An inspiration to this project was
by John Goddard and his own life list.

I believe that sorrows, problems in life are partialy caused by lack of dreams, wishes, aims and goals and by the lack of challanges. My aim is to build the place where people will gain inspiration themselves with their goals and its realisation. I believe that the challanges and life aims of living happily and to die feeling that life was beautiful and fulfilled will be achieved. These typy of goals and wishes you can see at the links which are on the right hand side of this page. Why not write your own ones and have the link to your web site with the others. Last year I went kayaking for 9 days with 200 other people on the Brda River, where in 1953 John Paul II went kayaking too. After this camp I had a dream to kayak along more 4 rivers or more in Poland. This is something that inspires to get up from bed. It does not matter whether someone is 4 or 104. Dreams are to dream. Everyone can dream. Age is not important. Life is to realize your dreams. Make your own list and share it with others. Make your web site or your blog and the address attach in the comments. I believe that lots of people will be inspired, that they might find new friends that"My Life List"spread the world. I wish You lots of courage and to fulfill your dreams.
To make this type of the list it takes time buthaving your own list you may fall asleep and you may dream about your goals. You may wake up and you may know that there will be adventures and wonderful times ahead.
John's list has 127 goals. He has achieved 109 of them so far. One of his dreams was to land on the moon which he is still to achieve. He said that maybe one day he will go if God will allow him to do so. The most important thing is that when he goes to sleep and than wakes up there are still dreams to dream.
John aimed 127 goals. You can start with one or two or any you can think of. Later you can add more. I have written 9 so far. The easiest is to do it on the blog. It does not cost and is easy to do so. Take a look at mine and others and lets rock and roll. ...............................
"Life is not a generation scene. Life is the presentation. Life is an adventure for couragious"

"The Bucket List"
This is the movie which talks about the same issue. What's more, there ate two famous people playing Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.
I made my list. It is not so easy to do it. I must say that Andy Crowe made the best list of life.
It is great adventure and attitude of life when you are making such a list.

Morgan asked two questions:
Did you find happiness and joy in your life?
Did you make other people happy?


I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained or the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the ‘good’ living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.
I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn’t show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, “Later. Now go get washed up for dinner."There would have been more “I love you’s.” More “I’m sorry’s.”
But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute, look at it and really see it , live it and never give it back.

Tom---thought of you & your life list when I read this quote. It is from a book that I think you might enjoy~

Walk in the rain, jump in mud puddles, collect rocks, rainbows and roses, smell flowers, blow bubbles, stop along the way, build sandcastles, say hello to everyone, go barefoot, go on adventures, act silly, fly kites, have a merry heart, talk with animals, sing in the shower, read childrens' books, take bubble baths, get new sneakers, hold hands and hug and kiss, dance, laugh and cry for the health of it, wonder and wander around, feel happy and precious and innocent, feel scared, feel sad, feel mad, give up worry and guilt and shame, say yes, say no, say the magic words, ask lots of questions, ride bicycles, draw and paint, see things differently, fall down and get up again, look at the sky, watch the sun rise and sun set, watch clouds and name their shapes, watch the moon and stars come out, trust the universe, stay up late, climb trees, daydream, do nothing and do it very well, learn new stuff, be excited about everything, be a clown, enjoy having a body, listen to music, find out how things work, make up new rules, tell stories, save the world, make friends with the other kids on the block, and do anything else that brings more happiness, celebration, health, love, joy, creativity, pleasure, abundance, grace, self-esteem, courage, balance, spontaneity, passion, beauty, peace, relaxation, communication and life energy to...all living beings on this planet.
