  1. Awesome job, Chelia! Best of luck on completing the list. Don’t rush yourself; good things take time 😊 Having a long/short term list of things to do is soooo motivating and encouraging for anyone! I should make one for myself.

I am looking forward to following you and reading more!!!

  3. I don’t know about you but in most cases to do list is like a curse for me.. so if I don’t make a to do list, things will get done but if I make one, most likely it will never happen! 😱😹
