"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence
“Either write something worth doing or do something worth writing about.”

That’s my 2014 resolution in a nutshell. I’m going against the grain here: I love goal setting and I love lists. Last New Year I wrote down several things that I wanted to check off of my bucket list for 2013 and it was empowering to accomplish those things. Some of those goals changed and morphed as the year went on, some goals will just carry into this year. Let’s not be militaristic about this thing, eh?
It was seriously awesome to go to my first NFL game last year (GO HAWKS), to finally see the Grand Canyon, and to visit my mom in Alaska. My cookbook is started but still in the works. Rather than get out of debt I put myself in even more by buying a house, but it’s a bigger dream realized that I could have hoped for. I got a new position at work that I love in Purchasing. And I didn’t see it coming back in January 2013, but I married the love of my life last month. The year had it’s hiccups and bumps in the road, but it was better than I could have dreamed of.
My plan for 2014 is that whatever it may hold, that it will be adventurous, inspiring, bring life and joy to others. As far as this blog goes, I want it to be a year of doing things worth writing about and worth reading.
So for 2014, here’s my bucket list:
So there it is, out there for the world to see. Happy New Year!
What dreams are you going to accomplish it 2014?
