As 2014 was coming to an end there were many times I sat back and reflected on everything I did not do last year. On the beginning of the year, I had written a list of “goals” I was going to accomplish.
- Qualify for the 2015 Boston Marathon.
- Travel once again to Europe. This time my husband and I will travel to Germany, Switzerland and Italy. IT WILL HAPPEN.
Enroll to get my masters. Write more.
- Really focus on my career goals. I’m always scared of change, but change is good, which I tend to forget (hey, we can’t always be perfect, right?). I have a few things in mind, and I’ve had them for a while, just have to develop them.
Help the children in Monte Escobedo (the town were my parents are from). It’s been in the works for about six months and I’m excited to see it happen!l
Out of the six that I had, I only did about three in a half. I didn’t qualify for Boston, didn’t travel to Europe nor have I felt like I’ve done much with my career.
The only excuse I have for you today is, shit happens. Just because I didn’t do those three goals does not mean I will never accomplish them, trust me, I will. Will it happen this year? I don’t know. It’ll be nice, but if it doesn’t, it won’t be the end of the world.
Going back on me reflecting about everything that I did not do, as I was talking about it to my husband, we both came up with a huge list of things we did do. And none of them were part of my list! And those things that we did do meant so much to both of us, why? Because they were spontaneous!
So what are my goals/resolutions for 2015?
I don’t have any. I’m just going to live day by day. If I want to book a plane ticket and get the heck out of here for a while, I will. If I want to purchase something that I shouldn’t because I can’t afford it but still do it, oh well. If I do something crazy with my career, hallelujah! If I don’t, tough shit. I’m not saying I’m going to start getting a ton of credit cards and live like I’m rich or something, I’m just saying that if the opportunity presents itself, I’m not going to think so much about it.
Something that my mother always told me, “live your day like there’s no tomorrow.” And you know what? I think I might just start doing that.
May your hopes and dreams come true this year and if they don’t, there’s always next year. Remember to be spontaneous, live your life, hug and love those that mean so much to you.
Cheers to 2015 everyone!
From us to you!
