So that little Life List?? It’s quite the motivator.
Maggie Mason put a challenge out there on her website about checking one thing off this month and I picked “Getting my blood sugar issues figured out once and for all” as the one to tackle this month. Little did I know I’d be crossing this off first! Or that I’d be scheduling skydiving for this month (this coming Saturday) or that I would make the appointment with a new doctor to get this blood sugar stuff figured out and that this new doctor would tell me that she’s worked with a lot of people who either had diabetes or blood sugar issues and none of them are still living with it today! Which means, people, I will beat this. I am going to beat this.
I added Bubble Tea to my Try 1,000 new things. But I was not a fan and didn’t have my own camera, so thanks to flickr for this linked photo.
I crossed off the “Big Give” as we gave our car away. I’m not entirely sure I want to cross this one indefinitely but for now … it is.
And we made Sun Pickles! as part of my Make 1,000 lovely things.
And they were (and are) DELICIOUS!
I love this. Checking things off but more than that – recognizing the experiences I’m having as something other than “what we’re doing right now” I love knowing that I’m making memories, that I’m doing something I’ve always wanted to do. That I’m working on a goal. That goal just happens to be a fuller life.
