Back in November I posted my 28 before 29 goal list so it seems pretty silly to make a bunch of New Year resolutions when that goal list pretty much has all those resolution type things on it. Not to mention, I really like the 28 before 29 idea thing. So instead of making another whole list of goals for the New Year I decided from now on I am just going to use the New Year to resolve to doing at least one thing from my bucket list.
This year I’ve decided that by the end of 2014 I want to have taken voice lessons. I’m not looking to become the next Beyoncé or the next American Idol but I’ve always have wanted to be able to sing. Or at least be confident enough to sing in front of people without questioning if said people want to poke their ears out with pens or not. I want to be able to go up and sing a song at karaoke while sober and not worry that all the glasses in the room will shatter. I’ve always wanted to sing and possibly be in a band and this is the year I am going to do that. Take voice lessons, become a confident singer, and sing one song in some sort of public forum. At this point, the idea of singing turning into something bigger isn’t even on my radar. I just want to look back and be able to say, “I did that”. I think it’d be cool to be that friend that someone ask to sing a song at their wedding or to sing the National Anthem at a little league game or play one show as a part of a 90’s cover band. It could be fun. And worst case scenario and it all goes horribly wrong? At least I said I tried and I won’t look back on my life wondering, “What if?”
What’s your New Year Resolution? Anything big? Or are you one of those “I want to eat healthier this year” types? I’d love to hear what you hope to have in store for your 2014.
