Weekly Wishes & Grad-itude

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Rise and shine! It's Sunday :-)  Today I am sharing my Weekly Wishes (& linking up with Melyssa on Monday)  and sharing my Grad-itude (& linking up with Erika on Wednesday)
--Last Week's Weekly Wishes:
To be honest - I sucked at the health part.  I was good about portions but I did not PREP A THING to take for lunches.  I did okay though - with portion control.  Next week I'll have my step-son so it'll probably go smoother (always more responsible when we have him every other week).

I could not be any more pleased with my blog this week.  It was simply an awesome week.  I finally started selling my sponsorships (25% off with code: AUG25), and have my first two sponsors (see sidebar!).  Also - everyone really enjoyed the printables from Friday which is fantabulous!!
 And then there is this little tweet that MADE MY DAYYYYYY!!!!!

Lastly, today I received an email for an AMAZING opportunity to further spread my passion and message to people and I am so honored that I was even considered.  Hopefully I'll be able to share it soon!

The 'ol consulting business took a little back burner this week.  Not to fret though - I just need to take some pictures for the home page and kinda need to be "on location" for that.

-- This Week's Weekly Wish?
You know the drill! Keep it STUPID SIMPLE.  It takes 4 weeks (maybe 21 days, I forget) back to four weeks (plus another for the health one, or do I have to start all over since I took this one off?) to solidify a habit.  And so my weekly wishes (for the third week in a row) are remaining the same.  I'm going to keep on keepin' on and nothing is going to stop me!

GRAD-ITUDE 101: A Linkup By Chimerikal

--Last week's Grad-itutde:
As I kinda mentioned up above things could not have gone any better than it did this week for the blog.  And for that I am truly thankful.  Friday - all the love that was spread with people retweeting my sponsor tweets or retweeting my blog posts - even tweeting them on their own accord.  It was really an awesome experience and I am so elated by it.  It was really nice to know that one of my mentors (she doesn't know it though, Melyssa)  actually went through my blog and pick out the things she did for my sponsor post, as well as tweet about my series on her twitter.  And then Melissa Stewart (what's up with the Melyssa's?) who I have looked up to for ages on Twitter (I think I sent her a compliment just once and she thanked me; but I stalk her and favorite all her tweets to read later) randomly posts my Finding Your Passion: Your Story post just about flabbergasted me!  What a humbling experience.  This week - I want to practice giving that back.  Just out of the blue tweets sending love just because!

Have a good week yall!! Come back tomorrow for a continuation of the Living Your Passionate Life series (we're going to talk about being in the moment!)  See you then.

xoxo, Aukele

  10. Seriously, Aukele...it's only been a DAY and you have been a complete and utter Twitter Promoting SUPERSTAR! I made a great choice by sponsoring such an awesome lady :) That's awesome that so many people have taken positively to your passion series...I absolutely loved it and think that it was the perfect choice for you! I think that if you do what you love people will notice your talent and feel extra compelled to share. :)

  16. I was crazy happy when I saw that Friday morning!!! Thank you Crystal. I love that, "major snaps". I might borrow it a couple of times, ok?!

  17. Being promoted by someone you look up to is definitely a great thing :) I'm so happy for you and everything that is going on with your blog!

  18. This is all kinds of wonderful! I love that you mentioned how LONG it takes to solidify a habit. Habit is SO important to building positive lifestyles, but I don't think we talk about it or think about it enough. I'm also SO HAPPY that you liked your feature so much! I had a ball going through your archives and truly love your recent series about building a passionate life. It reminds me of a series I started my blog with called "Good Livings." I had worksheets and things too and it was really fun. And blogging mentor? Get out of town girl, you're making me smile. :)

  19. It sounds like you've had a pretty positive week with some awesome opportunities coming your way!
    I didn't know it took 4 weeks to solidify a habit, I'm definitely going to have to make sure I'm completely all my goals for a minimum of 4 weeks running to see if I can make this happen for me :)

  21. Kele!!! I loved hearing about your week, about the progress you're making with your blog and sponsorships, and just the love that you've been getting. And to be honest, it's a reflection of all the wonderful positivity and love you've been putting out there! I seriously am always happy whenever I see your name pop up anywhere online -- whether on Twitter, in my feed, or comments or whatever. You are a joy to be around and work with and I'm so glad and grateful that you're a part of my blogging journey and a blogging friend! :)

  22. It was a journey finding my "blogging" way through Instant Mommie (first) and now here - and there are still a ton of things I want to do (like create a New Reader page), but I'm happy with the path the blog is on now!!! Im glad you didn't get bored as you see me find my way in my older posts, lol! Have a good day M!

  23. Some wishes I don't do the 4 week thing but these are some things I really want to change as far as my lifestyle goes in general, hence the 4 weeks!! TY for your comment!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh you! Enough of that. No, but seriously, that makes my day and I could have asked for a better group to be apart of. It is so hard sometimes for people to "fit" in with seasoned bloggers and that is something special you have!!! Thank you, my friend!!! I have to check out all the grad-itude posts later today, I'm so excited that its finally here!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Haha, that's so exciting about your twitter rockstar-ness! But based on everything you've been doing, you definitely deserve it!

  26. I like that you're working to build a habit with your weekly wishes- that is an excellent idea! And I gotta say, I appreciate your re-tweets for me- you don't have to do it, but you do, and that is why you ROCK!
