The Master Plan for 2016

live seasoned winter15 new years resolutionsThat’s my plan for 2016.  Last week, I talked about my goals from 2015 and which of those I managed to tackle.  This year the list is a little bit shorter, but it was given just as much thought. I haven’t added any stragglers from last year because I’m starting to realize which resolutions are more like a pipe dreams and I’ve decided to leave them off the list this year.  Form a solid daily routine? Pshhh, never gonna happen. Call people more often? I’m finally ready to admit that I’m just not a phone person. I never have been. I love when people call me, but I never ever think to call people in my spare time. So this year, I’m going to try to do more of everything I like to do and less of everything else.  That’s the master plan.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  Here are the specifics:

  1. Start teaching yoga regularly
  2. Write an e-book on the Annapurna circuit & get published as a travel writer
  3. Be a nomad in the car for a while / travel as much as possible
  4. Visit the Daenzers in Colorado at least four times
  5. Continue to advance the blog & prepare posts further in advance

All those are pretty straightforward, but they do take some prepping and planning.  I’m excited to share my progress with you as the year moves along, which had me thinking I should give you some proof of success with some of my 2015 resolutions.  One of my favorite resolutions was reading two books per month, which felt more like a treat than a resolution, but it certainly took some dedication. Ohhh those hours on the couch or in the hammock, such hard work!  I actually read my fair share of not-so-spectacular books, but  here are three favorites off the top of my head in 2015:

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

The Kindness of Strangers: Penniless Across America by Mike McIntyre

The Story of My Boyhood and Youth: An Autobiography by John Muir

I now realize all three novels are about pretty amazing journeys so I suppose it makes sense that my life is starting to follow suit.  Hope you have a journey or two planned for 2016. Tonight I’m headed south to Florida to visit my childhood best friend and a family of amazing Brazilians that I haven’t seen in over three years.  I’m excited to escape to warmer weather for a week.  I’m also thinking about visiting the Everglades and potentially the Florida Keys, can’t wait to see where this week takes me.
