So as you may know last month I had this bright idea to create a monthly bucket list, which I called my Leo List. It was a personal challenge to get out and about and accomplish both some of my personal and professional goals. I included things that would help me to stretch a little out of my comfort zone and usual routine. I had some success last month and found it to be a fun challenge so I decided to do it again this month.
- Complete Vision Board.
- Write at least 500 words per day.
- Record one video per week for web series.
- Complete my e-book or video series for Fat Girls Guide
- Attend a musical while in NYC.
- Eat at restaurant on my NYC hit list.
- See the Statue of Liberty
- Go to the MET or Guggenheim.
- Try a new food truck.
- Walk or bike across the Brooklyn Bridge.
- Read 2 books (1 of which is Fiction)
- Try a new recipe from one of my many cookbooks or Pinterest boards.
- Start swim lessons.
- Talk to someone I haven’t spoken to in a long time.
- Talk to a stranger.
- Jog a mile a least 3x each week (without stopping).
- Experiment with a new hair style from one of my saved YouTube videos.
- Experiment with a new make-up look from one of my saved YouTube videos.
- Enjoy a beach day with the girls.
- Confirm my end of the year trip.
My goal for the month is 100% completion of this bucket list. I will share my progress throughout the month on my facebook page and through my instagram photos. Its no fun doing this alone, so please join me and share your stories and experiences too.
So I set out to get out and about this month with a list of to dos which I called my Leo List (my August Bucket List). After working three years at a job which left me with very little spare time, I just want to take some time to enjoy myself. This list was . . . → Read More: August Bucket List – (In)Completed
A few weeks ago I applied to attend one of Ms. Bevy’s Life With Vision dinners, happening Labor Day weekend. The application consisted of answering a few questions which would display why you should be chosen for this event. The exercise although it did not yield me a spot at the table (which was yet . . . → Read More: My Open Letter to Ms. Bevy
So it occurred to me after having a conversation with a new friend that much of my (and others) paralysis comes from the desire to seek approval from others. It’s funny, I never thought of it that way, probably cause I want to be the strong, independent woman who has my shit together. And while . . . → Read More: Opinions (Even Mine) Don’t Matter
As I indicated in the previous post, I want to be a woman of action this month. I am determined to work daily on my professional development but my personal development is just as important. I am not currently working a traditional job and I want to take this hiatus to enjoy life a little. . . . → Read More: Leo List – My August Bucket List
I woke up this morning not even wanting to get out of the bed. I did though very begrudgingly and took a ride to my favorite “home office,” Panera. I grabbed some breakfast, pulled out the laptop and got to work. Even though initially it was a bit of a mental struggle, once I got . . . → Read More: Can’t I Stay In Bed Instead?!
With the recent sequence of events, I have been very sad and disappointed in my seemingly poor judgment of others. How could this seemingly well educated and knowledgeable person make such a bad decision with her time and her resources? It’s very easy to have a pity party and get on the woe is me . . . → Read More: Friends In The Storm
It’s funny I always seem to return to this blog in times of transition. Maybe if I stayed on the bandwagon, I would never fall off. Nonetheless, here we go again.
Well after another misadventure, I am stuck trying to figure out the direction of my life again. I could sit here and dwell . . . → Read More: Yes I Was Burned, But I Call It A Lesson Learned
In a random series of events I ended up on a 12 day solo journey in California. The intention of this trip was relaxation and exploration. Little did I know I would add inspiration to that equation. In a strange sequence of events I ended up meeting the founder of the I Talk to . . . → Read More: Inspiration Through Talking to Strangers
I have been inspired lately by a few awesome quotes so I wanted to share.
As I have previously written my birthday was a weird catalyst for change. It’s funny I woke up the day after my birthday determined to live a different life than I had. I have been so motivated but differently this . . . → Read More: Inspiration Requires Action
