A List of Note: What I Won’t & Will Miss

I love lists. Maybe because the format makes it easier on my brain to digest. Or maybe it’s the organization I like. Or the aesthetic.

No matter the reason, I love lists and this is why I was reading Nora Ephron’s list of what she will and what she won’t miss. It inspired me to make a list of my very own “What I Won’t Miss” and “What I Will Miss”.

What initially started out as a fun idea, quickly turned into something somber, then serious, then joyful. Make your own and you’ll see why. It’s an exercise on life-reflection, self-reflection, and gratitude. I really enjoyed making this list…
