My New Year Bucket List

I am so sorry #SpunkyDivaTribe!!! I have to admit that I’ve been in a writing rut…that’s worse than writer’s block. I have had no desire to write or blog lately. My day job has my stress levels through the roof lately! So, my #SelfCare has become top priority.

However…I hate that I didn’t keep my word and post my own responses to this image. I didn’t really make any New Year’s resolutions for 2019. I do have a “theme” or "#WordoftheYear or “mantra word” - whatever you want to call it. My word for 2019 is “FOCUS”. I will write a separate blog post on that soon…I PROMISE I WILL! And, as you probably know by now…this year’s theme for SpunkyDiva Diaries is #SELF-CARE!

I was hoping some of you would write in and let me know what your responses were for this, but so far no one has shared (and that’s OK too!).

Here are my responses to this “New Year Bucket List”…

  1. Read: I’d like to read at least 10 books this year from author’s I’ve never read before - Brene Brown, Iyanla Vanzant, Sylvester McNutt III, etc.

  2. Visit: I’m going to visit at least 3 places I’ve never been to before.

  3. Be: I want to “BE” a true influencer, motivator and inspiration to women.

  4. Make: I am going to make better time for ME. #SelfCare comes 1st!

  5. Eat: I am really going to try to eat healthier, especially more veggies!

  6. Do: I am going to be more selective in what I “DO” meaning not over commit or extend myself so much that I’m running myself ragged.

  7. Try: I am going to try to be more patient with myself and my body’s limitations with what it can and can’t do anymore.

  8. Enjoy: I am going to enjoy every moment in my life and the people I allow in it.

  9. Watch: I am going to watch Game of Thrones and probably cry when it’s over!

  10. Learn: I want to learn how to use Canva or Pic Monkey to create awesome branded graphics for SpunkyDiva Diaries.

  11. Cook: I am going to learn how to cook some new, healthy dishes that I’ve never done and expand my culinary skills.

  12. See: *I need to think about this one a bit…

  13. Clean Out: I will clean out and reorganize all my kitchen cabinets. (I’ve already done every nook and cranny of my apartment. Kitchen is all that’s left!)

  14. Dream About: I dream about being DEBT FREE - paying off my 2 large credit cards, school loans and car off.

  15. Add To: My goal is to add to my savings account and big jug of loose change that I collect.

  16. Get Rid Of: I will get rid of things and people in my life which no longer serve me or bring me peace.

  17. Be Grateful For: I will be grateful for every breath I take, every day I see…for my journey, my story and everything I have in my possession because I am truly blessed.

  18. Work For: I will work for the building of my SpunkyDiva Diaries brand and strive turn my passion of helping women into a business.

  19. Wish For: I wish for new adventures, milestone accomplishments, and ever better health.

  20. Remember: I will remember to protect my peace at all costs.
