I'm a frequent visitor to the Lululemon blog. For those of you uninitiated, Lululemon is a yoga/running/dance/athletic clothing store whose impact goes beyond clothing. They make a point to serve the communities where their stores are located and have very positive, inspirational corporate values. While I can't afford a stitch of their clothing (and don't believe that their $98 racer back top will get me into a handstand any more gracefully than my Target top), I really do think that many of their mantras have a lot of value (examples: "Dance, Sing Floss and Travel!", "Mediocre is as close to the bottom as it is to the top, and will give you a lousy life.").

On one particular blog recently I read about a lady writing down and achieving her dreams in New York. It just so happens that I have been meaning to do this for a long time. I wrote down my 1, 5 and 10 year goals. I came up with about six for each category and hope that these will inspire me to achieve these and add more.

2.       Join a volunteer organization (and stick with it)
3.       Run a half marathon
4.       Do a yoga handstand
5.       Do something new every day and blog about it
6.       Practice writing in an effort towards writing the book I will publish within 10 years

Five Years
1.       Move away from Atlanta
2.       Do a road trip through the American West
3.       Run a marathon
4.       Become a certified yoga teacher
5.       Find my career passion
6.       Make over $70,000 a year

Ten Years
1.       Spend a year abroad
2.       Be proficient in French
3.       Write a book and have it published
