LEVEL UP

The future? What does it hold, where will it bring us? How will we get there? What will aide us in our journey? How will we be defined by the moments leading up to our successes and failures? All of these questions should be asked of ourselves. We owe ourselves a life fulfilled, not one sitting down and taking life as it comes for them, but rather being a pathfinder and exploring their own destination. I say that with the utmost confidence because I used to be that person who was just living in the laze, going through the motions, and not living life to it’s fullest. The story of that journey is found in the “All My Progress” page, but I wanted a page dedicated to where I am going, it only seems appropriate to have a page dedicated to where I have been, what I am doing (the main blog), and the future. Listed below, categorically, and maybe even a little intensely are my goals for my life. I will add and subtract as time goes on, things draw closer. The spirit of this list comes from http://www.nerdfitness.com where the author of the site “levels up” his life by reaching milestones. A lot of his are travel-based, mine will be any and all. It is good to write these things out, they become tangible and realistic, or show you how outrageous you want your life to be, either way, here’s my leveling up list ::
