Coffee with a List: 101 Goals in 1001 Days

Dedicated to the five girls I met at my local Dunkin’ Donuts yesterday who told me they were fans of Coffee at Kayla’s. Ainsley, Mariah, Jude, Nikki, and Sara, your words really meant a lot and definitely gave me motivation to write again. Thank you.

Carpe diem; seize the day.

One hundred and one activities I want to accomplish in one thousand and one days; it’s a pretty simple concept. So what is it that makes this challenge/list different from a bucket list? 

The deadline for a bucket list is usually one’s own death; this list’s deadline is 1,001 days from the start. Personally, I feel like 101 in 1,001 days has the ability to inspire individuals to go out and make things happen for themselves immediately.  

My 101 in 1,001 days consist of events and activities I would enjoy partaking in, people I love to surround myself with, and dreams and goals being met. It will be updated on a monthly basis, allowing for some of the events met to be blogged about. 

This list is not here to take importance of your life; it’s here to make sure you’re living your life out to its fullest…enjoying every single second of the way as you continue to grow in ways you can only imagine. 

So without further ado, here is my 101 in 1,001 days.
