The thing is, it is only written with such an ominous connotation in the English translation. If you switch it to the Japanese text, it comes off much more inspiring:

Quote:
いつが終わりでも1ミリも悔いはないと言い切れる一年にします。

I will make it a year in which I can declare, still yet whenever it stands as the end, that I have not even one millimeters worth of regret.
To me it sounds like she will continue to make progress on doing things she's always wanted to do, and close out the year having accomplished things she one day will no longer have the opportunity to make good on.

She wants to make it a year she did not let to go to waste.

In other words, 10 years from now she doesn't want to say "Damn, I really could have done more in 2019."
