I believe strongly in making lists and planning life. That doesn’t mean I don’t encourage flexibility or that I deny it’s a necessary part of life. With a GPS system you must enter the destination. It’s not fair to get mad at it if you never make it to that vague place that you said you maybe wanted to go… someday. Life works identically. I see people all the time say they want to do X, Y, or Z, but don’t know yet if they’ll be able to because of A, B, or C reason. Rather than making the choice in advance to do it and working energetically to aligning to where it happens almost as if automatically, people fret about how to force it to happen.
I could talk for ages about this and the Law of Attraction. Perhaps on my other blog… but for now let’s list out a few things that I just can’t wait to do.

Most of these are travel related, not surprisingly. (Photos from Google.)

Most of these stem from travel research over the years, but I was also inspired by these articles.
