The 101 Things in 1001 Days Challenge is one I’ve done twice before. Well, I should say I’ve attempted it twice before. I don’t think I’ve ever finished a list. But they’re so much fun to do that I wanted to give it another shot. Half of the fun is thinking of things you want to do, and giving yourself a timeline to complete them. And even though I’ve never completed 101 things, I’ve still done a lot of things that I might not have otherwise, so it’s still a win in my book.
This new list is inspired by the new life my son and I are creating. A peaceful home life, a meaningful work and school life, and leisure time spent exploring our garden, the city, and the surrounding areas. Most of the items are tourist attractions – or not-so-touristy attractions! – in my very own city that I’ve never seen, or haven’t visited since my own childhood and want to revisit and share with my son. Some are things just to get us out of the house more often and take advantage of the memberships we have, or the fun free things the city offers.
Some are crafts and home improvement projects I’ve put aside for too long. Some are to help me be a better mother – like trying new recipes and baking treats together. Some are to help me be a better person – like finally pushing myself to do something with those books I’ve written and to start doing yoga regularly again. Some are just for fun, some have a huge goal at the end. Some are easy and can be done in a day, some will take longer to accomplish.
No matter what happens, it’s going to be a fun 1001 days! I’ll be sharing posts about what we’ve done and how it’s all going periodically, with a monthly recap since several items are “Do ____ # a month.”
Have you ever done a challenge like this? Are you interested in trying?
