List of Lists

I am a listmaker. I have been for as long as I can remember. Even when everything else seems really crazy and hectic, I feel somehow centered by making a list. I have been inspired by a couple of other blogs to create a list of lists. A go-to menu of lists, if you will. The items on my list of lists are a combination of brain exercises (how many presidents can you list?), soul seeking reflections, and lists just for fun. You can complete them in any particular order, and there are just enough to complete one each week for a year if you want. Are there any other list makers out there?

My List of Lists:

1.) Things that make you calm
2.) Your favorite childhood books
3.) Things to do in your backyard (activities - not chores)
4.) Household projects you want to complete
5.) New restaurants you want to try
6.) Date ideas
7.) Free family outing ideas
8.) Things that feel like fall
9.) Christmas traditions
10.) Movies you want to see
11.) A history of your favorite t.v. shows
12.) Things that remind you of your family
13.) Ways you can save money and/or reduce your carbon footprint
14.) Summer bucket list
15.) Your guilty pleasures
