A Single Girls Diary : Summer Bucket List

At 26 years old, I realized I haven’t done much lately. Truth be told I’m getting older not younger and with young people dying more often then older folks these days and for the sake of having an actual life, I decided to make myself a bucket list this summer. With only about 3 weeks left of Summer I’m actually proud to say I accomplished much of what I wanted to get done! Below is my bucket list for summer and in a few week I’ll be posting my fall bucket list. What are some things you would love to do? What do you feel is stopping you? How can you change that or is it even a real issue? In my case my issue was/is money. As a single mom, especially now not currently not working, I felt as if I had more important things to do and that I have to focus on ways to get this paper. Yet what I’m learning to do is be totally dependent on God. His word says that he shall supply all my needs and he would not see his seed begging bread. If these scriptures are true and I state I believe them then why do I walk around as if I am not a royal priesthood? Now I’m not saying neglect responsibilities and just have fun all the time, I am saying enjoy this life God gave you. His word says that you he would have us prosper and be in good health even as our soul prospers, It’s impossible for the soul of you to prosper or for you to be in good health if you are always stressed and or never take time to enjoy the beauties planted around you. So I decided this summer I would learn how to save money, pick and choose which events I just had to be at and take advantage of all things free in NYC (THERE ARE SO MANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!). Hopefully you see something on here that makes you want to get up and go out or maybe you’ve had a bomb summer and feel I need to add something to my list feel free to comment below!

Summer Bucket List 2015

  • Visit Mikey Like’s It Ice Cream
    • I found out about the place via a friend of mine, who did an event with them when I say this place is THE BOMB.com, I tell you no lie. A great spot for a late night stroll with you boo pick up your mac daddy ice cream sandwich (I recommend the blue velvet waffles (thank me later) or even a fun day out with the kids or a group of friends. My friend from church and myself went alongside my daughter and her 3 god children. At about 7 bucks a sandwich, they are well worth it. Mikey Lies It servers freshly make your waffles for your sandwich while you choose a flavor named after your favorite 80-‘s or 90’ pop or hip hop act. If you blessed enough you’ll get to try the flavor of the month! This is definitely a spot I’ll be back to a few times within the next weeks and far after!
