The List

The other day, Corey and I were driving in the car talking about taking scuba lessons.  Since we have been married, Corey has tried to convince me to do this, but I keep putting it off.  I am not going to lie, the thought of diving under water scares me to death.  But as we talked in the car, I realized the thing that scares me the most is not being able to do it.  I am more afraid that I will be terrible and/or quit before finishing.

So that conversation led me to write down the things I am scared to try, which led me to write down things I keep putting off, which led me to things I just want to do, which led to MY LIST.

Our time here on earth is too short, and I am tired of wasting my days away on Facebook and in front of the TV watching re-runs.

So for whatever reason, I keep putting things off in my life, and I figured if I post them here for all of you to read, you can help hold me accountable. I would love for each of you to write your own lists and share them here.
