Firsts for 2016

Last year I created a list of things that I did for the first time in 2015 (here is the link to last years post!).  Good & bad.  It was really fun.

It is so easy to race through life and never look back an reflect.  In general, one of the things, I am trying to do more is actually take the time to think.  I know this sounds crazy, but many times I am so busy that I do not take time to really thing things through.  In hoping to think more, I want to reflect more, plan more and most importantly get to know myself better.

Where will I find the time to think?  This is the tough one.  Maybe I will watch a little less TV, or try to do some thinking while driving or doing chores instead of listening to music and podcasts.  The time is there, I have to figure out the best way to utilize it!

Here are some of the highlights from my firsts for 2016.

  • Got married!  Wahoo!
  • I went to Nashville! – Nashville had been on my list for a long time!
  • Went to Galena
  • Quit a volunteering gig that was taking too much time from me.  Felt liberating to quit.
  • Used our new fire pit!
  • Went to a local nature park to hike & another to climb stairs
  • Got my work email inbox to 0 a few times! I do not know if I have ever done this before in my career.

I bet if you reflect back on your year, you’ll find some amazing wins in your year too!  Share some of yours with us!

    I loved reading your list of firsts for 2016!
    Some of my firsts include:
    1. We rode 42 miles on our bicycles in 1 day.
    2. We went to the McKinnley Presidential Library
    3. I went back to college! (This one has been a long time coming.)
