101 Goals

A few years ago this blogger introduced me to the 101 Goals in 1001 days project.  I made my list of 101 Goals and 1001 days later I had completed about 60+ of them, crossed off another 20 after deciding I no longer considered them important, and just didn't get around to doing the others. 

Now it is time to start a new list.  (Okay, actually I started this a month ago, but am just now getting around to sharing it.)  If you notice blank spots next to certain numbers it is not because I don't have a goal there, it is because it is a little to personal, a little to close to my heart, and I'm just not comfortable sharing it out loud with anyone just yet.  Maybe someday I will.  And then again, maybe I won't.  We'll see.

Anyway... here's the list...
