As 2018 comes to an end, I’m already looking forward to the new year. Although most of you know I’m pretty positive most of the time, this year has been an extremely challenging one. This year has come with so much unpredictability, sorrow and loss. I’m confident 2019 is going to be better. I’ve heard many times that when we are going through challenging times, it often means we are growing and evolving. I’m confident that 2018 was my year of growth and learning, and 2019 will be my year to use that growth to evolve and shine into the giving goddess I’m destined to be. To help make sure of that, I’m creating a one year bucket list filled with various adventures and goals to keep me on track. I thought I'd share a few of the adventures on my list so perhaps you can also think about building a list to crush throughout the year. I’m already so excited and can’t wait to check off things on this list.
Write and publish my first cookbook
Climb the stairs to the CNTower
Attend the ballet
Purchase my second real-estate property
Start my Podcast (it’s so close and should be out early January)
Try arial yoga
Attend several (all least 3) leadership/learning conferences
Get hired for public speaking (this scares the shit out of me which is why I know I have to do it!)
Start my foundation “Maries Kitchen” which provides healthy food for families dealing with cancer (and other life changing illnesses)
Incorporate meditation and my gratitude journal into my daily routine
Is all this attainable? Absolutely! If my dreams and goals change throughout the year and I have to adapt the list, that’s okay, but for now I’m already excited to get started. As I work through this list, I’m going to add more. What are you excited about this year? Comment below!
