July 26th is All or Nothing Day. But what does that mean, exactly? It means that today we should push our inhibitions aside and go for broke. Do something that you’ve been meaning to do, but haven’t had the gumption. Take a deep breath, and go with your gut! If you’re having trouble figuring out how to celebrate, here are a few options.
1. Go skydiving
Not my thing at ALL, but a lot of my friends have this on their bucket list. I personally have no desire to find myself hurtling towards the ground, saved only by some sort of parachute strapped to my back, but hey, that’s just me! If you are looking for something BIG, exciting, and adrenaline soaked, go jump out of a plane.
2. Buy a lottery ticket
Gamble a little. Go all in. If you’re gonna put your money on the line, today’s the day.
3. Tell someone how you feel
This one’s heavy. Oftentimes we wait for the “perfect” time to tell a special someone how we truly feel, and the tragic thing about that idea is that sometimes that “perfect” time never comes. Today, rid yourself of excuses and go out on a limb. You will never know what the future may bring or how someone may react to your declaration, but being open and truthful is so much better than keeping it all to yourself and asking “what if.”
4. Eat something amazing
Treat yo self. Have something you wouldn’t have on a normal day. Your favorite sandwich. Your favorite dessert. Your favorite kind of chocolate. You get the picture. Splurge a little.
5. Make a career move
This takes guts. If you’re unhappy in your job, this can lead to emotional stress as well as physical pain. It’s hard, but if this is you, it is time to shop around. I know, you’ve been avoiding it because you’re afraid of change, but today is the day to put yourself back out there in the job market. Motivate yourself and go for it!
Now, I’m no financial advisor, but if you have found yourself in a stable place and are looking for a way to grow your assets, talk to a professional about a smart next move. Investing is a bold move for your future.
7. Say what’s on your mind
Speak up! Today is your opportunity to say how you really feel or speak out for something that means a lot to you. Express yourself to the fullest.
