31 Day Reset – Day 30 – My eulogy

I am participating in the 31 Day Reset which is a life coaching challenge hosted by Rosetta Thurman on her blog Happy Black Woman. So far I have really been enjoying the challenge and I hope that you enjoy following me along on this challenge. If you are interested in doing the challenge, click here.

I am way overdue for completing this exercise. To be honest I did not know what to say about myself. I tried writing my eulogy four different times and it just did not come out right. I decided that this is not the exercise for me. I have enjoyed most of the exercises in this challenge but not this one. Sorry to disappoint.

31 Day Reset – Day 29 – Get your “side hustle” on

I am participating in the 31 Day Reset which is a life coaching challenge hosted by Rosetta Thurman on her blog Happy Black Woman. So far I have really been enjoying the challenge and I hope that you enjoy following me along on this challenge. If you are interested in doing the challenge, click here.

For this exercise I am supposed to develop a side hustle that will generate more money on the side. Every so often I may sell unwanted items on eBay to make a few dollars but nothing very serious. Basically this will be a short blog post because a side hustle is not what I intend to do now. I do not have the time or the want to start a side hustle. I am a full-time student at the University that I work for and I also work full-time, have 3 dogs and a family to care for. Education is my current side hustle with the result creating my main hustle of a career in counseling.

31 Day Reset – Day 28 – Caring for SELF

During this challenge I have thought about how I want to take care of myself better. I even uploaded a video on my YouTube Channel discussing how I wanted to be  more positive 2012. Below is my self-care plan that I hope to start this month.

1. Go to bed earlier or change to a later work shift

2. Walk 20-30 minutes a day or go to the gym for 30 mins a day

3. Read for pleasure

4. Focus on school more

5. Restrict my YouTube time

6. Write my thoughts in my journal

7. Read a Bible verse daily

8. Start therapy again

This will be a work in progress. I know that I will not be doing these things immediately but gradually I will be doing these things to take care of myself.

31 Day Reset – Day 27 – Go out on a date..with yourself!

I am participating in the 31 Day Reset which is a life coaching challenge hosted by Rosetta Thurman on her blog Happy Black Woman. So far I have really been enjoying the challenge and I hope that you enjoy following me along on this challenge. If you are interested in doing the challenge, click here.

The exercise for today is to take yourself out on a date after evaluating the 100 things that make you happy. The main goal is to find an activity and do it ALONE! This exercise is not going to be easy because I do not have the time or opportunity to go on a date with myself. So here is my plan for a “date” with myself and hopefully one day while driving home from work I can execute this plan.

I hope that tomorrow I can stop by the Gym on my way home from work. I will work out for 30 minutes and then go sit in the Sauna for 15 minutes. Once I finish with my time at the gym, I will come home and shower. Then I will run a hot bath and soak in it for about 30 minutes while reading a book. My date with myself will be over after my bath. I really enjoy soaking in the tub while reading, it helps me to relax and  I end up sleeping better when its time to go to bed. This does not sound like much but it is a lot for me that I plan to enjoy this week.
