2014 Bucket List

24 hours to go before 2014.

I know we are all excited for the coming year. We want to know what 2014 has in store for us. The question is, "Are we ready?" Are we prepared to welcome another new year in our lives? Do we have the courage to let go of the happy or gloomy days in 2013 and face the unknown days in 2014? Our answers to these questions may vary depending on the experiences we've had in the previous 364 days. Whatever our answers may be, one thing is for sure: that the year is about to end and we have no choice but to welcome 2014 with a blast!

One of the preparations I've made is creating my bucket list or check list for 2014. For the new year, I want to step out of my comfort zone and do the things I've always wanted to do. It's time to set aside all my excuses and start doing what I should have done a long time ago. The thoughts of "I have no time," "I am afraid," "I can't do it on my own," and "Will I ever make it?" will no longer be entertained. This time, I'm going to make things happen!

  18. Bucket list for 2014??? Hmmmm.. The last time I make a bucket list 'twas 2012 and I only make 3 out of 10. But as I said setting goals is not bad, the problems arises when values that underlie and the process to achieve them are skewed.
