2014: Looking Back on the Year of Awesome

2014In 2014, instead of making a single New Year’s Resolution, I decided to focus on doing one really awesome thing every quarter. I wanted a way to be more mindful about making adventurous and brave choices all year long, and I wanted a resolution that could offer me fun, learning, and great memories. Here’s the list of awesome things that I was able to do this year:

Memories from the LA Marathon, and an apt statement for New Year's Eve!

I’d say this plan worked pretty well! At the very least it kept me scouting for opportunities to try something unusual or new. I might not have applied to speak at TEDx or serve as a Junior League advisor without that outlook. When I was planning trips, I specifically looked for experiences at our destination that would be unique and unforgettable. I’m going to try to keep this attitude of openness to new experiences no matter what my 2015 goals turn out to be.

What were your 2014 resolutions, and how did you do? What will you try to accomplish in 2015?
