Reaching Big Goals

On September 11, 2022 Amanda reached a BIG goal, making it to all 50 states!  Realizing she had already made it to 28 states in 2016 she started actively trying to get to the rest. The rules for being in a state are that airports or just crossing the border doesn’t count, you actually have to “see” the state.

This has been a fun goal, but it has also been a challenge. To not buy or participate in some things because you are saving for a trip, to get the most out of a place you might not have ever thought to visit, and it can be easy to give up on those things you just want to do for fun.

But it was so worth it!

The sense of accomplishment, the things you get to see and experience, the people you meet, what you learn about the world and yourself.

There is something special about finishing this goal on Sept.11th. You may have seen the Facebook post going around about how the 2,996 people got up that morning not knowing it would be their last and we should never take tomorrow for granted.

Life is happening now. The stories you will share are being lived now!

What is your BIG goal?
