Can you believe we’re more than half way through the 2nd month of the year? Wow. Just thinking about it is making me feel all kinds of emotions; happy, sad, anxious, worried, excited.
About a few weeks ago, while I was thinking of things I wanted to accomplish this year a thought popped into my head, “I’m turning 23 this year. It dawned on me, kept me up all night, and it’s all I could think about for weeks. I know you’re all probably rolling your eyes and thinking, “What are you talking about??? You’re so young!” And the more I thought about it, the more motivated I got. “Positive thoughts, positive thoughts, positive thoughts”, I kept repeating in head. My mind was so muddled and tired from all the overthinking, I just needed to rest I thought to myself. But, a few days later, somehow, something in my head just clicked.
I’m young. I’m single. I’m free, active, and motivated. So what’s stopping me from putting myself out there and reaching my goals? And the answer is… nothing! I’ll be honest though, I’m pretty scared. 2016 is pretty much a give-it-your-best-shot-don’t-worry-if-you-fail kind of year. I don’t know what’s going to happen, where I’m going to go or what I’m going to do buuuuuut I’ve written a short and somewhat realistic bucketlist for 2016 and I hope that every single one will be checked off by the end of year.
- Climb a mountain
- Take part in a fun run
- Travel through some parts of Europe
- Do volunteer work
- Do something adventurous
- Post regularly on my blog
- Start making travel videos (and upload them to Youtube)
- Be more active
- Become a better speaker
- Travel somewhere alone (local or international)
Those are my ten goals for 2016! I’d love to hear about all yours. What are your plans for your unforgettable year??? Dream big! Leaving you guys with an inspirational quote to keep you motivated:
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
