My Only Goal For The Year: Enjoy Life.

This year I want to do so many new things. I equate my miscarriage to a near death experience in the sense that I'm so much more appreciative of life and really want to do as many things that I love as I possibly can before I have to tone things down a little to focus on another human being. We've decided to hold off on having a baby until I'm done with nursing school and in a way it's a relief to have more time to 'grow up' and explore life. So in the meantime, here are my plans.
I want to go on a long backpacking trip, consisting of multiple nights. I want to rock climb, both indoors and outdoors. I want to wash my laundry once a week so I can stop stressing about it piling up. I want to visit friends who live in other states. I want to spend more time outdoors than indoors. I want to travel, even if just for a weekend, and see new places. I want to learn so much in school and try and enjoy every second of it. I want to mountain bike in many cities all across the country (but most likely in the Southwest). I want to eat so much food that it nourishes my soul. I want to go camping as many nights as possible. I want to grow our business. I want to get a tattoo or three. I want to swim in the ocean. I want to go on dates with my husband. I want to kayak. I want to pick fruit in an orchard. I want to skydive. I want to drink more water than anything else. I want to read books that are so good I need to make space for them on my bookshelf. I want to spend more time with friends and family. I want to take beautiful pictures and print them out. I want to take my dog in the woods more. I want to simplify my home and get rid of things. I want to meditate more. I want to stay healthy. I want to enjoy life.

Life is an amazing thing and there are so many things you can do with it, so this year I'm putting more effort into simply enjoying it.


  1. I love it and I can't wait to hear all about all these adventures!

  2. Life -is- amazing, and this goal is amazing too. To simply enjoy life, to get the most out of every moment, is just fantastic. I'm excited to see where this year takes you ^_^

  3. I love it! No matter how much I tell myself to slow down and fully savor every second that I'm alive, I still need reminders like this!
