  2. Thanks for this. Really cool stuff you are sharing here.

  3. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

  4. I travel extensively thruout latin America and find most places to be fine as long as you travel smart…blend in as much as possible…no wearing expensive jewelry or watches (or even fakes that might look expensive)…no goiong out partying all night and tryin to find your hotel dead drunk or going home with that hottie you just met…no flashing wads of money or piles of credit cards…Just use common sense and you will be fine…enjoy learn and hopefully make some new friends.

  5. Thumbs up for this!

  6. Hello this is amazing site! really cool and it will be a new inspirations for me

  7. Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

  8. I’m so thrilled with the new search of your weblog. Gratitude so a lot for keeping it running!

  9. I’ve gone ahead and bookmarked at so my friends can see it too. I simply used List of 101 Dreams | as the entry title in my bookmark, as I figured if it is good enough for you to title your blog post that way, then you probably would like to see it bookmarked the same way.

  10. Im not that much of a reader to be honest but your sites pretty good, keep it up as I will bookmark ready for my next read

    Hello Marci! :)

    I’m a fresh college graduate and still searching for a job but in spite of that, I’m not losing hope that I will find it soon and also because of my faith in God. Everyday, I always inspire myself that nothing is impossible if you just believe and work hard on the process.

    I have so many plans in my life especially traveling to my favorite places and make my family happy through my own effort. Your stories inspire me more and no wonder why most of your goals came true because you have a positive outlook of life. Thank you:) God bless! :)

  15. Very interesting article, often look in on your blog, but recently noticed that the less you put the posts. Waiting for further interesting information:)

    • Thank you for your comment. There will be many more posts and many changes coming to the site in future months. There will also be a challenge in 2012 with prizes for the person who goes after their biggest dream and achieves it in one year. I hope you continue to follow the blog and go after your own dreams.

  16. Of all the things you’ve mentioned I coudn’t find any that I wouldn’t agree with:)

  17. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this superb blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  18. Wow…I just ran into this web site by accident. I love your positive outlook outlook in life and how you inspire me to create a bucket list for myself. I hope to continue to follow your blog and to be there when you fulfill your dreams. God bless!

    • Thank you Curtis. I hope your journey of completing your bucket-list brings great joy to your life!

  19. You can certainly see your expertise within the paintings you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. Always go after your heart.

  20. Thank you for your comment. It doesn’t take as much money as one would think and since I’m about to complete my ninetieth dream come true (yes the blog needs updating) without marrying a rich husband I can tell you with all certainty that dreams do come true, no matter what your income if you make the choices to go after your deepest desires.

    Make your dreams come true. It’s possible!
