I can cut this post in half and simply say I just don’t want to make the same pointless chaos I did in 2014. But that would also be pointless and it would suck, ha-ha.
This year I have decided to break my New Year’s resolution into four categories and called it “2015 bucket list”, and it just sounds less scary. I know “if your dreams don’t scare you, then they are not big enough”, but the way I see it anything will scare you, but to save yourself the disappointment at the end of the year (which most of us will), I decided to look at my resolution as a bucket list. This way at the end of the year, whatever I did not fully accomplish I can carry it out to the following year’s bucket. But please do TRY to empty out your bucket each intended year J
