Lifelist: a hundred crazy things I decided to do

Lifelist: a hundred crazy things I decided to do

“It’s better to do it and regret it than not to do it and regret it for the rest of your life”. It is a simple truth, but it just so happens that I haven’t always followed it.

Now I am 30 years old, and I realize that there are a lot of things in this world that I have never tried, or not done consciously enough. Somewhere I was let down by my modesty, on occasion I didn’t have the opportunity, sometimes I was sorry for money and time, and sometimes I just wasn’t in the mood. In general, I always found an excuse to avoid some crazy things or pleasant hobbies that my friends were into. So one day, when everyday life once again started whispering in my ear that something needed to change, I decided to make a change.

I made a list of 100 things to implement in the near future.

100 crazy ideas I’m going to do to make my life more interesting
