On 101 Things In 1001 Days Challenge

I saw this challenge on one of the blogs I follow, Popped Black Woman Blog (please pop over and join. She has very interesting and encouraging post on life. Quickly became one of my faves). I was intrigued about 101 Things because its not quite the typical resolution that challenges you to accomplish/change your life in one year, this challenge gives you 2.75 years to accomplish goals.

It took me almost a week to think of things I wanted to do in 101 days because I wanted them to be very realistic combining the hard with the simple. I divided my list into categories so I can keep track of goals. I wrote the goals on index cards and will put  them on a calendar I am making for this challenge. Thank you very much PoppedBlackWomanBlog for bringing this to my attention and I hope you will be my #19
