Twice I have tried to do a 101 things to do in 1001 days list. It is supposed to bring you accomplishment by knowing that at least you completed SOME thing on the list. This list is actually kind of disappointing. With anxiety and depression, making goals that you want very much, and not seeing them completed, often due to stressing over these goals through personal limitations, is just awful. 
So I am going to do two things, 

1. Look over my past list, cross out what I have finished. and then discard it from my goals.

2. Make a new 101 things in 1001 days, with simple, reasonable goals. 

The challenge will be choosing what is ‘reasonable’ to me, but i’ll give’r a go.

Where Am I?
