36 Resolutions

For my entire life, I think I was made to be 36.   And now, today, I AM!   I love the number.  I love that it is Year of the Dragon again.  I love that it feels like the perfect age to be.

And I feel like it is going to be a great year!

I really want to kick off 36 right and I decided that I wanted to give myself something to do and celebrate all year long.   I'm really goal oriented so it almost seems a no-brainer to have 36 Resolutions!  To finish the list in a year, I just need to do 3 of them each month.  Easy peasy.

Some of them will take months to complete.  Others, I can finish in seconds.  The big thing, though, is that they are all things I have wanted to do and now I am going to actually do them instead of sitting around expecting them to do themselves!  There won't be new years resolutions this year - just adventures from my birthday resolutions!  I can't wait!

So - in no particular order (despite the neatly ordered list) - my 36 resolutions for 36 year old me!
  1. Do something interesting with my hair
