Hello, 2017! And Merry Christmas, Day 12.
I have so much to share with you all, but I need to get this out of the way first.
I’ve now entered the last year of my 20s.
Yikes!! I know that sounds so young to many of you, but I have a history of freaking out before important milestones:
- I was terrified of 1st grade because I didn’t yet know how to read. There was nothing my parents could say to convince me that reading wasn’t a pre-requisite for beginning school.
- I had a panic attack the night before I turned 25. My life was a quarter over and I thought I had nothing to show for it. Nevermind that I had already bought a house, traveled to Europe, and gotten engaged to the man of my dreams.
So, my New Year’s resolutions are also a bucket list of things to do before turning 30. Um I did not just type that number, did I? Ok, here goes:
- Go to Fatima. (Portugal and Spain trip is happening!!)
- Learn image editing and graphic design skills.
- Finish the draft of my memoir.
- Stop being a perfectionist and just publish stuff.
- Keep up First Friday and First Saturday devotions when possible and totes get to Confession at a minimum of once a month.
- Stop worrying about other people and be more confident in my own life.
- Forgive those who have hurt me in the past.
- Write more mini-posts (150-200 words).
- Share YOUR stories (more on this to come!).
- Do more guest-blogging.
I have NO idea if I’ll actually be able to keep most of these. It’s more of a wish list, but I’m putting this here so you all can keep me accountable.
Now, enough about me.
What about you? Does anyone else have milestone freak-outs or major bucket lists for this year? What are your New Year’s resolutions?
Looking forward to a wonderful 2017 with all of you!

No freak out moments at the moment, but I want to make sure that I am actually DOING things instead of thinking about doing things. It’s amazing how productive I feel when reading books and getting ideas and making lists… but nothing actually happens.

Good point. I need to actually decide which plane ticket I’d like to buy for Portugal. Do I want a 1 hour layover in Newark or a 4 hour layover in Toronto? Decisions. Now you’re making me think… actions require decisions which require saying “no” to something, which is kind of scary and uncomfortable so we just kind of put it off and read something or make a list.
