101 Things in 1001 Days V3

101 in 1001 Days V3

So here it is, my latest list of 101 Things to Do in 1001 Days.

Now this isn’t my first rodeo or my first list, if you’ve been around a while, you might remember my original list and Version 2 which I reviewed just last week. 

I won’t lie, the more lists you make, the more difficult it is to come up with new ideas which is why friends, you’ll see some repeat offenders from my first and second lists because being the eternal optimist, I’m working on the premise of third time lucky. 

This time round, I’ve tried to set goals around a number of themes and I must thank Teddy Roosevelt for adding some pawsomeness to the mix! Not known for my patience and almost famous for my enthusiasm, I of course, kicked off this list on 1 October because there’s nothing better than a new month to kick start a new list! 

Of course, I’d love to tick off everything on this list but for me, this challenge isn’t about how many things I do in 1001 days, it’s about how much fun I have doing it. My time will be up on June 28, 2022 but in the words of the great Muhammad Ali, I won’t count the days, I’ll make the days count!
