The (not so secret) Life of Me

2014_10_ 1_12_ 1Hey y’all! Welcome to Making Life Beautiful!

Maybe you’ve stopped by via The Nester’s 31 Days Challenge? Awesome! This month I’m putting myself out there and letting y’all get to know me! (And I’m a bit nervous, because there’s a lot of people out there in the blogging world-will you like me?!? I guess we’ll see!)

I don’t know if it is lazy or daring to spend a month talking about myself. I mean, I should be the easiest topic to write on since I should know myself better than anything else.

Well, I don’t think we’ll go deep into the craziness of my mind this month but you’ll definitely get to know me better (and you should comment or link to your own blog so I can get to know you too!)


Also I may be a little crazy taking on this challenge this year because I just started a new job at Baylor’s Library, like yesterday. Oh, and I have another interview today for a different part time job not to mention all my normal Nanny gigs. But the past two years I really enjoyed this blogging challenge as it help me grow as a writer and to just simply feel a sense of accomplishment when I finished.

So what is my purpose this month (because it’s always good to have a goal!)? First, to write everyday-it’s harder than it might seem! Second, to be honest with myself and you. Third, to enjoy this challenge and not measure my success by blog stats.

  1. You are a busy girl Becca!! Hope you like your new job! I’m still on the fence as to whether I can take the 31 day challenge…. i’m such a fly by the seat of my pants girl! But I’ll definitely enjoy learning about you! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    1. Thanks Heather! My first day went well!
      October is the only month I’m really consistent with blogging because of this challenge. 🙂 I hope you can do the challenge, or maybe something different and fun this month!
