Blog Challenge Day 16-Bucket List

What is at the top of my bucket list?

Once upon a time, writing a book was at the top of my bucket list. It’s been at the top of the list all of my life, but I could never seem to do it. I had great ideas, I had wonderful starts, but then something else came along….work, getting married, having a child, a sick parent…and I lost focus and never finished.

But those were all just excuses, because I still have all of those things in my life yet August 9th I self-published my first book. So at the top of my bucket list now, is to finish my second book. I am 80% finished with the first draft of that one.

I’ve been fortunate and when I think about it, I have most of the things in my life that I want. Not everything, but I’m thankful for that too. There are still things in my bucket list~ Travel internationally, transform into a size 2, write my 10th book, but right now at the top is to finish the second. I’m sure book 3 will work it’s way to the top of the list when book 2 is done.

I never imagined that I would finish book 1. But then I realized that I wasn’t getting any younger (bummer) and that the only person holding me back, was ME. I had stories to tell, and hadn’t yet told them, so I knew that it was time to just sit down and get it done. And I did, one word, one paragraph, and one chapter at a time. Next thing I know, I get to be an Author, and I feel fulfilled and complete but eager for the next challenge.

As for travelling the world and transforming into a size 2….. I think I’ll finish book 2 first and then see what happens 🙂

Chapter 262: 31 Day Blogging Challenge, Day 14

I love this idea about the 31 Day blogging challenge. I think I”m going to do it. I don’t know that I can do 31 days in a row, but I love the challenge so I will do my best. I believe that I already did step one in my original post and the picture is fairly recent, but I will post a more recent one just for fun. I think I am going to skip to day 2 🙂 Thank you Samantha for sharing this!!

When Life Hands You Lemons...

Happy Friday!

Today is Day 14 of the 31-Day Blogging Challenge, which means I’ve hit the 2-week mark! I’m pretty excited about this, because I’m about halfway finished with the whole challenge!

So, today’s challenge is…”If You Won The Lottery”. 

This is actually an interesting question, because my family and I discuss what we would do if we won!

If I won a major amount of money…

I’d probably first pay off my college tuition/loans, because that would relieve my parents of having to pay for it

Fix up my car (I had a minor accident a few weeks ago, which resulted in it needed to be fixed) OR lease/buy a new car (nothing too crazy!)

Buy a new iPod/vinyls

Give money to family/friends (depending on the amount)

Buy a ton of chocolate/other candy

Give some to charities

Pay off my parent’s mortgage/other expenses

Buy a ticket to either California/London/anywhere

Travel…
