Every year, while everyone is out celebrating the New Years, I usually take this time to reflect, with cold beers of course. That’s my New Year’s Eve routine. It has been that way for the past three years.
That’s my New Year’s Eve routine. It has been that way for the past three years.
This year was a an AMAZING year for me; I achieved goals in my mini bucket list that I wrote on my whiteboard. The biggest goal was to get six pack abs! OH YEAH!
I always wanted it, so I worked hard for it and got it before my birthday.
Last night, for some strange reason, I was up for over 20 hours. I couldn’t sleep; I had so much on my mind. Usually, when this happens, I turn to writing because it allows me to express myself well.
It’s my ‘moment’, and I won’t stop writing until my eyes feel heavy.
Last night I wrote a couple of blog drafts. Then while searching for quotes for my blog post when I stumbled upon a quote by William Ross. He said
“Every man dies – Not every man really lives.”
What a strange quote to be reading when you’re up at 4 am. That drove me to create a list of new things to try and achieve in 2016.
That drove me to create a list of new things to try and achieve in 2016. It’s time to start living… I told myself.
The thing is while I achieved many things in my mini bucket list, there were also things I wanted to do in 2015 that was left unintended.
I’ve procrastinated on some of them for months and years now.
Many of them can be achieved easily, and some of them scare the living hell out of me like eating BUGS! Some seem impossible but I’ll try my best. Failing for me is always moving forward. Not trying is failing for me.
Failing for me is always moving forward. Not trying is failing for me.
So for my bucket list ideas for 2016, I have three simple rules:
- The entire list must be completed by 31st December 2016.
- I can not add or remove any item from the list
- I’ll update my progress on a monthly basis
