My 16 For 16

Untitled design 4 1 1024x768 My 16 For 16I often thought about my life goals, and what I would put on my bucket list. I’ve seen other peoples list that seem to be miles long. Just thinking about a list of 100 or more life goals is so overwhelming!

The only way to tackle a list of goals big or small is the same way I’d eat an elephant.

One Bite At A Time

Of course I have goals, but even the thought of having dozens of things to accomplish, and not knowing the expiration date is a little more than I want to think about.

Instead, I’ve narrowed things down to just doing what I can this year. And next year… I’ll just have to cross that bridge when I come to it.

As I thought about it a little more, It dawned on me. Why not create a list of 16 things I want to accomplish in 2016? And that’s exactly what I did. As I complete each one, I’ll come back to this very post and mark it done with a picture.

I’m three months behind. I’d better step on it!

  1. Start an Indie Publishing company. In progress
  2. Publish at least one children’s book.
  3. Visit the Grand Canyon. It was absolutely AMAZING! GCNP16 1024x896 My 16 For 16
  4. Visit Petit Jean Mountain State Park. For years,I’ve wanted to hike there during the spring to see the waterfalls. This year it’s happening!
  5. Go camping.
  6. Create a patio garden in the backyard.
  7. Have a real live photo shoot with makeup, wardrobe, the works!            May 14, two days before my birthday, I attended a tea party. The dress I wore was perfect for a photo shoot, and I took advantage of it. It wasn’t as elaborate as I had envisioned, but it was perfect. The pictures on this blog are the results, what do you think?
  8. Host a tea party/ladies brunch.
  9. Host a writers workshop for kids.
  10. Set up several little free libraries.
  11. Have a book drive.
  12. Have a Nunnie camp with the Sugababies.
  13. Eat sushi with my daughters.
  14. Visit the Crater of Diamonds.
  15. Plan a get away with ONLY Mr. Husband.
  16. Open for incoming ideas.

To say I’m excited about the year ahead and its possibilities is an understatement. Do you have a bucket list, life goals? How do you tackle them?
