Day 2877 – How I Hoped To Spend The Weekend Vs. How I Will Probably Spend The Weekend

Since Bret and I are each building businesses right now (Bret real estate investing, me a business around my road trip book), we’re constantly working. Weekends aren’t days off but days to work longer hours. We did squeeze in a mini picnic last night on our living room floor with CFA nuggets, but beyond that, it’s work work work. But we were thrown a wrench when Bret got sick….and I may be coming down with something as well. So here’s how I thought I’d be spending the weekend….

Versus how I actually will spend the weekend…

Day 2865 – Sunday Night Date Night

Last night, I was SO jazzed by my epic day of finalizing SO much with my road trip business (did you join the Facebook group yet?), and we had both worked really hard all week and weekend, that we wanted to go out and celebrate. We got to finally see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and finished up the date with an Oreo milkshake….Johnny Rockets was closing, so thankfully we were able to order one to go! It was a great time of just hanging out and enjoying a really fun movie. I love movies where I laugh like that. 😀

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

Day 2861 – Is Your Dream Taking A While? Take Heart

As I scrolled through my On This Day on Facebook this morning, I saw my blog post from this day last year. I was still cranking away on my first book. That sucker took FOREVER to write. Years, actually. It felt so good to finally finish and put that guy out into the world. I look back and think, “why did I wait so long?” I know part of the reason was the type of book I wrote was one that needed a long marination in my brain. I felt myself changed in the process. Now that it is published, and I’ve gone through the process, it it much easier to take the journey. I’m working on two books right now – planning a road trip on any budget, and a memoir on my alcoholism and sobriety (this is a little hint towards my big goals…) I am getting super close to the next step in my road trip book (proofreading) and it is just crazy how quickly this book came together. I think I started with a completely blank slate in January, and here I am only a few months later and getting close to publishing my second book. So friends, take heart if your journey is taking longer than you thought it would. It may be that growth is what’s needed now.

Day 2858 – The Importance Of Big Goals

Yesterday, I made a big goal for myself. I’m not ready to share what that is with you guys yet, but stay tuned. I can tell you this – I hope to have this goal met by June 18th, my 35th birthday. Stay tuned for more info as things move along!

Here’s something I’ve discovered about myself – I need big goals, I need deadlines, and I need to have something I care about deeply. By setting a date on the calendar, I worked backwards to figure out what I need to do, and when. It’s crazy how much of a jump start this gave me today. I’ve accomplished more in this particular area this morning than I have in a month.

What are your big goals? Are you afraid to set them? Let me know in the comments below.
