Before I Die….

In Over The Rhine, Ohio there’s a chalk mural where people who visit the spot can write what they want to do before they die. There were silly things that said: before I die I want to do crap. But there were some pretty inspiring things on there too such as: before I die I want to travel the world. I think it is so important to have goals or a checklist that brings you one step closer to where you want to be or who you want to be. While I do think that you should strive to cross off everything on your list, it is okay if you don’t. The point of creating one is to see all the things you want to do, and what you can do. The point is to accomplish as many tasks or goals on your list as you can. So I thought I would share with you a list of things I want to do before I die.
