Seeing those Number-before-Number lists floating around on the internet always make me think, what a great idea. This morning, I sat down to come up with my list.
Things, however, did not get off to a good start:
No.1 on my list was 'Make a list of 35 before 35', ending shortly at No.15 with 'Come up with another 20 things to do'...
Clearly, 35 before 35 isn't the list for me. So I scratched out No.1 and No.15...
How about 13 goals for 2013 instead?
- Do a photography course.
- Do a sewing course.
- Do a form of exercise.
- Bake a bread a month.
- Conquer my fear of NYC Subway.
- Re-learn to drive.
- Revamp my Etsy store.
- Go to the cinema.
- Go for a musical.
- Meet other Etsy crafters.
- Finish my fabric stash: Turn them into clothes.
- Downsize wardrobe to 100 pieces of clothing.
- Live with less.
Nothing too fancy or theatrical; I like small, achievable and realistic goals. Much like baby steps. Unlike driving in the city, or brushing Fluffy, for example. Those would be highly unrealistic -- much like saying 'don't grow old and wrinkly', which is inevitable. Also, to aim to lose weight or eat healthy will never work too, because I am too weak.
There! I'm ready for the New Year. Or am I?
