Call for Participants: ALIVE Lists

You may have noticed the "ALIVE" tab up top. Maybe you've clicked on it. This post is to serve as the initial post that will explain it a bit more. Right now this is in the very early stages, but I need some participants before moving forward! I'm hoping this will be something big! And who wouldn't want to be part of the beginning phases of something big?!!

ALIVE List: What is ALIVE?

ALIVE is more than your typical “Bucket List.” It adopts the life to-do list concept, but takes a different perspective. Rather than counting down and checking off items until you meet your ultimate demise, it’s about celebrating the fact that you’re ALIVE and accomplishing those experiences. It’s about creating and maintaining a list, accomplishing experiences, and documenting. The documenting part is key in celebrating and remembering all of your experiences!

Have I grabbed your attention yet? Want to participate? It’s easy! I’ve created a few tools to help get you started and navigate the process.

ALIVE List: Documenting (Coming Soon!)


Most of all, I want you to share your experiences! I would LOVE guest posts from ALIVE participants that document an experience being checked off. Maybe you want to devote an entire (or even part of a) blog to ALIVE, that’s great too! Every Monday I want to share a list from ALIVE participants. I’ll also share my own list, accomplishments, and any resources I can provide to help you along the way.
