Life is made up of hills, valleys, and plateaus. I’m here to share some of my successes and failures so that someone else’s journey maybe a little easier.
I would be remiss if I didn’t admit that I missed last Monday’s post. It was the first Monday in 63 weeks that I missed publishing something. Part of me is a little embarrassed. The other part recognizes that I should have planned better and created a post in advance. The rest of me isn’tContinue reading “Event Planning: Part 1 – The Background”
It’s Monday morning, July 5, 2021, and one of the first things I did this morning was go back to read the blog I published about the 4th of July from last year. It was a recap of the fun we had with friends. I shared a little about my brother’s accident, and I alsoContinue reading “4th of July Reflections”
I am the kind of person that likes to set myself up for success, and in order to be successful, I need a plan. I am often envious of those who are able to “fly-by-the-seats-of-their-pants”. Knowing that I am not one of those people, planning is key for me. If you read my blog lastContinue reading “No Social Success”
When people talk about taking a break from social media, it’s usually because of something negative. For example, I know people who didn’t log into social media platforms during the election. The hate and discontent was just too much. I also know a lot of people who have given up Facebook for Lent – theContinue reading “Social Media Hiatus”
I didn’t read the book for my leadership book club, and I showed up unapologetically to discuss it. Actually, I mostly just listened to the discussion because the other readers had intriguing and interesting insights. For the first time EVER, I felt like I could still show up even though I hadn’t even attempted toContinue reading “Books, Books, Books”
If you read my blog, you will know that I completed a big run goal last month. Most of the goal was actually done on April 17th (The Intent not the Goal – Monday Morning with Mona), but we felt the need to finish running the island on May 12th (Finishing What We Started –Continue reading “Back to Training”
This past week has been a whirlwind! It involved a change in my husband’s job that created a lot of excitement and pride. Then I prepared for the holiday weekend, which meant a lot of shopping and cooking. We knew we’d see several friends at several points in time, but with a come-and-go as youContinue reading “Memorial Day”
I don’t remember learning how to ride a bike, but I do remember the freedom that it brought as I could explore my neighborhood in ways that I had not been able to do as a little kid on foot. I have seen video after video of dads holding onto the back of a bicycleContinue reading “Learning to Paddle”
We started our traverse on April 17th at 5:00am, and after 22 hours and 11 minutes, and covering 70 miles, we called it quits. We felt good about our accomplishment. We had been up for almost 24 hours, and it felt acceptable to get in cars and to go home. On May 11th, we decidedContinue reading “Finishing What We Started”
This will be the 55th weekly post to my Monday Morning With Mona’s site, which means that I have come to the blog every week for a year to share a little something. This also means I have consistently shown up to do something that is usually fun, and other times a pain in theContinue reading “Blog-versary”
