That's a great list! There is a lot of positivity and self-awareness in it. I will be turning 45 next month, so maybe I will do a list too.

28. Whatever it is, say it before it is too late.
29. Whatever it is, do it before it is too late.

Thank you both very much. I've learned a lot about myself since I started blogging, and I love getting reader comments.
