Happy New Year!

January 11, 2017


Rather than do a year in review, I decided to put the year in my rear view. Oh how clever of me, teehee. I started to write down 101 goals for myself at some point last year and never finished it. Well, it's finished now, and I figured the best thing to do is put it out in the world for some accountability. Some of these goals are dreams and some of them are physical tasks. They vary from short to long term. I would guess as things get checked off, I'll be inspired to replace them with other things or go even further with the original goals. As time goes by, I'm sure I'll want to add more things that inspire me. Think of it as a fluid list. Always evolving and improving. I suppose the idea is that even if I check off half of these in my life, it will have been a pretty sweet ride. Look at me already apologizing for the dreams I have. Let's check 'em all off! Woo! There. Better. Maybe you might be inspired to write your own list. Maybe you might have suggestions or advice that will help me check a few off mine. Here's to living a little more fully this year.
