In a couple of days, we’ll be saying goodbye to 2015. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done: you’ve managed to survive the highs and lows of this year, and you’ve emerged stronger and better after everything. Make 2015 more memorable by including these in your bucket list. Here are five things you should do before 2015 ends:
1. Finish a book.
So you’ve been quite busy with work that you’ve lost sight of that literary gem that’s been gathering dust on your shelf for almost a year now. Pick it up and start flipping through its pages, relish its beautiful story, and escape onto its pages for a couple of hours.
2. Say “sorry” and “thank you.”
“Is it too late to say sorry now?” croons Justin Bieber in his LSS-inducing hit. But the thing is, it’s never too late to say sorry. It’s a nice feeling to enter the New Year knowing that things are okay.
And of course, never forget these two precious words: thank you. Be grateful, be thankful to everyone and everything, for a year that was, for the people you have, for the blessings you’re enjoying.
3. Share your blessings.
Gather some friends and donate toys to the children living in orphanages, or stage a concert or a little program for the needy. You got a lot this year, anyway, and your helping hand can definitely send out good cheer.
4. Go on a solo trip.
Backpacking is the way to go! If you’ve been eyeing to go on a solo getaway for months , now’s the chance. Just enjoy the moment, the sight, the culture, the people, the food, and everything that comes with going to a new locale. The experience will help you grow into a better person for the following year, and who knows, it will also encourage you to go on dates with yourself more!
5. Reconnect with old friends.
In this fast-paced world filled with busy schedules and hectic deadlines, we rarely get to spend time with our loved ones as much as we want to. Make the first move and send a text message to your grade school friends, high school barkada or your college lunchtime buddies and organize a meet up.
