let’s do this, 2017

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” ― Albert Einstein

We all know what time of year it is…

I’m sharing my 2017 aspirations/goals/whatever you want to call them…in order to inspire you to create some for yourself.

I personally enjoy crossing things off my to-do list, feeling that I accomplished something…even if I’ve just written a thank you or organized my craft box…in my mind, that’s still something to be proud of. So by writing these down, I’m responsible for completing them…and I’m excited!

As I write this, I’m already training for a 5k thanks to Couch 2 5k, encouragement from friends, and the fact that I already signed up for the Nashville Rock n Roll Race!

2017 goals

for the year 

  • run a 5k
  • play bocce ball
  • play tennis
  • play volleyball
  • make a decoupage project



  • volunteer with an organization long-term, or find a volunteer activity to participate in quarterly
  • read 1 book/quarter
  • hike in the park or take a weekend drive to a small town (can do this every weekend in the summer and early fall!)
  • attend a local show (music, art, theater!)



  • exercise at least 5x/week
  • long weekend walk with my little dog Peanut



  • meditate using the Calm App (more on that here)

“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.” ―Thomas A. Edison
