Welcome to Love 2 Live Life!!!

I wanted to create a blog about all the things I try in life. I hope some of the things I try and do, will inspire you to step outside of your comfort zone and give new things a red hot go.

In late 2012, I had a life changing event that had me re-evaluate my life. I decided that I want to be able to look back on my life and know I lived it and loved it. I wanted to have no regrets. In life, as I am sure a lot of you do, I hear or see things and say or think ‘oh I so want to do that one day’.

Occasionally the opportunity will arise and the stars align and you get to experience something for the first time. Most things however tend to be put in the ‘one day’ basket and will never happen as life just gets in the way. I just don’t want to wake up and realise its too late.  There are already a few things I will never be able to experience due to health reasons, so I have already missed out!

I wrote a list of 40 things that I would like to do before I turn 40. I am 37 (38 in a couple of months) and I am thinking I will get through my list. I will be blogging about these experiences as well as try other hobbies, sports and interests and I will be reviewing them as I go.
