My Life! : Resolutions

It’s been forever since I read it, typically I just glance up from working and see it but don’t pay it any attention. So yesterday I decided to read it and I was amazed to see what I have accomplished and what I still dream to. I was humbled by what I still haven’t finished or ever started. I was excited to see a goal I wrote two years ago that will be accomplished this year through circumstances I never saw coming. It’s a new year and it’s the time for resolutions but instead of making up a new list I’m resolving to blow the dust off my 101 in 1001 and push forward. It’s been 2 years since I wrote it and I’ve either completed or am close to completion on 43 of my 101 goals. Some of them are BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) and some that I thought would never happen already have. It’s a snapshot of my life two years ago and what I wanted to accomplish and now I have 10 months left to finish. There are a few things that are ridiculous that I haven’t finished like the wine cubbies around my kitchen. I got one side done but nothing even started on the other side. Don’t be surprised if that makes it onto the next list too! There are things that I’m dying to check off like getting a massage after every wedding. Ahh bliss!!! There are some goals that need to be refined because they are no longer necessary or I’ve finessed them to be more current. Like take a class with my husband in something fun, well learning to sail our boat together has been an education and given us something fun to do. So not exactly what my goal was but definitely more current, I think my first idea was a cooking class or something :).

Over the next couple months I’ll be updating my 101 list and posting my results here. One goal I’m making a top priority is to get back on Weight Watchers and drop the last two years of holiday pounds I’m carrying around. I know I’m not alone there so if you need to lose weight and you need a buddy let me know! I need friends to motivate me when I’m not feeling it and I’d love to motivate you too! So be my buddy and let’s get in fab shape together!
