the word Bucket list because the word has a focus on using the limited time before dying. I’ve chosen to focus positively on the time I’ve in front of me. The person who gave me this epiphany was Greig Trout and his 101 things to do when you survive. Even though I haven’t had cancer, Greig and the amazing 101 gang have accepted me with open arms and lots of love.

In 2007 I began to make my 101-list. Before that I just lived like a butterfly flying from flower to flower without any goals and before 2006 I just lived day by day not being aware of what I actually wanted to do in my life.

Now I’m more focused on what do I want to experience once or on a more regular basis.

To inspire you I’m sharing mine – the most important thing is that there is no limitations when you make the list. Just write it down no matter what you’ll never know what is going to be possible in the future ūüėČ

This list will grow and as I get the things done I’ll just put a line over the text and add a short explanation ūüôā
