41 By 41

So the calendar caught up to me and I found the dial on my age turn over a decade.  It's possible that I've lived half or less than half my life already.  My brother didn't make it past 40 and my mom to 55.  Granted I'm not blood related but one never knows.

In the months leading up to my 40th, I played around with the idea of some goals before I hit 40.  I never really solidified any of them and this winter was deep and cold so motivation was low.  Instead, I'm turning
my 40th year into a year of rebooting, of change.  I have a list of 41 things to accomplish before I'm 41. So here it is:
