Day 3023 – Out Of The Office

We’re heading out today for our potentially last camping trip of the year. I think I’m actually going to completely turn off my phone while I’m away, which is SO new for me. So catch y’all next week! (But enjoy the scheduled posts!)

Day 3022 – Another Book That Changed My Life – Reading People By Anne Bogel

In case you’re brand spankin’ new, you know I love to read. I read all the time. One person who has helped me embrace my reading even more, is Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy. She has been sharing about a book she wrote for a while, and after weeks of waiting, I finally got the audio version from the library. Audio books are harder for me to get through because I just don’t have the time to fit them in and listen as much as I would sit down to read. Thankfully, one thing I’m learning about myself is the need to break up my afternoons with a walk, dance party, and laughing like crazy. In my short walks, I’ve been making my way through the book. I’ve also gotten in a few chunks while driving to my job in Annapolis. I JUST finished last night, and I have to say, AMAZING! I’m a big fan of personality tests, and so is she. The book is about a number of different personality tests, and how they apply to your life. I found myself nodding along, and saying things like YES! in my head…..or out loud…. Truly getting to know yourself, knowing what you can and can’t handle, and not judging what you find has been huge in my life over the past few years. I’ve learned some things totally stress me out and I just can’t handle too much of it…or I have to cut it out completely. Things like nudity in movies, alcohol, or the books I read – I really can’t read some of the types of books I used to. I can’t watch some of the shows I used to. I can’t do some of the things I used to.

So to find a book that helps me further know myself, and embrace myself, gives me strength to continue in the path and forge ahead without apology. It also gave me some insight into others. So give Reading People* a listen, or a purchase. Or put in a hold request at the library. One thing I LOVE about Anne, is that she has no judgement for how you read a book.

Since I have no photo of her book, here’s a pretty picture. 😀

Day 3021 – Bret Has Officially Broken A World Record

Bret and I have had to make a lot of sacrifices over the years. Sometimes for paying down debt, sometimes to protect ourselves, sometimes for our health, sometimes to achieve something great. Since Bret is not a bragger, I’m going to share this for him. In October of 2013, Bret attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the fireman’s carry. He unofficially broke it, but then found out he hadn’t run far enough by only about ten steps. He decided to try it again in California, carrying his dad. He attempted it again, and unofficially broke it in December of 2014. For a number of reasons, we weren’t able to submit everything until the Fall 2016/Spring 2017. In a lot of ways, Bret had let this go. Whether it was ever officially recognized or not, he knew he broke it. We’ve been periodically checking the status, but there have been a long line of other Guinness World Record attempts getting reviewed.

Nearly three years after his 2nd attempt, Bret was informed that he officially broke the record. Ladies and gentlemen, my husband is a Guinness World Record holder. You can see him online here:

Bret, thanks for showing me how sacrifices, discipline, and saying no are worth it.

Day 3020 – Spreadsheet Day

I am a big fan of spreadsheets, and I’m SO glad that I have a whole day to celebrate them! I make spreadsheets for everything. Whether it’s a checklist to print off for my goals, or creating Pivot Tables for Bret’s business, or an Epic Road Trip Planning Budget, I LOVE spreadsheets!

What’s your favorite way to use spreadsheets?

Day 3019 – Slow And Small Steps Are Key To Actually Completing Your Goals

There are a number of things I’ve been wanting to do for a long time – running a 5k, making money passively online, living full time in an RV, traveling more than I’m in one spot, having several businesses. There are not enough hours in the day to do it all, and I’m learning ways to get around that and actually meet those goals. The biggest thing I’ve learned, and certainly one of the most life changing in the last few months, is taking small steps every day. Instead of taking days and hours and hours of work to get “caught up” on Pinterest, I’m slowly building things up, reviewing what content I can share, and planning ahead. Instead of trying ambitious workout plans, I’m doing small things every day. I have never been this consistent with working out. The hardest thing for me is drastically decreasing how much I run. I love to run, but my body isn’t where my head is. Not even close. I ran just over half a mile last week, and I was SO sore (like could barely walk) for almost a week. Two days ago, I ran a quarter mile, that’s it. But I wasn’t that sore, and I can run again today. Bret has told me for a long time, that there’s no such thing as too slow, why does it take me so long to actually listen to him?

So take heart, there’s no such thing as too slow.
