1. A lot of your posts are travel related. Where did your desire to travel come from?
One day when I was in grade 6, we opened up our social studies books and there was a picture of a very beautiful city - Prague. I had never seen anything like it and thought to myself, "I want to see that one day."
Twenty years later that dream came true and I haven't looked back. There is so much to see in our big, beautiful world -- and I want to see it all!
2. Are you happy with the progress of your blog?
Overall, yes. Do I wish I was caught up? Yes. Would I like to be crossing more things off my list? Definitely! Will I keep at it? Of course. I'm having a great time with this!
3. What is the best thing about having your blog?
The best thing is that, even though I'm not whizzing through my list and crossing things off left and right, I am getting some things done.
I remember a few years when I started making lists of things I wanted to do each summer... The long days and warm temperatures always flew by so quickly, and I hated feeling like I had missed out once fall rolled around each year. My lists were shorter and much simpler then. They included items such as go on a day trip, walk around both parts of Wascana Lake (the main loop and the more natural side), enjoy a picnic or BBQ, and so forth.
What I learned from making the short and simple "summer want-to-do" lists was that I actually did some of the things on my list before fall rolled around. It made me realize that, even if I only accomplished a few things on my list, I didn't feel like I had missed out on our short summer season. It was such a big help to me and it also made this much bigger goal of 40 things not only reasonable but also exciting!
Here's my challenge to you: Now that summer is fading and fall is right around the corner, what are some things you wished you would have done or made time for this summer that you can make a suggested to-do list from for next summer?
Time is precious... don't waste it!
