Today I sat down to write my 2016 wish list. I do it every year. Often the simple act of writing things I want to achieve somehow makes them more attainable. My lists ranges from the vain and ridiculous like:
have a small but meaningful fling with Brad Pitt find a never ending jar of Nutella that doesn’t make my jeans shrink to sing like Adele or Aretha (not fussed which)
To the more obtainable:
visit the Gili Islands off the coast of Indonesia watch more sunrises and sunsets get my motorbike licence (cue midlife crisis) learn to speak Italian beyond grade 2 level and without the thick Aussie accent.
And finally I focus on my photography and what I would like to achieve. If any of these resonate with you, feel free to try them out and see what happens.
The quotes that are above each resolution are on my office wall to remind myself what matters and keep me on track.
Oh and if you are reading this Brad, call me…
