25 More Things I Did Before Turning 25


When I finished my first list, I realized there were more things I wanted to include, so I made a second list.

It is nice to reminisce about the big and small, the fun, the accomplishing, and the brave things I have done in my life. There are many of these that I had forgotten about or rarely think about up until I started proactively thinking about points to add to the list. Even if you haven’t traveled far, I am sure many of you can sit down and think about many things you have overcome or felt proud of in your life, even if it was a small thing in the eyes of others. I invite you to make your own list and do it either privately or share it.

So here’s my next 25: Continue reading “25 More Things I Did Before Turning 25”

Forget about New Year’s Resolutions. This year, I’m making a Fuck It List.


I am not one for sitting down and writing down my New Year Resolutions or even thinking about them. If I ever did make some as a teenager, I don’t remember ever achieving them. I gave up long time ago, mostly because I don’t care that much. I’m pretty okay with how I have and am living my life.

So in honor of that, this year I am making a “Fuck It List” and I invite you to do the same.  Continue reading “Forget about New Year’s Resolutions. This year, I’m making a Fuck It List.”

Embracing Discomfort & What Is A Growth List?


Apparently comfort is for lazy asses and kittens.

Apparently comfort doesn’t buy happiness.

Apparently as humans, we were never meant to be constantly comfortable, because our cavemen ancestors really weren’t.

According to Dennis Corsi’s post, comfort is overrated and the statements above are true. He says that in comfort there is no sense of adventure or living life at its fullest. I’m not completely sure if I agree with any of the above, but it made me think.

I mean… If given the (free) choice, I will always prefer flying in First Class than Economy. I’ll embrace the adventure once I land, thanks. Continue reading “Embracing Discomfort & What Is A Growth List?”
