Mightier Than Ever

Enlightened in Palm Springs

I returned from Camp Mighty late last night. I'm still processing all the new ideas I heard and the incredible people I met. I need to do some sorting out before I can write it out for you, but I will tell you that something major happened to me this weekend. I don't know how to describe it exactly, but there as been a shift. And I'm excited, and when I finally get some sleep I'll be energized too.

I've been talking about Camp Mighty so much that I don't want to completely leave you hanging... At Camp we selected five items from our Life Lists that we will try to accomplish in the upcoming year. We were assigned teams, shared our five goals, and asked our team for help and support to complete them.

I ask for that same support from all of you. And in return I'll do what I can to help you achieve your goals. One of the most powerful messages I took away from this weekend is that we don't have to conquer everything alone. In fact, it is a whole lot more fun to do it together.
The lovely necklace we each received. Each ring represents one of our five goals for the year.

So here is what I hope to, nay will do this year:
  • Do a pull up
  • Find a blogging mentor
  • Go to Colorado
  • Plan a stress-free wedding
  • Record every book I read, with a quote
While some these things may not seem particularly hard or deep, they all hold meaning for me. And I'm pumped about focusing on them and looking forward to sharing them with you.

Song of the Day
This weekend was a lot about self-reflection. Lets get punny! and enjoy Michael Jackson's Man in the Mirror.


  1. I used an app called Listomni to record the books I read every year, and then update them on Goodreads (which also has an app but it isn't that amazing) as and when I find time.

    I love being able to look back over what I've read, it's fantastic. It's also made me focus more on reading for pleasure because I can see how many books I've read instead of assuming I've read 50 when really it's 28.

    Good luck with your goals this year :)


  2. I too use Good Reads and I will have to look into Listomni now.

    Anna - you KNOW even though I wasn't on your team officially at Camp, I am on Team Anna. Whatever you need - just ask!


  3. Hi Anna - A couple of years ago I began keeping a list of all the books I have read but I love your idea of keeping track with a quote from each one too. This is my first time to your blog but I look forward to poking around and I wish you all the best with your goals for the upcoming year.
