my second mission101 list starts today --more or less

As I mentioned yesterday, I want to start fresh and kind of go a different way with this. Some, a few, of the items on my new list are actual tasks, but the majority are, to my mind, life goals, changing the way I live from day to day. None are earth-shattering, still, if I can complete most of these in the time I've allotted myself, I think bad habits will be changed to the better.

While my family is, as always, a part of this, Lauren especially, I'm changing my icon

from    to    so as to better represent the 'me'ness' of this list.
