Funny story: all last year (when I was 33), I thought I was 34 years old.  I spent almost the whole year thinking I was 34, and then as my birthday started to approach and I was considering turning a year older, I started doing the math in my head and realized, wait a minute!! I'm 33!!  

So basically, I got a do-over year!  How cool is that?!

I really want to take advantage of my do-over year and make the most of it.  I feel like, in some ways, it's an opportunity to reinvent myself.

So here are some things I'm thinking in regards to the "new me."

One of my dearest friends (who I really need to reconnect with, actually) once told me that when you're in your 30s, you get a new perspective on life and you start caring a lot less of what other people think about you.  

This is really start to resonate with me.  I've still got a long way to go, but I think that 34 is going to be the year when I start caring less about what other people think.


The year I stop worrying about what other people will think.

The year I start wearing bright purple and hot pink running shoes.

The year I master my pancake-making skills.

The year I get my feist back.  I'm bringing feisty back!!

The year I learn CPR.

The year I run a marathon?

The year I learn Tai Kwan Do?

The year I publish  book?

I am definitely going to have to continue adding to this list.  What else do I want to do this year?  

Who do I want to be at the end of my do-over year?
