Day 25 of 30 day challenge

day 25- Something you would do if no one stopped you or if you knew you wouldn’t fail.

This is a hard question. There are so many things that I’d do if it weren’t for the fear of failure.

I mean THINK about it.

Write a book.
Buy a lottery ticket.
Audition for Broadway.
Go back to school.
Email every online and print magazine known to man and offer my freelance services.
Buy a house.
Go to blogging conferences.

What a great question. What would you do?

Maybe it shouldn’t have to be planned

Am I the only one who can never plan out a fun and fantastic time?

Hello? Bueller?

For years, it has never ever failed – I can make plans for a get together, a party, anything like that – it either winds up as a total dud or it falls miserably short of the hopes I had.

I’ve told myself for a long time that the reasons behind this are that I set my bar too high, I create these scenarios in my head that have little to no chance of actually coming to fruition.

I’m sure you can relate.

But have you ever had one of those nights/parties/events that were totally spontaneous and turned out to be completely amazing? Everything meshed together and formed this perfect harmony and you found yourself wondering what it was that made everything so great?

I totally had one of those weekends this weekend, and now I think I’ve come to the conclusion that most of the time fun just can’t be planned. I mean sure, sometimes plans go off like clockwork, everything turns out amazing.

But most of the time, the memories are made when you don’t expect it at all. And maybe that’s how it should be.
