Fulfillment and joy. Not the holiday kind.

21 Ways Jim And Pam Ruined All Other Relationships For You

And because they made you believe in soul mates again.


You have to appreciate a good love story. And this one is great in it’s simplicity.

Love The Office.


 Sean and I were talking tonight about fulfillment.  Things that would give you a sense of achievement. They range, for me, from a simple task to Mount Everest. Yes, Seriously.

  1. I want to climb Mt Everest.
  2. I want to go to college
  3. I want to do a pullup.  If I can do one, I’d like to do ten but hey…we’re not going to be greedy now.
  4. I want to be that person that has dinner on the table every night…whether you eat it or not, I did my job.
  5. I want to get all the tasks done so I don’t feel guilty if I see you putting laundry in.
  6. I want to be able to do the splits.
  7. I want to see more of the world. THAT list is way too long.
  8. I want to watch all the classic movies.
  9. I want to watch all the award winning television shows that I’ve just been too busy or blind to see.
  10. There’s no time to read every book I want to read. But I want that.
  11. I want to run an ultramarathon (shout out to you, Michelle!)
  12. I  want to get in such good shape I no longer question what I’m not doing that I could or should be to get in better shape.
  13. I want to dance. A lot.  And learn the proper way to do it.
  14. I want to sing.
  15. I want to go on a mission trip.
  16. I want to volunteer.  Somewhere that I’m actually needed.
  17. I want my blog to be just popular enough that I can feel justified in my insanity but not so popular that people are internet mean.  I would like the Goldilocks of blogs. Yes, Please.
  18. I want to write a book. Hm…doesn’t everybody?
  19. years ago I told Alex I would run 13 marathons. I don’t know if I’m going to but I want to try. Just finished #5 with NY
  20. I want to run an international marathon
  21. I want to run on the Great Wall of China…the marathon is pretty killer so maybe the 10k!  LOL
  22. I want to remember each friend and why I love them and send them notes and packages to pass on the love
  23. I want to finish my scrapbooks
  24. I want to finish the projects I started and never seem to have time
  25. I want everyone in my family to be happy and fulfilled.

I ask a lot…

I know this is a realistic/out of my mind list. But it took me about a minute and a half to type up so it’s really just all the things I want in life.

Note: This is a partial list.  I can’t finish it right now but I’ll be thinking about it.


Run on…

  1. Love this post! And love the list. There are so many things on here that you totally can (and will!) do 🙂 (and so many that I would have on my own list!)

    1. I love lists. And at the age of 47 I should maybe get busy. Yikes. #timepassingtoofast #oneleginthegrave
