A Living List

by HEAB on June 16, 2011

Not long ago, I read a thread about Live Lists in the Goddess Circle, not a list of stuff to do before you die, but a list of stuff to do while you’re ALIVE. It got me thinking about a list of my own. Wanna hear it?

  • Get certified to teach pre-natal yoga here.  I practiced yoga throughout my pregnancy, and I truly believe it helped prepare my body for labor and delivery.  I would love to be able to give the gift of yoga to other mamas-to-be.

That’s me, nine months preggo in Dancer’s Pose.

  • Milk a cow and churn my own butter.  Something I’ve always wanted to do. Weird?  Perhaps.
  • Paint more watercolors.  I don’t know much about painting, but I love playing around with my watercolor set.  So fun!

Using this as a guide, I recently painted the above card for a special friend

  • Take a photography and photo editing class.
  • Visit China, Mongolia, Thailand, Vietnam – This one is going to take a while.
  • Go mountain trekking in Nepal – Another one that might take a while, but I will drink tea with Sherpas after many miles of trekking someday.
  • Make this tent & camp out overnight with Summer in our backyard.
  • Refinish a piece of furniture and fall in love with it – I’m thinking something along the lines of this.
  • Shop more often at flea markets/consignment shops and find amazing pieces of furniture that simply need a little love…see above.
  • Buy a house in the mountains and spend the days playing with the fam. while staring at our inexpensive, but beautifully refinished furniture. 😉
  • Buy some funky Chuck Taylors and wear them without socks. I have never owned a pair. Sad, no?
  • Get a sewing machine and learn to sew so I can make a skirt like this.
  • Rest the entire upper half of my body on the floor in wide-legged seated forward fold. I aspire to this…

It will happen.  Just gotta loosen up my hamstrings a bit.

What’s on your list?
