One goal to be ticked off per month, although it's not going to be quite that tidy. This is my list: yours will be different.

We're halfway through the year and I've worked on half these tasks. I'm expecting some to be a challenge, some to be fun, and some to be fiendishly difficult. Wish me luck! 

  1. Adapt housing for old age
  2. Get finances in order
  3. Establish an exercise regime
  4. Audit eating habits
  5. Commit to hobbies
  6. Make two new friends (this year and every year)
  7. Banish ye oldie voice
  8. Learn a new skill (this year and every year)
  9. Cultivate meditation techniques
  10. Align happiness factors
  11. Be who you are
  12. Come to terms with old age and death
It's a boot camp. Tough going. Cute little cupids cannot disguise that fact.
