So far, in my lifetime....

I came across this on another website and it was really a cool way to appreciate not only where you've been in your life and what you've already done, but where you still have to go. Don't just include the good stuff - both good and bad experiences can make a positive mark on your life.

So Far In My Lifetime.....

1. I've snorkeled on the island of Kauia and almost swam into an eel.

2. I've endured almost 24 hours of labor with no pain killers at all.

3. I've been attacked by a drunk guy at a 5-star hotel.

4. I've held a newborn baby in my arms - my own - and felt more love for another human being than I've ever felt in my life.

5. Been in a city filled with over a million people yet never felt so alone.

6. Went on a breathtaking three-day canoe trip through Southern Canada.

7. Been bit by a snake, twice.

8. Jumped off a super high cliff on a dare.

9. Had my heart broken so badly that I thought I'd never be happy again.

10. Broke someone else's heart and still feel bad about it.

11. Hugged a boa constrictor named David Bowie Constrictor.

12. Went on a roller coaster on the top of a 100-story hotel in Las Vegas.

13. Got straight A's and was the only person in my class to receive the highest award for all subjects in business college.

14. Have come to accept that I might not ever have another child, and am okay with it.

15. Had my tongue pierced.

So Far in my life

1. I've ridden horses bareback on beaches and in woods.

2. I've shocked 20 men by jumping into a back hoe and moving logs expertly.

3. I've gone camping on my own and made peace with my solitary presence.

4. I've scuba dived some magnificent places.

5. I've held the hand and stroked the hair of those whose life was ending that very moment.

6. I've held the tiny body of two babies within seconds of their birth. My tiny babies.

7. I've stood my ground and won against the odds.

8. I've kept us warm with fire for three winters.

9. I've lived with shame and embarrasment and fear.

10. I've had a love that the great poets try to describe.

11. I've suffered heartbreak that I wonder if I will ever live past.

12. I've been on a date where I know I was only an accessory, like a bracelet to show what a man he was.

13. I've put myself through college and then put myself through university as a single mother.

14. I've lived in the middle of nowhere surrounded by nature and thrived.

15. I've rock climbed.

1. I've captured people with a pencil, pens, pastels, and paintbrushes.

2. I've put something on lined paper that made someone cry.

3. I spent 2 and a half years in Japan resenting I was there.

4. I've spent a combined 3 weeks in London, England and know the next time I go back, it's gonna be a little while before I ever come back home.

5. I've watched someone tear up as I was singing to them, and for all the right reasons.

6. I've had my heart broken by a church.

7. I've lived more of my life more for Jesus than I have for me.

8. I played the role of my favorite actress in my favorite movie (Sally Field's M'Lynn in Steel Magnolias) and made a grown man cry.

9. I spent a year of my life writing haiku in a journal that's hiding in my basement (before there was ever any ZeFrank bb).

10. I've spent nearly 24 years of my life as Queen of the Kissless Mountain - and think I may likely spend the next 24 years continuing the tradition.

11. I predicted my sister's marriage when I first met Trevor (and she hadn't even met him yet), and also predicted my sister was pregnant.

12. I've been rejected by more men than God.

13. I've read the Bible about 5 times, cover to cover, and it never fails to be the most moving thing in my life.

14. _______________________________ (saving this one for when I've finally finished losing the weight)

15. I've paid off all my debts except my car, which I'm well on my way to paying off...then maybe art school in England, a house in Old Towne Bellevue, or my own coffee shop.
