Today is my birthday and I have one question – why wait until a round number to celebrate in a big way?  If it ends in a five or a zero, we tend to make a big deal of it.  My thought, you’re only 48 once so I might as well live it up!

My birthday challenge to myself is #48in 48.  Below is a list of 48 very doable items.  I plan on doing those 48 things 48 times in my 48th year.  And yes, before you even ask, I have a tracking sheet to hold myself accountable.  AND there are a lot of positive things on that list.  I am trying to put more happy into a dark world right now….

Also – no groaning.  I will not post all of them on Facebook. I will spread them out across FB, Instagram, Twitter and (mainly) my Blog.  I am picking up a journal to hard-chronicle my adventure.
