101 things in 1001 days

The new year has arrived and everyone has most likely come up with their New Year Resolutions lists. I came up with my own last year, in this post. Let’s be honest, I miserably failed to complete all of these. There is something about lists we all love though. Lists motivate you, inspire you, make you feel more organized and crossing off items off your list gives you an internal satisfaction that you have succeeded in something. You feel a sense of accomplishment. I have definitely had my share of failed lists. Not going to lie, we all have. When I came across Design Darling’s 101 things in 1001 days, I knew this was a list I had to create for myself and with 1001 days to complete it, the list seems attainable and better than New Year Resolutions.

    This is such a great idea! I might give it a try, although the idea is a bit daunting haha. Trying to think of all of these and it definitely forces you to stop and think about your life in general. I just did 4 goals for this year and doing that took a lot. You've got some great ones though :)xoThe Fashionista Bubble

      I always complain I don't do things, but when I want to do something I get overwhelmed. So I think this will help and give me sufficient time to accomplish.
