About Us

About Us. This is a little about me and how I got here. But also this site is About Us. We all have our own ideas and our own ways of living. This is a place to get some new inspiration and new ideas. There may be a different insight here or things you might not have thought about. Most of these pages are written by myself and there are contributions from readers. I welcome those contributions and encourage them! My experiences have brought me here and I am taking a leap of faith and sharing them with the world.

Once upon a time, many years ago, I attended a seminar by a man named John Kalench. This was modeled after a book he wrote about "Being the Best You can Be in MLM". It was only a short while that I spent in that industry but something of that time has always stayed with me. There is a distinction between between goals, one's purpose and becoming your best self. I have been on a growth path for many years and will continue to grow, learn, and become the best person I can be.

The significance of clarifying one's purpose was clearly demonstrated to me at that time. But, it has become clearer each passing year. I have written my purpose down and changed the wording many times. Finally, here I am, sharing with the world, about The Bucket List and the HILL (how I am going to live my life list). The journey has brought me here.

Living your purpose is not something you do, it's about who you are. It's being. In once sense achieving our goals is acknowledgment to ourselves that we are on the right path to becoming the person we want to be. Goals are things we do to get to the person we want to be. Some of these goals are on our bucket list. Some of them aren't. The goals are the doing; the purpose is the being. We are, after all, not human doings, but human beings.

John Kalench says "The power you feel as you get in touch with your purpose is truly incredible. That power is your passion.... A life's purpose is never-ending."

So what does your life's purpose have to do with The Bucket List? I believe the answer to that could be....Everything.

I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, an adventurer, a salesperson, a dancer, a writer, a mother, a negotiator, a counsellor, an organizer, a fun person, a funny person, and much more.

The relationships we have are one of the most important areas of our lives. I believe the best relationships consist of two areas of importance. The one area is that place for fun, laughter and companionship to keep passion alive in your soul. The second area is about valuing growing as a person. It is where you nuture others and inspire other people. They nurture you and inspire you. Together, you grow into your most esteemed selves.

My purpose --

Live Well. Laugh Often. Love with all of your heart.

Monica

Live. Laugh. Love.
