Are you the kind of person who writes lists? I definitely am! I write lists for EVERYTHING. I get teased by some of my friends for it sometimes because they think I'm a little crazy! But I can't help it; I just LOVE a nice, organized list! They make me feel warm and fuzzy inside :) can anyone relate??
My list ranges from the more time consuming goals to totally random little things that I just know I HAVE to do at some point in my life!
For example: 'Learn Spanish', and 'Go Parasailing, followed by 'See a movie in the theater alone'. All of these made the list.
So for this first post on "My List", I will tell you about a little item which I checked off just this last week. That was, "Randomly jump in the ocean in my clothes". Kinda hard to plan a random event though, right? Yeah. But it was on my list! So I did not plan it.
I was working at a house under construction all day in the heat, so I was literally dripping with sweat, like clothes soaked. Blech. I started to head home at the end of the day, when I just had the thought that the most amazing feeling right now would be to jump into a nice, cold pool.... or ocean!! Aha! Random! Before I could talk myself out of it I turned my car around and headed to the beach. Don't think about being covered in sand, or soaking wet without a towel or change of clothes! Just go! I parked my car at Sunset Beach, jumped out and ran down to the water before I could talk myself out it. Dropping my shoes, phone and keys on the sand, I ran into the water and straight into the waves! It was quite exhilarating! And felt sooo good.Dripping wet, with pockets, shorts and undergarments FULL of sand, I went back to the car and made my way home, feeling quite please with my accomplishment (not to mention very refreshed).
My question for you is: How often do you do spontaneous, silly or totally random things just for the sheer fun of it? Remember: YOLO! You. Only. Live. Once. So... what's on your list??
