Let me start off by saying I wanted to make this post public but in light of current events, a blog post seems so insignificant. I am overwhelmed by the natural disasters, and the people who are affected by Hurricane Irma are in my thoughts and prayers.
Anyway, here’s to the last of my 25 before 25 series:
21. Clean out my closet and purchase a luxury item
I have clothes in my closet that I literally have not worn in years, but I keep them “just in case.” There is a lack of plus size clothing at places like the Salvation Army so I know there are lots of people who would benefit from me donating some of my lightly worn clothes. As motivation to clean out my closet, I want to purchase a luxury item. I have my eyes on something, but we will see if I decide to splurge on myself.
22. Go on a no reason trip
I did this multiple times. Honestly, I really did not need to make this a goal Anyone who knows me know that I take every opportunity I can for a random trip.
23. Take myself to dinner & a movie
Being intentional about spending time with myself is so important to me. As an introvert constantly being around people can be so draining. So this goal although it’s to take myself out, just spending time alone doing something that I enjoy is the real goal.
24. Fit in Mint Swim
Draya is goals. Her body is goals, and so are her swimsuits. Once I achieve my goal of losing 25 pounds, I will be able to fit one of her regular sized swimsuits. I have my eye on the “Yaya, ” but it’s currently sold out.
25. Plan an epic girls trip to celebrate my 25th birthday
I don’t think I have ever done anything special to celebrate my birthday. The past few years my birthday came and went like a regular day. This year I wanted to do something big since I’ll be a quarter of a century! My girls and I are going to Cancun on Thursday…that’s of course if Irma, Jose, and all the other natural disasters decide to chill!
This week’s shoutout goes to Chalcia. She has been helping people locate their family members who have been affected by Irma. She is the real MVP for getting confirmation that my best friend’s cousin was safe and sound.
As always, thanks for reading.
