Who in this world doesn’t like writing lists?! Definitely not Jess! If there is something we need to do, it will be written down somewhere on at least one list. Some would call it OCD, whilst some might be getting their note pad (specifically for lists of course) out ready to write their own list right now.

What better list to write than of all of the wonderful things you would love to do in your life. Those things that you’d never imagine to be more than just a dream.
