I Don't Make Resolutions

Happy New Year! My sister Gina tagged me to post my New Years resolutions. Apparantly she doesn't know that I don't make New Years resolutions. Never have, probably never will. I'm not against them or anything and I think it is great to see people who do make resolutions achieve them. I just can't put that kind of pressure on myself. Now granted there are a ton of things that I would like to try, do or achieve but if I list them as resolutions and then don't get around to doing them this year I will feel like I have failed myself. So instead I am making a list of things that I would like to do SOMEDAY. A Bucket List of sorts:
  • Go on a missions trip
  • Learn the art of photography
  • Skydive
  • Go to Europe
  • Learn the art of cake decorating
  • Become a runner
  • Take my family on a Major League Baseball trip including stops at as many Major League Stadiums as possible and the Baseball Hall of Fame Museum in Cooperstown, New York
  • Go to Hawaii
  • Go back to school to become a nurse or a teacher

No pressure, just things I would like to do before I kick the bucket. This is just a start. I am sure that this list will grow.

I love the idea of having a list of things you want to accomplish in your life - good to have goals and aspirations.

I don't make resolutions either. I have enough things I'm constantly trying to do/change I don't need to make a new list just because the calendar changed. I love your list. Let's skydive!
