When I finished my first list, I realized there were more things I wanted to include, so I made a second list.
It is nice to reminisce about the big and small, the fun, the accomplishing, and the brave things I have done in my life. There are many of these that I had forgotten about or rarely think about up until I started proactively thinking about points to add to the list. Even if you haven’t traveled far, I am sure many of you can sit down and think about many things you have overcome or felt proud of in your life, even if it was a small thing in the eyes of others. I invite you to make your own list and do it either privately or share it.

1. Hiked up a snowy mountain.
2. Sold all my possessions except for a full big suitcase and moved across the world.
