  1. Cat,
    This post really speaks to me. It focuses on a lifetime of living and doing it right. It is a keeper.

    1. So happy you enjoyed it, Mere...I agree, definitely a keeper.

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

  2. I love this Cat, what an awesome list! Not sure how many of these I can tick off. Thank you for sharing :)


    1. Happy you enjoyed it, Roz...I look at this as more a list of suggestions rather than requirements. ;)

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

  3. Hi, Cat,
    Very good thoughts in this list. Not sure if I would be willing to have them all checked off before I'm 50 though.

    1. Happy you enjoy them, Baker...don't think it's a race...more just a suggested journey. ;)

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

  4. Hi Cat. I have ticked off some of these but sadly will never do them all.
    love Jan, xx

    1. Do what you feel comfortable with, sure you have or will tick off those that are important to you. :)

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

  5. A wonderful list...have some of these under my to get to the others.
    hugs abby

    1. Happy you enjoyed it, Abby...hope you are able to accomplish all those that are important to you.

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

  6. Did love this wisdom, Cat. Thanks for sharing. Always smile when someone talks about a "sound track" to his or her life.

    Hugs From Ella

    1. I wish I had a soundtrack for my life..especially that warning music when something bad or scary was going on. I do have those songs that when they come on the radio, I crank them up and sing at the top of my lungs. Also have those which take me back to a particular time. :)

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

  7. Thank you Cat, I will strive to tick them all off. I have 30 years! 😆

    1. You have a long time to go, Daisy...remember to tick off those you want to accomplish and don't worry about the others. ;)

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

    2. Yes deffinately!
      Some are very intriguing

    1. You're welcome, Bleue...happy you enjoyed it.

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

  9. For those of you reading that are under 50 - take this advice you won't regret it; for those of you over 50 - start again. Granted there are things that you'll do differently but they'll make you feel young again.
    #30 is hard to do sometimes because in your hear you're still 25
    #12 was a ridiculously expensive paid of red open toed sling backs with heels so high I could barely walk in them but they made me feel like a million dollars even if my feet hurt like hell.
    This was great Cat, thanks for sharing.

    1. Great advice, Sunny! I agree with everything you said. Do you still have that pair of sling backs? I have several pair that I don't wear if I'm gonna be walking or even standing thinking of getting a lovely display box to put them in. Makes me feel good just looking at them and remembering. Happy you enjoyed reading these. ;)

      Hugs and blessings...Cat

  10. What a wonderful list of ideas to strive for in life. I will keep this to look back on - there are several I would like to check off that I have not already... Thanks :-) Hugs
