Life List, Cymplified!

life list

I have been thinking a lot about what I want to achieve in my lifetime. Some people call this the bucket list, some people call this the life list, one girl called it the mighty life list (she actually built a community around making life lists, helping others create one and work towards checking the items off).

I confess that I am a person with nary a plan for her life. It’s true! I didn’t even plan to get married and now I have a family of my own. Now that I am more mature, I feel the need for direction. I know that God is orchestrating the purpose of my life. And what better time to list down my life goals than on my birthday/birth month, right?

With that said, here is my life list in no particular order and with the ones already crossed out at the top.

  1. Get married to a cute, Christian, Chinese guy 10.2006Β  πŸ˜€
  2. Have two children, one boy and one girl 07.2007, 07.2010, 09.2011Β God gave us three kids πŸ™‚

    I love the line, “God is orchestrating the purpose of my life.” And it is through praying and reading of the Bible that this purpose is revealed to us. Blessed birthday, Ceemee and I too would like to experience the four seasons especially the lovely sakura! πŸ™‚
