Welcome to a new series on my blog! I've always been a bit of a list addict. I feel a million times more peaceful and content with myself when I've got a few lists going, from what I need to do today to my favorite r&b songs from 2002. I love lists! So I thought it would be fun to start a series on my blog for 2013 that focuses on List making, lists for fun, lists for self discovery, you name it. And it's all about participation! Each week I'll have a new list prompt for you to download. I think it could be really fun to print out a page each week, collect them through the year and then bind them together at the end of the year as a little memento of 2013.
So this week, the list prompt is List the Words That Touch Your Soul. This list prompt was taken from the book List Yourself. I really liked this as our first list because it starts us off on a positive and reflective note as we begin our list making journey. It was fun for me to read through the words I wrote down, reflecting on why those words are important to me. It seems the words that I am most drawn to are more about my singular world and personal experiences. Maybe because I am an eldest child or because I feel like I grew up and took care of myself at a young age, maybe because I am such an introvert, I don't find a lot of need in others to find my happiness and contentment. I prefer a LOT of alone time, a few very close relationships, a lot of time to reflect and meditate on my experiences and thoughts, and a lot of quiet time. I think a lot of the elements that make up who I am ended up in the list along with words that help challenge me to get outside of myself.
Please feel free to download a PDF of Week 1 of 52 Lists above. You can print out the page and get to work jotting down the words that touch your soul, inspire you, and remind you of who you are. And feel free to post your lists on your blog, linking back to my blog. I'd love to follow along with your year of list making too! Feel freel to leave a link to your lists in the comments so I can check them out or link up your post below. Each week when I post about 52 Lists, you can come back to the post and link up your own post so that we can all explore each others lists. You are not required, it's just a fun way to check out each other's lists.
