Will a list of resolutions make me happier?


This post is inspired by my friend Anne who has a blog about yoga and what it does for her life. When she turned 32, she made a list of 32 things to do in her 32nd year that would make her even happier. She has accomplished quite a few of her resolutions already and judging from her big smile every time I see her, I tend to think it might work!!

My list is 29 things I want to do in my 29th year because I think focusing on these resolutions or points or what you may call them, will make my life more full in a way. I am sharing them with you, because you may actually be able to help me accomplish some of the points. You may be REALLY funny and able to make me laugh all the time, or you may wanna beat me in tennis the first time and get your ass kicked afterwards. Whatever it is, give me a shout! I would love to hear your feedback…
