Looking at the variety of terms on my bingo card, I realize that living a fulfilling life doesn't necessarily just mean doing big, extravagant activities. Although I'm happy to have checked off some of the more extreme or exciting things on the list - like ziplining, walking a suspension bridge, touching the ocean and rope swinging into water - there are plenty of smaller ones I haven't done that I feel would add something positive to my life as well.

I discovered another form of motivation as well. When I run on a treadmill I can bring my tablet and watch Netflix while I work out. Does that make me sound like a lazy millennial? It probably does, but how lazy can I be if I'm exercising? PineandLakes.com Illustration
