Back in 2005 I heard about the "101 in 1001" challenge. It's essentially setting 101 goals to accomplish in 1001 days, which is roughly 2.75 years. I completed most of my goals in the 1001 days between August 29, 2005 and May 26, 2008.
I'm really glad that I took on the challenge then because one of the most significant goals I set was to interview my grandparents about their family history. My grandfather was later diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia and has been in a long term care facility since January 2011. I am so thankful that I was able to spend time with him and capture our interviews on tape.
I also made a "kindred spirit" friend through investigating Freecycle - my goal of decluttering accomplished, I was able to add a friendship with a wonderful family!
I've decided to take on the challenge again. Between October 1, 2014 and June 28, 2017 I hope to accomplish 101 things. I'll be sharing the list and keeping you updated so check back!
