The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.


About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

Race Anxiety & What The F Was I Thinking?!

What a day.

And I am a dense brick. I did something stupid today.

I went on a bike ride.

Yeah, a little bike ride to burn off some pre-race jitters. Keep loose, yea no big deal.

Yeah. I didn't pick the best location. I dropped my car off at the 1st shuttle drop off tomorrow and decided to bike as far as I could to make it easier for the BF to pick me when he got off work. Yeah. I totally forgot that the car drop off was just a little farther and mountainous then what I was thinking of....

SO, if you saw me pushing my bike uphill on Highway 21, and cruising downhill (no pedaling for 6 miles -SIX - so worth it) without a helmet...

That was me.

Sometimes I need someone to tell me that I am not thinking clearly. Because sometimes - I Don't.

Sometimes I just need to learn my own lessons. 

For the Lake Lowell Marathon, I WON'T be doing something stupid.

I learned my lesson. But I did burn off some much needed anxiety. Which was soooo needed.

The "Rooster Tail." And I got to see a ton of Woodpeckers on the way back. Usually, I see one here and there and on my "venture" I got to see at least 10. So cool.

Have you entered my giveaway yet? There are more giveaways coming for everyone!

  1. Eek, that bike ride sounds a little more challenging than optimal! That blister doesn't look good either :/ Still, sometimes we do things that seem sensible at the time and I guess life is about making mistakes :) At least you managed the jitters!

  2. I feel better after DOING the bike ride, but regret the location/and wearing the socks I did, which are going to be replaced ASAP. I thought I was helping myself when I think I may have been hurting. Oh well. The past is past. :-)
