    I made a similar list many many years ago after watching an Oprah show where author Joe Kita was talking about his new book “Anther Shot”. I’m not sure if it’s up your alley to read something like that (or if you want to add it to your already pending list). I found it to be a very easy read and it was inspiring to me. I made my list before reading the book and I have found that the 18 thngs that I blurted out with little to no thinking in those few minutes of commercials have remained constant. Since writing that list I haven’t added any more. That must mean something. Maybe you’ll only end up with 43….
