100 days to go

It's September 22nd, the 266th day of the year.

Way back on April 9th, I wrote about the 100th day of the year, and the 100 Happy Moments I'd tracked thus far.

Now there are only 100 days left. This entire blogging experiment -- really, this entire 2016 year -- is slowly, slowly creeping towards its end.

It's been an amazing year so far. Like, for real. I went to India for the first time. I certified as a yoga teacher. I hiked through Scotland. I started dating my phenomenal new boyfriend.

But there's more. I'm still scratching at the surface of some of the resolutions I made for this 2016 Year of Amazingness. 

And so, with 100 days left, I'm winnowing. I'm focusing. And I'm putting this out there: I have Three Big Goals that I want to accomplish before this amazing year lets out. And here they are:

1) I want to quit my job. 

2) I want to publish my novel.

3) I want to teach at least one "real" yoga class at a studio or gym.

There you have it. It's on the Internet, so now the whole world knows about it, and I better get cracking. And the thing is, none of these three goals is unattainable. Sure, there may be a little luck involved. But all three of these are largely and primarily driven by me and my actions.

And I think if there's maybe one thing that this whole blogging experience has taught me thus far, it's this: You really do get out of life what you put into it.

It's not earth-shattering news, but it's true. Want to start a blog, even though you always failed before? You can. Want to write every day, even though you don't know what the Hell you're talking about? Write anyway and discover. Want to be a yoga teacher even though you can't even do a headstand yet? Do it anyway and learn. Want to visit somewhere, try something, meet someone? Then GO! DO! ACT!

I have 100 days, and 100 Happy Moments, left this year. I have three goals.

It's time.
