Choose What Works {Living Life on Purpose Wrap-up}

October 31


This is Day 31, the final day, of the 31 Days to a Better Life: Living Life on Purpose series.  


31 Days Living Life on Purpose - This Mom's Delight

Four bloggers participated in the 31 Days to a Better Life: Living Life on Purpose.  Not only did we share our purposeful tips to you, we learned from each other.  We were also encouraged in our walks as busy women (and moms).  If you’re like me, you had every intention of following along every day, but life happens.  This is your chance to visit the days you missed.

During the 31 Days to a Better Life: Living Life on Purpose, we had four areas you can live life on purpose, which include:

    This sounds like it was a really great series. Just by looking at the title of some of these I can see how beneficial they could be if one would start to apply some of these tips little by little. Such a great idea for all these different bloggers to give their input!

    years ago, I started on a financial journey. One of the reasons I started my blog is because I was in a terrible place financially and wanted to better myself. As I paid off things, as my credit score grew, I also grew.
