Today’s Challenge: Write down my perfect day (in present tense) from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep.


I absolutely love waking up in this giant canopy bed. Catching glimpses of the mountains outside the window in while the gentle, and slightly cool, breeze runs through the sheer curtains hanging from the bed is an amazing way to start the day.

I roll over and enjoy having the large bed all to myself. Of course, Bryan woke up hours ago and has probably already gotten his morning work-out in.

I slowly, and somewhat unwillingly, make my way out of bed and head onto the porch that extends off the master suite of our log home in the mountains of Colorado.

The creek below and the wildlife stirring in the woods is the perfect soundtrack for going over my to-do list today.

Confirm our flights and Airbnb rental for our trip to Paris next week

Confirm the bookings for the retreat in Italy next month

Start making inquiries calls to the locations I researched yesterday for the retreat in Bali in a few months

Call Chris back to let him know I would be more than thrilled to present at the next World Domination Summit

Call my animal sanctuary for the daily status update

Buy gifts for my one-on-one clients who’ll be completed their programs with me in the next month

Book flight for my monthly visit to the sanctuary

Research flights/hotels for my speaking engagement in Costa Rica

Record this week’s solo podcast episode and send it off to my VA

Spend at least one hour writing my non-fiction novel

I head downstairs to the kitchen to grab a quick bite to eat before heading into my office where I open the windows so I can smell the pine and the water from the creek while I get to work.

After just a couple of hours, I’ve checked off almost all the items on the list and head back upstairs to change.

Bryan and I decided yesterday to take advantage of the amazing weather we’re having by taking a hike to our favorite meadow next to the creek and having a picnic.

When I come downstairs he’s already gotten our lunch and hiking packs on the counter and is, as usual, just waiting on me.

The mile hike into the forest is actually pretty easy and always a perfect break in the middle of the day. Sitting the little meadow, I laugh to myself when I compare my lunch break now to when I worked in the corporate world. Three years after leaving my last corporate job and it still gives me anxiety just thinking about the lifestyle.

After the peaceful hike back Bryan heads out to the archery range we have built in our back yard and I head back to my office.

As usual, I end up coming up with about 15 more things to do as I work but managed to finish up in time to join Bryan on porch for an amazing dinner he’s cooked. I honestly have no idea how I got so lucky with him!

After dinner we snuggle up with our two pups on the couch and catch up on a few episodes of the current show we’re sucked into on Netflix.

At about 10pm we decide to call it quits for the night and all cuddle under the amazing down comforter on our bed. As we sometimes do late at night, Bryan and I start talking and, before we know it, three hours have gone by and we can barely hold our eyes open anymore.

He softly leans over and kisses me on the forehead before telling me goodnight. I give the dogs one more scratch behind the ears and drift into a blissful sleep.
