I have just 6 months left in my 40 before 40 Challenge I created for myself. I have completed 11 of the 40 and am working weekly on several others. Yet, others, I haven't even started. But, if I don't have something to work towards and be held accountable to, I may never have accomplished any of these to begin with. If you haven't seen my list, click on the banner above, or click HERE. To find out why I wanted to create this Challenge, click HERE.
I am already thinking about what I am going to do when I actually turn 40. What new things do I want to do, work on, create, complete? I have some ideas!
I just don't want to be that person who wakes up one morning and says, "Who am I?" "What am I doing with my life?" I may not have a career or wake up every morning with a plan or focus for my day, but I do (usually) wake up happy, blessed, and thankful to be here. Ultimately, isn't that enough? We don't know what the future holds, but I certainly am going to try to live each day with a spring in my step and a smile on my face.
On this blog you will find book and product reviews as well as tips and snippets from our life in small-town Iowa. As a married mom of 3, I keep plenty busy with their activities. In my spare time, I substitute teach, volunteer in our community, read, play scrabble,and drink wine. I also write for the Cedar Rapids Gazette.
This blog offers reviews as well as giveaways. Each post will explain the compensation related to that review and/or giveaway. There are also various links on this website that are part of an affiliate program. I may receive compensation based on purchases through that link. Everthing on my site offers items that either I or my family could benefit from. I wouldn't offer anything that we wouldn't use or enjoy ourselves.
