Dreaming to achieve

Everyone seems to have this list… whether you want to call it a bucket list, dreams, goals, life list what ever it wants to be called…. whatever it be: I thought I should make mine. I love list. I get so much more done when I have things written down and a visual goal and time frame in mind. I think that we all should have things in life that we look forward to and we work toward. But only if you accomplish them. Otherwise what is the point of making a list? If you don’t accomplish them then it just becomes a list of disappointment and regrets… so lets not let that happen!
