Worth It! (Things to try, read, watch, hear, and discuss)

bitmoji-20181110095456

So here’s another off-schedule post, because today was my last work day until after Christmas. Yay! The past few weeks have been seriously busy, and I’m super excited about having some time to take care of “non-business business” (aka “stuff I want to do”). Here’s what’s currently on my agenda:

  • Drink coffee on the patio, even though I’ll probably have to bundle up.
  • Keep implementing my favorite acts of kindness.
  • Catch up on my reading. I have five books waiting.
  • Host one more low stress holiday event (see this post for tips on the “low stress” part).
  • WatchΒ The Man Who Invented Christmas, which hit my “must watch” list after I read Charles French’s recommendation.
  • Spend a day with my best girlfriend, and do at least one thing we haven’t tried before (an annual tradition).
  • Go to the movies.
  • Get ahead of the game on content creation for my Instagram.
  • Spend time with my family.
  • Organize my thoughts and plans for this blog.
  • Go out to dinner.
  • Finish my semi-annual house decluttering.
  • Bake a cake.

What’s on your agenda for the next week or so? Any suggestions for things I should do with my days off? Let me know in the comments!

    You might think I’m crazy but I just want to go sit in the woods and listen to the wind blow through the pines.

    For the next two days I’ll be trying to get everything planned and organized to have a stress free Christmas. I have some baking to do too. I’ll have to check out The Man Who Invented Christmas. I hope you enjoy your vacation.

      So far it’s been great (despite a few gift wrapping misadventures…I might have to post that story at some point).
      Really excited about today-I’m meeting my best friend in less than two hours, and we’ve planned an entire day of activities.

        Amanda, I hope you enjoyed your day with your friend. I am meeting a friend for Yoga today and then a Christmas craft. It’s nice to mix up the routine every once in a while.

        It was an AMAZING day! I’ll be posting sometime in the next few weeks about a fun activity we tried. I hope your day with your friend is as awesome as mine was. πŸ™‚
