What do-gooders do with extra produce. Thanks for the idea, Stefanie.
What’s new on your life list?
I’m really proud of the growing sense of community over on Go Mighty. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to load up your life list and share your experiences. Reading them is a daily source of inspiration and, after 12 years of writing here about my life list and all of the support I have received, it’s a joy to finally have the opportunity to read more about your goals and cheer you on.
Here are a few favorites from the week:
I shared my thoughts in the comments on this one. I cannot recommend this enough. It will transform your wardrobe.
This story prompted me to add a new goal to my life list. Good luck, Jessica. You’ve got this.

This week, members of the Go Mighty community have begun sharing stories about what they achieved over the holidays and what they hope to accomplish in the coming year. Here are a few of my favorites:
It’s not just a holiday card. It’s a challenge.
Megan wants to capture 15 mothers on film. When she completes the project, Olay has agreed to donate $500 to a charity that supports maternal health. One down, fourteen to go.
Smart and generous. Melissa is acquiring the skill to create her own homestead while building for others.
Do you have a word you are focusing on for the new year? Britt does.
Congrats to Katherine for braving the waves and checking this goal off of her life list.
Wine suggestions. I know you’ve got them. Jessi needs them.
What have you resolved to cross off of your life list in 2013?
I gave this postcard of encouragement to my friend Fiona before her first swim lesson. While she conquers her fear of the water, I’m learning to swim freestyle. She’s sharing the experience on Go Mighty. Our first lesson was last week.
Here are a few experiences shared on Go Mighty that caught my eye this week:
Let’s talk about confidence. What makes you feel sexy?
Watch Kathryn complete her goal in 25 seconds.
Do you have a poem committed to memory? Come share your favorite line.
My doodling friend Helen Jane needs some nouns that begin with Q and X. Chime in, word nerds.
After a thirty-three year love affair, Sheri finally crossed this goal off of her list.
Have you added anything new to your life list, recently?
Laura just did a great post about our Mighty Events cocktail party, and it reminded me of something you should add to your Life List.
This is my new Internet crush, Joanna Goddard of Cup of Jo. I’d never met her before the party, but we got to talking, and Joanna mentioned that she had never opened a bottle of champagne. She said it scared her a little. People, this is a woman who just delivered a child.
Still, I have a lot of friends who feel the same way. And, thinking back, I used to pass the bottle off myself. We had an entire bathtub full of Mumm at the party, so I said, “This is one for the Life List. You have to do it.”
And so she did!
Hooray, Joanna! You are officially celebratory.
How about you? Have you ever opened your own champagne?
