Ok, so there is my bucket list. What? Oh, there are 36 things here?! I tried to narrow it down and did some but I then decided that its ok to have more than 30 to do’s on my list and if I accomplish 30 of them – good!, if I do more great! and if I am able to add more to my list – awesome! BRING IT ON!! So, I am ok with having 36 to do’s and who knows maybe I will only accomplish 30 and maybe, just maybe, I will be able to do all 36 before I turn 40!

The next ten years has so much in store for me without even adding this bucket list or blog but I want to make sure I am living life to fullest, experiencing everything I desire and am financially able to experience. Life is a journey, and you can choose to make it exciting and full of passion and wonder sharing your journey with as many people as you can or you can choose to tag along on someone else’s ride. I’m ready to be me – whoever that is!!

And She’s Off……


So, here I am. This picture was taken at the end of April 2013 on a day at the park. This is two months before my 30th birthday and 2 weeks before the biggest eye opening event of my life.

My relationship of 10 years is on the line, divorce filed, getting uglier by the minute thanks to yours truly. My boss had come to me to give me an unconventional proposal which turned out to be a proposal of a lifetime. I was gifted with this amazing opportunity to attend a program to learn how to center my life. Sounds…..normal right? So I decided I would go. Out of this experience I realized the life I had been living is the same one I kept running from. I didnt know who I was or even wanted to be but I knew nothing was going my way.

This blog has been born out of the need to find out who I am, what I like and learning how to live life. I have a lot of years in me and I dont intend to waste anymore.

On June 22, 2013 I will turn 30! I had been scared of this year but I am now so ready for it. I keep hearing how my 30’s will be the age of discovery and learning and I couldnt be more excited. I am happy to say that I am working on mending my relationship rather than divorcing which I never thought would be possible or even something I would want to do – but believe me when I say…..I have never wanted anything more.

So, now was the question, how in the world am I going to start figuring out who I am or what I want? A BUCKET LIST! Im going to post my bucket list of 30 things to complete before my 30’s are over and I will blog along the way, sharing my thoughts, ideas, how well these things go…….or dont go 🙂 No matter how any of turns out, I know that I am going on the best adventure of my life.
