Hey Amazing Souls!
This week is the week of my 36th Birthday and I am working on a 36 while 36 list, but it may not be revealed until next week as I have not finalized it yet, I have been gathering ideas and inspo about it but have not decided fully on all the things to go on that list!
In the meantime I am going to post the results of my 35 while 35 list, there are some things that did not get done just don’t seem to make the time for them, fear being too big a factor or have changed my mind. But there are a decent number checked off and some important ones so it all evens out I suppose. Instead of being mad at myself for what I did not get done I am going to focus on what I did and to take that and mindfully complete the items for my 36 list!
I swear evey year goes by faster and faster, Several things are so different from where they were a year ago, some really good some I am still trying to learn the lesson or see the blessing!

9-Be 25+ lbs lighter! – I am happy to report that I have lost about 28lbs to be honest part of it was that I was having some big health issues for a bit, but those seem to be much better and most of it appears to have come off from changes in my diet so that is good..

12-Take Remains of the Day class – Maybe next year, never did get around to it!
13-Have my apartment fully organized, umm if I don’t get to it this year finally you will never see it on my list again!— Well this one is close to done but I did realize I was really more about decluttering, then organizing then decorating so this one is good progress really good but not totally done and that is OK
