It’s My Birthday: Month of Me Bucket List

This year I have decided to celebrate my birthday by borrowing an idea from my one of my virtual friends Jason Francis. He celebrated his birthday with a campaign he called the #monthofme.  Subsequently my friend Natalie claimed her month and I figured why don’t  I do the same.


As you can see (from the previous blog posts), last year I experimented with developing monthly bucket lists which were intended to help me stay focused on my yearly goals throughout the year. Often I get to the end of the year and reflect on the things not yet accomplished and I wanted to set myself up for success this year instead. My year is not usually synced with the start of a new year in January like most but instead with a new year of life for me which is my birthday. My desire is to change my birthday from being a time when I reflect on all that I haven’t accomplished to a time when I am excited about the accomplishments of the year past and focused on continuing the growth in to the year ahead.


So when I read this idea of celebrating myself for the entire month I thought, it’s my birthday why not?! So this month just like my attempts in the past, I have composed a list of things that I would like to do for myself this month. I intend for this month to be full of fun and adventure. I hope this list may also serve as a catalyst to help me develop new habits, since they say it only takes 21 days and my #monthofme has 31.  Please feel free to join me in any of my tasks and celebrations by following me on Instagram or Facebook.
