No, that won't do.
How about a bucket list instead?
I've been steadily marking things off my bucket list. This bucket list was my "wants put into list form" last September. It was a list of things I wanted to do once I finally had all three kiddos in school and uninterrupted time during the day to myself. It was a list of things I knew I needed to work on.
See, the great thing about bucket lists is that there is no "must do by this date" requirement. There is totally no pressure. Just an "I'd like to eventually do this because....." attitude. You can add to it and subtract from it. You can work on something from the list, then take a break from it, only to pick it back up again. You can permanently leave something on the list. There is no "if this is on the list, it means it has to be done or you fail" rule. There is no official start up or end time. You can keep chugging along at it year after year.
Yes, in my opinion, bucket lists are so much better than resolutions.
