Your Mighty Life Lists

After an intense run at my Mighty Life List, I’ve been reading all of your dreams while I regroup. There are a lot of you who made lists, which I kind of knew, but it still shocks me for some reason. As it turns out, you can say, “Let’s make our lives awesome!” and the Internet will be like, “Oh, it’s on.”

I’ll round up everyone’s lists eventually, but for now here are links to a few of your lists and a taste of the genius you’re plotting:

beekeeper

Jennifer of Easter Kiwi is going to:
“Learn how to be a beekeeper and have a hive in our yard.”

Ali of Ali Awesome is going to:
“Be conversational in Maori, Spanish, Japanese, French and German.”

Mitali of Educated Tatya is going to:
“Meet Devdutt Pattnaik (mythologist) for coffee.”

    Maggie, you just topped off an already good day and made it awesome. I’m dancing!:)

    For the other featurees: the Tongariro crossing is – fantastic. As is travelling for six months (or a year!), floating through an underground cave with glowworms to light the way, and sleeping in a castle (just make sure your feet are dry). I hope you get to make them happen, sooner or later.

  • Annika Says:

    Yayyy! This made my evening, Maggie. I’ve had a life list for several years now but your experiences prompted me last month to make the list public. Eek!

    So exciting.

  • Caroline Says:

    I’m working on it! It’s actually more difficult than I thought it would be… I am not used to dreaming big. I need to do so more often.

  • Jessica Says:

    Thanks for sharing these, Maggie. So inspiring.

  • cee Says:

    Maggie, I had my own life list written years before you started the trend but I want to thank you for inspiring me to keep at it. I’ve actually crossed some things off my list and that is such a satisfying feeling!

  • Tracy Says:

    You were, in part, the inspiration for my “eco-size” life list. thanks.

  • Megan Says:

    A bit off the subject, but I’m haunted by that penguin picture. Is that frost on the poor devil or is he shedding like crazy? Looks like someone shot him with shaving cream or something??

    Can’t get it out of my mind. Seriously.

  • Laura Says:

    Tour an Egyptian excavation site with Dr. Zahi Hawass. My inner history geek would scream like a little girl.

  • Miss Grace Says:

    I made me list back when you first posted it and I thought HEY! Good IDEA!

    I keep it in the sidebar of my blog so as not to forget about it forever.

  • Up Mama's Wall Says:

    O I love these so much. Full of imagination and hope. I made my own in honor, and until I did I never fully realized how much I want to have a goat.
    xoxo
