2015 ~ on the docket

Some things on my list that I will be working on, or possibly working on, for this year. This past year I spent so little time doing some of the things that I love doing most (e.g. listening/writing/playing music, reading) as I grew accustomed to being a stay-at-home mom and doing the brunt of the schooling at home too. This is not to say that I didn’t do anything enjoyable all year, or that I dislike being home all the time. It’s simply how I chose to focus my attention/priorities for most of last year and I am feeling quite drained, hollow even, so I am going to change that! With getting a better handle on these responsibilities last year, it means that this year I want to focus a little more on my music (I miss it so very much) and on reading (I have a very big goal this year)!

(2) Learn all my songs on all my CDs and hard drive and review/rate

~ This is always in progress for the most part, but it was kind of unintentionally put on hold for a good chunk of last year. That won’t be the case this year!

(12) Learn to box and/or kickbox

~ I want to start looking more into this as the idea of getting into MMA is soooo appealing to me. Nothing may come of it this year but I want to do my research now so I have an idea of where to begin.

(13) Be able to do 50 consecutive push-ups. Regular, no knees!

~ ahhhhhh….. This is very appropriately challenging for me! I have gotten up to 35 push-ups three times to only have to stop or cut back because something has been hurt! It is frustrating but it has helped me recognize areas that obviously need work before I can get this one done.

(15) Write music to all my songs and share with at least one person

~ By the end of this year I want to have completed this one.

(21) Go skydiving

~ There has been talk of getting this done in the Summer this year but we’ll have to see if it happens. Funds-wise and how many people are going to go too. The more people who go then the cheaper it is.

(23) Learn to meditate

~ I started this a bit last summer and I really enjoyed it and how it made me feel. Definitely want to make it a daily habit!

(28) Go bungee jumping

~ There is a place to do this at the Peachland Zipline now! And it is actually a decent price so maybe in the summer/fall sometime!

Day 365 ~ daily gratitude (#4 is DONE!)

Day 365

I’m Grateful For/That…

(1) I do push-ups or sit-ups to warm myself up instead of turning up the heat

(2) I get to make a short morning exercise program for Hulkhands!

(3) my mom taking my son for a sleepover tonight! (Thanks Mom :))

(4) I get to spend the evening ringing in the new year with some of my favourite people *excited happy dance*

(5) new beginnings and adventures!! Bring on 2015!!!


This is all DONE as of today and it was actually a lot of fun most days! I am a rather optimistic person so I didn’t find it too challenging but there were some days where it was close to impossible to find five things to be grateful for in a 24 hour period. I think that anyone who does this will definitely find by the end of it that they will be a little more cheerful and you’ll find less things to complain about in any situation/setting :D
