2015: The Year of Doing


Everyone is making a long list of resolutions (or goals for those who are non-conformists). But how often do these lists sit dusty on a bulletin board or in a journal? I don’t want to be one of “those people” who harp about the lack of motivation in this world, but you know I’m right.

Let me take this a step further: I’m tired of watching others achieve their goals via Facebook or Twitter or Instagram. My thoughts always go to “I want to do something like that!”

Then I hit refresh and start scrolling through the newsfeed again…


For all of the above reasons, I’m calling 2015 “The Year of Doing.” I’ll be 25 in July and there’s a lot of things that I’ve always wanted to try and do. One excuse after another has kept me from action. When I’m 50, 60, 70 years old, I don’t want to wake up one day and realize that I’ve wasted my life and squandered opportunities.

2015 is The Year of Doing!

I want it to be a year–the first of many–where I look back and feel proud of all the things I’ve done and experienced. Who knows? Maybe I’ll be forced to come up with some new adventures for 2016 instead of recycled wishes from years passed. How awesome would that be?

Be encouraged, my blog family, to participate in The Year of Doing with me.

Let’s make the most of 2015. I’m excited to see all I learn about God, myself, and how I can better serve others as I put feet on my dreams.


My name is Audra Kennedy, and I am the newfound daughter of Brad and Celina. The journey toward family restoration has been quite an adventure! It’s a desire of mine to help others who are walking down the same path. Growing up without parents or growing up knowing that your parents are less than ideal is not an easy burden to carry. The good news is that there’s hope through the transforming power of Jesus Christ to overcome even the darkest of pasts. And that’s what I want to share with you.

    Hi Audra! We haven’t meet each other, but maybe Cely can tell you something about me 🙂
    Just wanted to say I loved your comment, ’cause I think we have the present as a gift to DO something, and the question (for me) is “what do I want to do before this journey ends?”… so let’s dream, and let’s do it 😀

      What a great thought, Marce! I’ll definitely ask Celina to tell me something about you. I’m not sure how I missed this comment, but thanks for sharing your thoughts. So, what things are you doing this year? I’d love to hear about your goals and dreams for 2015.
