Fear Punch Friday: Pills, Pills, Pills

pills

One of the fears I’ve recently overcome is that of swallowing pills. I mean, how could I have been so afraid of something so tiny (except those two horse pills, amiright??)? This is how…

Dude, You’re So Weird.

It’s been a reoccurring theme in my life the past few years to be totally weird. Here’s one definition of what that means:

weird  (wîrd)
adj. weird·er, weird·est

  1. Of, relating to, or suggestive of the preternatural or supernatural.
  2. Of a strikingly odd or unusual character; strange.
  3. Archaic Of or relating to fate or the Fates.

However, I think it looks a bit more like this!

Pet Sitting: Week 2

Screen Shot 2013-08-19 at 5.40.48 AM

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to watch another home as a way to add more momentum to our debt snowball and more cute dog photos to my Instagram. It was more of a staycation because there was one dog named Mallory and a lot of plants to water (yes, Mallory liked being watered, too!). There was also another fun pool that needed to be used. :) Continue reading

NEW SERIES: Fear Punch Friday!

Since beginning to read Jon Acuff’s START book and participating in The Start Experiment, I’ve learned to recognize when fear runs its dirty mouth inside my head.

It spits out nasty things like this: Continue reading

Hello, friends!

The Start Experiment, Round 2 officially began 4 days ago and what an adventure it’s already been! The theme for us #startalum from Round 1 is “Audacious.” That looks like a fun fancy word, but what does it mean?

30 Seconds to May

30SMobile header(via)

Last night I read a really interesting post by author Donald Miller called “How to Tell Your Story in 30 Seconds.” It’s about providing a CliffsNotes answer when someone says “tell me about yourself” or “what do you do.” It’s about doing it in such a way that you form a story, rather than a list of facts. I believe it also helps you add “why” to your “what.” More on that theory here.

So, without further ado, here’s my 30 Seconds to May:

My name is May Bohon. In 2010 God blessed my life by putting a mirror up to how horribly I handled the money He entrusted to me. Since then, I’ve fought my way out of debt, discovered joy in giving, lead personal finance classes and started taking steps towards working for Dave Ramsey so I can turn my passion into a career!

That was fun. :)

Your turn: What’s your 30-second story? What will it be 5 years from now?

Final thought: If you don’t conclude your story with an “!”, then is it really the story you want to tell?

Pet Sitting: Week 1

If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that last week I had the opportunity to take care of 3 dogs, 1 cat and 7-ish fish. As an animal lover, watching fur babies for extra money is a no-brainer! It’s kind of like going on a stay-cation with pay (win/win).

Below is a rundown of the entertainment:

Tip Time!

Happy Friday, friends!

I had a fun time with yesterday’s #StartExp assignment from Jon:

Day 18: Tip Time

One of the best things at the 5 club meetings we do in Nashville is the “Tip Time.” For a few minutes, I open the floor and folks shout out tips that have helped them along the way. Some people share apps. Some people share books. Some people share exercise ideas. It’s a “this worked for me” free for all. Today, I want you to share one tip you’ve had success with in the Facebook group.

I shared what first came to mind on the Facebook page and wanted to share them in the blogosphere as well! :) Continue reading
