Overcoming The Loser Spirit: Outlining Your Life-Long Pursuits (Lesson #17)

Congratulations! We made it to the final lesson in "Overcoming The Loser Spirit Series".  

What does the rest of our journey away from the Loser Spirit look like? 

Are we taking the necessary steps to cut ties or at the very least, loosen the bonds which are currently tying us  to toxic people/situations?

The answers to the above-mentioned questions may not be immediately clear to us. Shifts in our perspective take time to take hold in our lives. This is why it is important to have an outline of the type of life we want to lead.  

Creating a life outline does not have to be a huge and complicated undertaking. We can start by jotting down  5-10 hobbies that we enjoy doing. Next, we write a brief history on how those hobbies came into our lives. Finally, we write a brief summary on how we plan to integrate these hobbies into the rest of our lives. 

Granted, some of our hobbies may not take us into middle age or our golden years. For example, if we are avid cross country skiers, we may have to slow down as we get older due to health complications. Perhaps, we can take our passion and pour it into sponsoring the younger generation of  cross-country skiers or creating products which will benefit the industry as a whole.

On the other hand, we may pick up a new hobby in middle-age which we will be able to enjoy during our golden years.

Either way, now is the time to outline our  life-long pursuits. 

Exercise #1:
  • Write down where you want to be in 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years from now. 
  • Write down how you are going to achieve these goals.
  •  Write down why these goals are important to you.

I am committed to taking the necessary steps to honor the life-long pursuits in my life. I acknowledge that these life-long pursuits may change with the seasons of my life. However, I  realize  each pursuit that leaves my life, another one will arrive in its place.

Bougie Girl Univeristy:Building A Room On A Budget-Paint Is My New BFF

Over the years, I have had a love-hate relationship with paint. In my prior experiences, painting projects never quite turned out right. Either I slathered too much paint on an object or not enough. As my income increased, so did my tendency to avoid DIY painting projects of any kind.

My living room decor is comprised of red, black, and white. However, my TV stand/entertainment center did not coordinate with my living at all. I contemplated replacing it with a black one. But, the comparable ones were a couple hundred dollars. I ruled out searching Craigslist and other secondhand resources due to lack of time. 
As time wore on, it became clearer to me that my best option in this scenario was to paint this piece of furniture black. Luckily, I have a fenced in backyard and a seemingly never-ending roll of plastic sheeting which has acted as a barrier between my project and the patio.

Here is my list of  suggestions for spray painting furniture:
