The "I’m-Not-Waiting-Anymore-List" Revisited
Susan Wagner wrote a great post this week about one of the items on her life list – running a 5k.
It reminded me that I have a list list, of sorts, too. It’s my “I’m-Not-Waiting-Anymore-List,” and frankly, I haven’t even peeped at in in MONTHS.
It started with this post: What’re We Waiting For?
So here I am, months later, looking at all of my lofty aspirations.
Some of them are about to happen.
Get a professional family portrait taken.
Some of them never will.
Run a 5k.
Run a 10k.
Some, I completely forgot about.
Use my china at least once a month.
Light candles. Often.
Some of them I dream about all the time.
Finish the backyard remodel.
Create a backyard you want to take pictures of.
Some of them are missing, and will be rectified.
Write something EVERY DAY.
Pray instead of worry.
Have a picnice on the living room floor instead of dinner at the table.
Some of them seem impossible, foolish, unworthy, unrealistic or just plain silly.
But they are my silliness, and I’m keeping it that way. My son informed me today that he planned to be a “swim racer” as well as a gymnast. Add these to his previously stated lofty aspiration of building sky-scrapers in North Dakota.
Dare to dream, Scooby.
