Happy to be in a new year!
From everything I’ve been seeing and reading lately, it feels as though we are all very okay with saying goodbye to 2016. Great, me too… however, last year brought me another niece, some great trips, and more time spent with friends than I anticipated so I am happy about all that.
There are things that are going to suck about 2017. I have friends who are moving, jobs that are changing, a dog that is aging and family in the States dealing with the election but I am trying to stay positive and think about the good things ahead.
So with that I say onward!
Rather than resolutions, I recently read this article in Business Insider and decided a list of lists would be a more productive way to tackle twenty-seventeen. By simply writing out the 17 lists titles and adding items and checking off items throughout the year, I will hopefully figure out what I really need to make this year special. I hope you have a great year!
My list of 17 lists for 2017
- Recipes to try
- Restaurants to try
- Things I want
- Things I wanted but didn’t buy
- Places to see / visit / explore in Nova Scotia
- Daily to-do list (always changing)
- Monthly to-do list
- Bucket list (review, update, revise)
- Short-term goals
- Long-term goals
- DIY /home improvement projects (review, update, revise)
- Post ideas
- Books to read
- Movie and shows to watch
- People to contact (birthdays, follow-ups, reconnects)
- Things to do for others
- Things that make me happy
