Let me clarify this list of 20 things was not an easy one to make. Though in the beginning it looked like I would overflow the number of things and go beyond 20 but to be very frank I got stuck after writing 10-12 of them and I had to invest time to actually think about it. I had to analyze what I wished to do, be and have in life. I am still wondering if this the actual final list, it is subject to change as I go on living my life… my preferences will keep on changing and situations and so will the ways of life. But for the present day, yes this is the list.
