2019 Bucket List

IMG_8275.JPG

As far as years go, 2018 is certainly a tough act to follow. This was a year of life-changing milestones, among them getting married, relaunching Geo’s Table, and completing the first year of my doctoral program in Educational Technology. As the year progressed and my schedule became more open, I took a moment to breathe and reflect. For the first time in my life, I was seeing my dreams and goals actualized, and to be quite frank, it scared me. Instead of recognizing my abundance, I became anxious about the future and my plans. For a period, I spiraled into a state of distress about my life and where it was going.

Through the support and encouragement of my phenomenal husband, family, and friends, I spent the latter part of 2018 beginning a personal journey grounded in mental and physical well being. I recognized the power in sharing my story, and receiving others’ experience with an open heart and mind. I recognized now how honoring my fears has been a necessary step in moving forward and has helped me in making space for new opportunities and challenges.

As I move into 2019, I plan to use the self work of 2018 as a springboard. Geo’s Table has always been a therapeutic outlet for me, and this year will be no different. For 2019, instead of a bucket list of places to try, or travel adventures, my focus is on Geo’s Table, and following a simple mantra: Move forward.

2018 revealed to me that a year, a month and even a moment or experience can challenge you or take your life in new or more interesting directions. So in the spirit of moving forward, I present my 2019 bucket list. It is my hope that other bloggers and content creators might decide to join me in my conquest, as I check-off each bucket list item, and expand Geo’s Table into new territory.
