Month of Me: Birthday Bucket List


Last year I celebrated my birthday a month of me. The #monthofme was a celebration of another year of life as I entered year 33.

My year is not usually synced with the start of a new year in January like most but instead with a new year of life for me which is my birthday. My desire is to change my birthday from being a time when I reflect on all that I haven’t accomplished to a time when I am excited about the accomplishments of the year past and focused on continuing the growth in to the year ahead.

I created a birthday bucket list of things I wanted to do and enjoy during my birthday month. Even though I did not accomplish all of my checklist items, I had a great month with friends and learned a lot. (Read the recap here)

Well it’s officially May again and I have decided to make the #monthofme an annual celebration. Just like last year I have created a birthday bucket list which includes things I want to see, do and experience this month. This list is intended to bring me closer to accomplishing many of my personal and professional goals. I desire to have fun along the way and I would love for you to join me in my month of me activities.
