Kaileen Elise challegned us today:
December 18 – Try What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it?My mind is a wash of a lot of things that I want to do, see, learn in the next year. I want to learn how to play the guitar. I want to lose 15 lbs and tone up some muscles and maintain that physique. I want to take writing more seriously. Professionally speaking, I want to empower my laity so that I don't have to write the agendas for all of our meetings. I want a deeper relationship with God through prayer and stillness. I want to spend more time with my family
But as I think about all of those things, nothing strikes me as something to try at... either I'm going to do them, or I'm not.
And I found a bunch of really interesting stuff!!!
Next, Things to try at Wal-Mart when you are bored. Self-explanatory. But nothing that I really want to do... maybe if I were ten years younger.
There are a ton of bucket-lists out there, including this one, and this one, and oh yeah, this one.
- have your portrait painted... I've never done this - not even those cartoon drawings at Adventureland.
- make love on the kitchen floor... yep.
- visit New York City... definately on my list. In fact, I would like to take a trip to the northeast in general this next year.
- go skiing... I have never been snow skiing in my life. That's a great thing I could try next year.
Probably hiking up Koko Head Crater. It was something I always wanted to do and I finally did it, barely. That's something I've talked about in a few of these other reverb10 posts.
Another big accomplishment for me this year is that I decided to try and make a full scale blanket by crocheting/knitting. It was a huge success and I'm now working on number three!!! A big step up from the scarves - which were my only prior attempts.
