Hello! My name is T.B.M and welcome to my blog. The inspiration for this blog was the fact that I needed to refocus my negative energy into positive thoughts and inspiration. I felt that I was dwelling too much on the aspects of my life that I didn’t like, such as my job, doing chores, paying bills…I want to focus on the happy aspects of my life and pursue interests that I enjoy and that reinvigorate and challenge me. I don’t want to wake up to my alarm each morning and think to myself: ugh…I hate going to work! So I decided to change things up a little bit. Make my life more exciting and new. I narrowed down 3 things that I really enjoy doing: traveling, reading, and watching movies. This blog will be about my pursuit of visiting 192 countries, reading 1001 books, and watching the top 100 movies before I die. The postings will include thoughts and feelings about the books and movies and experiences from past travels and future travels to keep me inspired and focused on the fun aspects of my life. I don’t want to bog down my mind with negativity, but want to remind myself that going to work allows me to pursue my goals. Also I will post photos from my travels and experiences to remind me what all the hard work is for. All of the photos that are posted are from my personal collection.
Here are the rules:
Books: I have to read all the books from the list, in no particular order, even if I have read them in the past.
Movies: I have to watch all of the movies starting from 100 to 1.
Travel: I have to visit all of the countries on the 192 list. However, before starting this challenge I have been to 10 countries and I do not have to travel to the nations again in order to complete my goal. Of course this doesn’t mean that I won’t visit them again.
I hope you enjoy following me on this quest to be happy and centered on the good.
