This weekend D-Money and I are driving to Texas for my cousins wedding. My Cousin and future Mrs. are high school sweethearts and have a beautiful one year old daughter together. I am so excited for this weekend and to celebrate their union. I love hearing about high school sweethearts tying the knot because I feel like it is so uncommon now-a-days.
My cousin and Sweet Dee (I totally stole that from Always Sunny but she is a MUCH better person than the character) have been together for over 10 years but are about to start a new journey in their lives as husband and wife.
Thinking about their new start got me to thinking about my personal journey and growth. I always want to grow as a person and do things that promote a healthy lifestyle so I have decided to start a new journey/adventure every month.
There are nine months left this year and I want to make the most out of them! I plan on doing something that makes me a better me (the ‘me’ I want to be) every month, for a month and hopefully I will make it a habit. After the month is over I will start something new and make that a habit. I have been working on my list of things to do for every month. I figured the blog was the best way to share my journey, hopefully inspire others to join and keep me accountable.
Check out my list below and join the 9 month plan! At the start of every month I will discuss the plan in more detail. Since we are on our way to Texas, I will discuss March later. I hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoys this warm weather!
