Reminders and Self Fulfilling Prophecies

Today, I am particularly thankful for reminders and self fulfilling prophecies.

I love yellow Post-It notes.  I probably use them way more than I should.  When I tripped across my life’s purpose back in 1999, I wrote it on a yellow Post-It and have carried it around with me ever since.


As I was looking forward to the new year, I remembered another yellow square that I’ve had for some time.  About six years ago,  I jotted down a list of things that I really want to do in my life.  It’s different from a bucket list because it’s a short list of fundamental must-dos.


I’m planning to accomplish three things on the list this year.  I’ve come to realize that if I don’t accomplish the other three things, I’ll be just fine.

I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for me.  It promises to be an exciting time.

What are planning to accomplish this year?


This is a list of my top six goals in life.  I keep this post-it note on my laptop and have had it for some time now.  It’s lost its stickiness, but for some reason I’ve held on to this instead of creating a new one.

Somewhere along the line, I stopped believing that any of these things could ever be possible and then yesterday, something clicked.  I told someone that I really wanted to go to Greece and in that moment, it seemed very possible.  Now I’m completely focused on making it happen.

Today I’m thankful for the click.
