I am very excited to bring you today’s guest post by my good friend, the “ahhh-mazing” Natalie Hartford. She’s an urban redneck; a cross-breed of city girl and redneck. She loves high heels, bling, all things pink and sparkly along with ball caps, 4X4ing, camping, and drinkin’ beer. She often mistakes tacky for fahbulous! She’s also a writer just starting out in the adventure of novel writing and has been blogging for about a year and a half. She entertains me with posts such as women peeing standing up, Twisted Tuesday fun with stuff like sunglasses that rock my beer or a new trailer hitch stripper pole, and her Urban Word Wednesdays where she teaches us words like masturcising and vajazzle.
I am super excited to be here Jessica, thanks so much for having me at your digs. It’s so fun and fresh here. The color just picks my mood up and sets me on my way!
This January instead of making a New Year’s resolution, I made a quit list. My quit list included a number of things I want to stop doing in order to become more productive in my life. I am determined to stay focused and centered on my priorities this year! And although I love my quit list, I am a strong believe in what you focus on grows so I decided to make a Love List as well. You know, gotta cover my bases from every angle of the karma spectrum!
My Love List is a compilation of things I’d love to do or start doing in 2012. When I started my Love List, I eliminated roadblocks and dream killers. This isn’t a list I’ll be accountable to and I won’t be crossing things off or feeling guilty about undone tasks at the end of the year.
On the contrary, I plan on adding things to my Love List while removing other things throughout the year because I want my Love List to grow, change, and flourish with me. It’s a reflection of who I am, my dreams and my inner most goals. I plan on using my Love List to fuel my creativity by being a constant reminder of what is most important in my life.
My 2012 Love List:
- Learn Spanish
- Read writing craft books
- Take some online writing courses
- Read a lot of fiction in a variety of genre
- Travel to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
- Walk the dog more often
- Eat healthy and exercise more
- Rework my office so it reflects me and my writing
- Do more spontaneous romantic gestures to hubby
- Be a great friend
- Make new friends
- Be a supportive blogger
- Take time for me
- Learn to meditate
- Write a book
- Have as much fun as possible
- Learn to snowmobile
- Be authentic and honest
- Enjoy more compassion
- Do meaningful work
- Learn a new hobby (like Jessica learning archery – sooo cool and such an inspiration)
What would you really love to do in 2012 (and beyond)? Have you made a Love List before? Will you?
Thank you again for having me Jessica! It’s been fun!
