To feel fully alive you must walk thru life awake~ Jennifer Sparks
Considering it’s my birthday month you would expect super excitedness and a hip hip hooray attitude but…nah! Late again…Ha! Seems to be my mantra lately. February started off super slow but March snuck up on me like, WHOA!!! Plus that extra day in February thru me off. I wasn’t ready. Also it was a bit frustrating because I wasn’t as productive as I would like to have been last month. I had and still have a major case of writers block. The ideas keep coming but once I write them down, that’s it… nothing. The funny thing is I feel great, no even better than that, I feel AWESOME! I have my happy back with the help of finally being able to make a decision to be happy and God. I do not want to get all mushy or preachy but between church and a change of heart…babeee this girl right here is on a happy journey. Don’t believe me? ,… JUST WATCH!!

So, Kassondra Perry- Moreland a finance habitue’ came up with the 52 week challenge to save a few coinz. Not the most glamorous way to save money but hey who cares as long as it works.

The gap between having a goal and reaching it is vast. It is no secret that I have been slacking with my blog, writing and social media posts. Call a spade a spade, I have failed in the ‘goal’ department. Today I am starting 2016 with a clean slate. This year I will spend less time watching TV (the struggle), giving up my time to others who do not appreciate me, doubting myself and nonproductive social media scrolling. Instead I will be dynamic, intentional and plan on spending time with others who know my worth. So, with that being said I am going to kick off my very first 2016 blog with a selfie (My specialty) and 5 random facts about me, myself and I. Maybe you if you knew a bit about me, you will love me.

Hello October, One moment please I need to reflect. I have no idea what happened to September, I blinked. Can I be real? September was the most stressful month, not to mention the busiest for me. I didn’t blog a thing, well except my goals. But I joined Toastmasters, ran/walked a 5k while drinking wine, and I was finally able to kayak. Oh an, I have a new job!! Fortunately that means I have so much to share this month.

As the summer season exits, enters the fall then soon there after winter. Cool weather nipping at the cups of our pumpking spice latte as we sip in expectation of whats to come. I am so ready for some boots!!! Don’t get me wrong, summer will be missed but there is something so euphoric about the fall. This summer I accomplished so much, this visions of the road trips, visiting family, full-filling my bucket list life adventures all still dance in my head.

This has been a long week. I have not been getting very much done with my blog other than a random note here and there. I’ve sorta snapped out of my funk but there is so much to do I can hardly concentrate. Sometimes I can not believe how how often I surprise myself by focusing on what matters, when it matters. I think it has a lot to do with being a woman. We are strong like, ya know? Any way, without further ado ….
