Checking boxes

I have been going through my medium to long-term to-do/promises list in my head and I realized that I have just recently been ticking off a couple of major items. I know it’s not many but these items have been on my list for years — some, for a decade — so it’s a major thing for me to finally check them off. And I can also see crossing off several more in a couple of years.

It’s vaguely satisfying. You saw something years ago that you have get to or do but you know it will take a good amount of time and effort to get to and now you realize you’re standing on that place. And it seems that the other places you have to get to or the things that you have to do is so much easier to reach than it was all those years ago.
