2020 Vision – My List of 100 Dreams

a list of 100 dreams or bucket list

At the start of the new year (when we were all still thinking 2020 was going to be ‘our year’), I decided to organize and host a 2020 vision board party for the very first time. 

As part of the pre-work before attending the party, I asked the attendees to brainstorm 100 dreams for their life. For many of us, our dreams have laid dormant in our hearts. We often put our dreams on hold and don’t take the time to invest in ourselves. The purpose of the exercise was to revive the dreams that have died or give permission to dream big — possibly for the first time. 

Your list of ‘100 dreams’ does not have to be extravagant. The dreams can be places you want to visit, books you want to read, foods you want to eat, places you want to volunteer, charities you want to bless financially, and on and on!

I tried to dial back on my dreams in the travel department because literally, my entire list could be places I want to travel to. Around dream 60 I started to run out of steam and – you’ll quickly notice – I still have nine dreams left to write. The point is to take time to actually put some thought behind the dreams in your heart!

If you just want to creep through my list, and judge my dreams, read on!
