The List: 2015.

Welcome 2015, I am so excited that you are here! You are a brand new blank page in our story that is just itching to be filled with beautiful words, stories and scribbles. I am a huge fan of lists. I need them in my everyday life to ensure I’m doing what I’m supposed to. There’s some sort of odd satisfaction I get from crossing things off of my “To-Do” list, even if it’s something small such as ‘take barre.’ It’s so rewarding! With 2015 officially here, there is not a better time to get out that pen & paper and start the grandest “To-Do” list of them all. I’m talking about my 2015 ‘To-Do’ List.

Of course, I always want to keep working towards my larger, bucket list goals but, sometimes, it’s the spaces between the big moments that are worth remembering and savoring. 🙂 To me, there’s nothing like celebrating those small little victories that make us feel like a superhuman. Here’s my list of 98 “little” things I hope, no, I WILL, accomplish in 2015.

With day one of 2015 already in full motion I am excited to get started, crossing things off my list. Happy Adventuring! I can’t wait to make this year our best yet. Remember, we are bigger than our bodies. Each person can do so much more than we think we can. We can’t forget to be fearless and limitless. We can better ourselves, better others and better the world each day if we just remember to get out there and make it happen. There is a huge world out there, begging to be explored and discovered. Let’s make this the best year yet.


“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
– Robert Frost
