    You are inspiring me to make a 40 by 40 list for myself. I might keep it to myself. Maybe I will freak out less when I turn 40 next year? I love your list!

      Yes! Please make a list!
      I don’t know you, but I know you have accomplished a lot in your life, and there is no reason to freak out about 40 (since the under 30 woman haha). The list just makes the year extra special and full of satisfaction.
      I made sure my list had plenty of “stretch” goals and other goals I have done before and know I can do again easily. The list isn’t something you should stress about.
