101 Things in 2010

| 3 Comments

Happy New Year!!!

I will admit, I’m a ‘New Years Resolutions’ kind of gal. I think I’ve made them every year, and always failed miserably. But in 2009, I came across the ’101 Things’ idea from the Day Zero Project and started it in May. Even though I started it in the middle of the year, in 7 months, I actually completed quite a lot of the things on there. I failed on a handful, but I still feel good about how much I got done. I think the trick is to make them quantifiable and realistic, and make sure that you actually want to do it. I think posting it up on this blog also helped add some pressure to get my butt moving and make things happen. So anyway, I’ve decided to do it again, and give myself a full year this time. I welcome all and any suggestions/advice to help me do this! Let’s make this year a truly epic one!
