A Little Life List Inspiration from Go Mighty

Life List Inspiration | Mighty Girl

One of my favorite things about Go Mighty so far is reading the stories people share as they work towards achieving a goal on their life list. Here are a few that caught my eye this week:

Helena just crossed an item off of her list. She aspired to send a note of thanks to everyone she cares about. Read her stories about it here.

Elizabeth is making 50 cakes for 50 people. She had me at rum glaze, but this Cherpumple in miniature looks just as tasty.

My friend Fiona is conquering her biggest fear. Let’s cheer her on.

This makes me want to pack my hot glue gun and catch the next flight to NYC.

Another grand life list project in action. Sarah has 2 down and 998 to go.

Anyone in the mood for some light reading? Jason needs some help. Full disclosure: Disgruntled gnomes are involved.

“And really, the words themselves are not mine – but the story and the meaning is.”

Corinna wants to be rejected 100 times in 100 days. Yes, you read that right.

“There aren’t that many female violin makers, and I’m not sure why that is. One would think women would be better at handling small carving, wood shaving, purfling, and other details, but maybe the woodshop factor has kept women away. This is different than a woodshop, though – it is more of an art studio using wood as a medium. ” – As a part of her life list, Caitlin is learning to make a violin. Follow along.

What goal from your life list do you plan to cross off next?

    I’m going to watch the ball drop in Times Square on New Year’s Eve at midnight, when it will then be my 42nd birthday. Sounds fun, right? But for me it involves overcoming several factors. I hate crowds. It WILL be crowded. I hate noise. It will be noisy. I hate cold. It’s winter, chances are I will be cold.

    But I’ve always wanted to do this and now I’m getting to share the experience with my husband and two fantastic children. Wish me luck!

    Oh wow. Thanks so much for including my 100-rejections quest. I’m totally thrilled…and such good company, too! I was the very lucky recipient of that rum glaze cake you mention above (Elizabeth Miller was the one who first told me about your site). The cake was, if possible, even better that it looked.

  • Neen Says:

    Oh I love this idea. When we start how do we let you know?

  • Neen Says:

  • Erin Says:

    I’ll be going to New Zealand in April, which will knock “cross the equator” off of my list. Squeee!! :)

    I am so honored to not only be mentioned here, but to also have my 50 cakes for 50 people goal sponsored by Go Mighty. Just so you know, Ms. Mason, should you ever find yourself in Portland, OR, I’ll have a cake with your name on it waiting for you.

  • Caitlin Says:

    Wow! Thanks for including my violin making here. It’s going well so far, and I have some new photos to share.

  • Sara @ Zahara Dessert Says:

    I want to thank you, if it wasn’t for your Mighty Life List, I wouldn’t have started my Life List and blog 1 year ago. My life has changed so much for the better since writing my list. 2013 will be filled with new adventures and I am so excited that I will be ticking the first one off for 2013 very soon = ‘Live and work overseas for 1 year’. Thanks again for inspiring me to take the leap.
