#52ListsProject - Mood-Boosting Songs

I mentioned in a previous post that I purchased the book, THE 52 LISTS PROJECT. It's a book that focuses on weekly journaling based on lists.  I love making lists and thought this sounded like a great way to remember a year.

I purchased the book for my 43rd birthday and decided I would do a list every week for this year. Even though the journal begins in Winter with Week 1, I started my list during Fall with Week 40. So, I'll be moving through the book a bit backwards, which is hard for my organized brain, but I didn't want to be writing about winter topics in spring or summer in winter.

I'll be sharing my lists here, hopefully one a week. My first list is already a week behind. It's the story of my life right now and I'm just rolling with it. I seem to be behind on a lot of things right now. Maybe I should make a list of all of the things I'm behind on......or not!

I thought that sharing these lists might help you get to know me a bit better and make me a little more accountable to actually getting this done each week. Since I am behind, I'll likely have two lists to share this week.

Some weeks the topics may be too personal to share completely on here, but I'll at least tell you about the lists and some of the things on it. At the end of each list, the author offers an idea to expand on that week's list. For example, this week it suggests making a playlist of all the songs you listed. I'm in the process of creating that!

So, for my first list of the year, I'm starting with List 40...

What a fun way to journal. I love listening to LCD Soundsystem, especially when I walk.
