Before I Die

On a random afternoon in London I came across a chalkboard wall in Borough titled Before I die…

The idea was for people to take a piece of chalk and write a few words declaring one thing they wish to achieve before they die.

There was everything on there, both tangible and abstract such as ‘happiness’ and ‘own my own home’

Its difficult to pick just one top thing you would like to achieve in your lifetime but I would like to pick one milestone; something monumental to me, to achieve this year, and see where that takes me.

So, my goal for this year is to save enough for a deposit on a house. Even if that’s not what I use it for; I’m still undecided but I want the option.

It will take a lot of sacrifice, and that’s part of the challenge. My self discipline needs work so this will be my way of exercising that. Through denying my immediate gratification (shopping) I hope to strengthen the chances of achieving my long term goals.
