Put it out there

As we know, the law of attraction brings us what we send the Universe, be it excitement, positivity, complacency, or negativity or 'victimism'. Just over 3 years ago I put my list of goals before I die out there into the Universe through my intent, saying it out loud, and sharing it with those I'd hoped to inspire through such a tool. Here's the result below, and remember - it's not about me, it's about sharing tools that work and showing what's possible through the example...
