Bottom of the list, I place my name.
Going to work and playing the game.
Soon to be forty, I change my fate,
And love my life, now I celebrate.
Thanks to my family, hugs for my friends,
Indulge myself, true love never ends.
As of October 31, 2010, I celebrated 40 years on this planet. The adventures and the chaos, the successes and learning opportunities along this journey have transformed me into the person I am today – astounding!
For this particular landmark, I chose the motto “Celebrate Life!” then brainstormed forty joyful activities to be completed in the forty days counting down to my 40th birthday.
The Daisy List
After my forty days of celebration, I decided to create my Daisy List – activities I want to complete before I die and start “pushing up daisies” (my twist on the infamous Bucket List). I designed a daisy poster, writing on each petal a specific goal. When I’ve completed an activity, I’ll pluck the petal and place it in a special container – a visual reminder of the intentions, manifestations and blessings in my life.
