What’s on your someday list?

What is it you’ve always wanted out of life?  People say they are searching or waiting or someday, what is your someday?  A friend of mine recently said to me “Cherie, today… This is your life, not your retirement, not your future today… this is your life!” That got me thinking about all the things I’ve always wanted to do.  I’ve always wanted to write a book.  Don’t really know what about, but one day! One day I want to Climb the face of Longs peak, even though it scares the bageebees out of me.  I would like to finish my degree, surf in Africa, and to climb where when you fall it’s into the ocean. I want a garden that I have the time to figure out how to grow my own food and the time to cook it for all my neighbors. I want to be surrounded by my family and friends and when it’s all said and done I want my life to have meant something, I want to have truly helped people.

Funny how when I sat down and thought about it, nothing that I want involved money or things!  I believe this is true for most people. Maybe the money to travel a bit or build my garden, but not tokens of wealth.  My tokens of wealth I hope to be my relationships and experiences.  So why is it that we chase our tails for things and argue about money, when relationships are where the true wealth lies?

We’re lucky enough to host Kelly Starett, mobilizing maniac, for an evening at CrossFit Verve.  Kelly is going to spend 1.5 hours mobilizing and prepping you for a heavy day WOD that you’re sure to PR.  Learn how to manage your mobility to ensure pain free, unrestricted movement.  Sign-up now!

If you already signed up for Friday’s classes, please note you will need to sign up again, as the time changed from 1 hour to 1.5!


  1. James (O.G.) :

    My Someday List:

    1) be in two Verve photos in one week (check)
    2) train with K-Star (soon to be checked)
    3) run a sub-22 5k (never gonna happen)

    No, but seriously, my biggest goal in life is to raise two kids who are happy and healthy and good people. And if they were CrossFit firebreathers, that’d be cool too.

  2. slaughter :

    Some day I want to participate in the Colorado State head down record
    Something like this.

    P.S. and be like James

    • Jim D, :

      Saughter you are much braver than I am. Like we always said in the Navy, why practice something you have to do right the first time.

      I want to sit back and watch my daughter set and accomplish her goals, play a scratch game of golf and enjoy a pain free life. Now time to go tackle Fight Gone Bad!

      Oh yeah, and a better placing this year at the games.

  3. Dan M :

    3. Be half the man & father my dad is

  4. Beck :

    Someday I will be afraid of nothing! Heart you Verve!!

  5. Rachel :

    My someday list would definitely include:
    1. Raising a happy and healthy son
    2. Continuing to better myself each and everyday
    3. To not be afraid of what others think and just do what I want to do

    Thanks for the awesome post Cherie!

  6. Jim D, :
