The Conclusion to My 101 in 1001 List!

Wow. That is all I can fathom saying right now! If you have been following Faith & Fancy since 2016 then you know what this post is about to be about. If not, head to this post, read it, and then head back here - it will all make a lot more sense!

I cannot begin to believe that 2.75 years have gone by, or 1001 days, since I first shared my very ambitious 101 in 1001 List. I know it's cliche, but where does the time go!? Seriously. I still feel like it was yesterday that I was dreaming up all the things I wanted to do in almost three years time. I still vividly remember creating that list, and here we are at the completion of it. Crazy.

Over the past few years, I have given updates here and there on my progress, but I am excited today to review the whole thing for one last time. I say one last time loosely, because I don't plan on this being my last 101 in 1001 list, but instead the first of many. Creating a 101 in 1001 list isn't just a fun thing to do (although it is!), but it's also a way to keep track of all the things you want to accomplish no matter how big or small they might be. It truly is so motivating and inspiring to have them all listed out in one place!

So here we go! Here are all the things I've accomplished in the past 1001 days!

Overall I accomplished 41 out of the 101 things on my list! Just a little bit shy of crossing half the items off the list. It might not seem like a lot, but I am still proud to have accomplished anything on my list. At the end of the day it is still 41 more things than if I hadn't created the list at all! 

Creating this final post is leaving me more inspired than ever to create a second 101 in 1001 list! I would love for you to join me. Who's in!?
