Yes, amazingly, it's only eight weeks today to my birthday. I love my birthday, I love doing lots of special things - so much so, that it's impossible to fit everything into just one day. My birthday celebrations, over the years have expanded into a week and then a month. I like to start planning in January so that I can savour every moment.
With "only" eight weeks to go, I've made a special entry in my journal - an eight week challenge - to do 54 things before I'm 55. I usually write a list for the year of what I want to achieve in that year, I've mostly completed the 54 things I wanted to do when I was 54. Now with "only" eight weeks to go, I've come up with a supplementary list, of smaller tasks and treats.
One of the problems of getting older (besides the obvious ones) is that each year you have to try to think of extra challenges to make up the numbers - I might struggle to think of 87 things to do when I'm 87, but I'll worry about that nearer the time.
For now I've written out my 54 things to do before I'm 55, but I had to add flaps to the pages to fit them all in.
Some of the challenges aren't challenges at all, some will be easy to do, others may be more interesting to complete, but the point is, that it will be fun.
Maybe as part of this challenge I should have added - think of a list of 55 things to do when you're 55!!!
