50 Remix– Things I Will Do in the Next Half-Century

Posted Feb 20 2009 7:22pm

cimg1778 I’m feeling a bit exposed. Most women refuse to reveal their age after about 25. Today marks my 50th birthday. Yesterday I looked back at 50 things I’ve already done. Today I look forward to things I will do in the next 50 years. And yes, I do intend to live to 100 or beyond in health, wealth, and happiness. So here’s my list. As of about ten o’clock this morning, I’ll already be crossing number one off the list :)

I’ve seen a most amazing phenomenon and many people have written about it. I have even experienced it first-hand. Those things that we write down we usually do. Somehow the brain makes a connection with the written word as if we have programmed it. Just by writing it down, we are already on the way to realizing it. Then by making it public, as in this blog post, it makes it even more likely as  I now become accountable for my vision.

So what does your list include?
