full-life list for 2015

**Note to reader: This is my goal/dream list for 2015. I can’t wait to see how much God allows me to accomplish with this new year:

  • Possibly move.
  • Tattoo #5
  • Spend as much time as possible with loved ones. Life is too short to not take the time needed to build and maintain relationships. Be intentional about those relationships and building new ones.
  • Spend more time in conversations that matter.
  • Complain less. Do more.
  • Spend less time worrying.
  • Pray more.
  • Discover and do more of what I love doing.
  • Listen to new music – continue to broaden those horizons.
  • Keep moving forward with my healthy lifestyle. Don’t be afraid to try something new.
  • Really care about what I eat. I’m not in my twenties any longer.
  • Take more photos. Make memories.
  • Write more. Period. Pick one night a week, budget out cash for this, and go to a coffee shop with my laptop or a notebook in tow and write.
  • Challenge my own presuppositions. It’s okay to know where I stand, but don’t be afraid to be challenged and strengthened in the process.
  • Minimize.
  • Create margin in my life.
  • Spend less time on my phone. Be present.
  • Explore more of what I love to do
  • Volunteer.
  • Share more meals with people I care about. Invite them over for Sunday dinner or dinner once or twice a month.
  • Wake up earlier than I have to — 5 AM. Use that time build on my relationship with Jesus.
  • Read more books — check out other genres and topics.
  • Let creativity flow.
  • Budget – both time and money.
  • Focus on bettering myself on all aspects of life: health, fitness, finances, professional, emotional, etc.
  • Pursue God.
  • Live based on a standard of grace, not perfection. Cutting others and myself some slack.
  • Learn to really like myself.
  • Live Happily, whether I find my Ever After or not. Thrive in the gift of singleness.
  • Take more long walks.
  • Be generous. Make giving a pattern.
  • Be-friend someone older than me.
  • Let go of baggage. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last year, it’s to let go and move forward.
  • Be content with the life I have while continuing to pursue my dreams.
  • Unplug.
  • Find an organization or a charity to support long term.
  • Actively combat spiritual complacency.
  • Buy things that last; not just a quick fix.
  • Master the art of listening. Put others first. It doesn’t always have to be about me.
  • Keep working on my bucket list.
  • Expand my cultural competency.
  • Get a mentor and be a mentor.
  • Plug into ministry if I’m ready. God, am I?
  • Journal regularly.
  • Be open to love/new relationships.
  • Keep an open heart.
  • Really live.
