My Summer Bucket List!
As summer approaches, I’ve been thinking a lot about my short-term goals and how I plan to spend the sunny season this year. In June, it will be one year since I finally became self-employed and August will be our 4-year blogiversary. Aside from career accomplishments, I have some personal goals that I want to focus on this summer.
It’s important for me to spend as much time as possible at home during the summer months. The energy in our little beach town when the sun is shining and the water temps rise above 65 degrees is indescribable.
One of the reasons I love living in San Diego is because I’m able to spend so much time with the ocean. I could be having the worst day and all I have to do is hop on my bike and take a ride to the beach — or grab my board and spend a few hours paddling around with the dolphins — and it changes my mood completely.
Because the ocean is my happy place, I think it’s appropriate that almost every item on my summer bucket list involves an ocean activity.
It looks like I’ll be able to check off all of these bucket list items this summer. I’m a little nervous about whether I’ll panic during my first open water dive in Bonaire, but I’ve started meditating so I’ll be better prepared to talk myself out of an anxiety attack in the water. I figure if I can get over my debilitating fear of sharks enough to become a surfer, then I can learn to breathe underwater.
In less than a week, I’m leaving for Panama City Beach with Travel Mindset to check off the summer bucket list items in that destination. Stay tuned for updates and follow along with the hashtag #PCBeachBucketList.
