It’s that time of the year. In less than two weeks we will enter a New Year with joy and perhaps some regrets about what we would like to have tried, completed, let go of etc during the year 2017. Many of us will be making resolutions: eat healthier, exercise more, nurturing our great relationships, letting go of unpleasant even toxic relationships, spending less and on and on.
I make lists a lot and I get to check off some items and notice that some items are still sitting there. I started to think of the lists that I made in 2017 and how I had a 2017 bucket list.
I checked my bucket list just a few days ago. it’s almost full to overflowing. Argggh!!!
Here’s a short version the list and it’s full of “more.” What’s that all about anyway? A lot of the items are always works in progress and will be on the 2018 list!
1. Pray & meditate more 2. Improve my mindfulness practice 3. Nurture great relationships with family and friends. 4. Let go of unhealthy relationships 5. Learn to play piano 6. Exercise more 7. Eat more vegetables 8. Write my memoir 9. Write the stories my parents told me for my grandchildren. 10. Join a dance group for fun 11. Travel to Greece/Spain 12. Start a private practice and help more people 13. Create passive income 14. Read fiction books and not just clinical or social work books
