Post-a-Day Blog Challenge Day 2

Today's blog prompt from  Kinderchat's 2014 January Post-a-Day Blog Challenge is:
2. One resolution for 2014
         I don't make resolutions any more. I've never been very successful with it.  Last year I tried  One Little Word.  The idea is to pick one word that will inspire you all year.   For the life of me, I can't remember what my word was.  Obviously, it has not inspired me:) 
         However, I have found a way of working towards goals that I really love.  Last July, when I turned 54,  I wrote a list of "55 Things I Want to Do During My 55th Year."  The list has big and little goals.  I keep it on my refrigerator and highlight things as I complete them. Some goals relate to school (lots of sensory bins and walks), some to my interactions with my friends and family (girls weekend, visits to relatives, dates with my husband), some are intended to "improve myself" (go to weight watchers, volunteer somewhere), some will push me out of my comfort zone (eat by myself at a restaurant) and some are just fun (sleep outside, take a picture every day). I'm not sure I will reach all of the goals before July but the list has encouraged me to try to new things and it's been fun too.  I'm really happy with this approach to setting goals.

  4. I am so doing this idea! I always make a list for each Spring Break and Summer vacations that the whole family helps create, but I'm liking the list for the whole year. May I borrow your idea? I have a birthday coming up soon. Good luck with completing the list!

  6. That's a great idea. Having it on the fridge must be a super motivator!
