Recently I wrote a post about saying yes to myself more. I’m working hard at treating myself better and experiencing more of what life has to offer. I saw something on a blog recently at stuck with me.
Have you heard of a 30 Before 30 list? The idea is that it’s thirty things you’d like to do before you turn 30. Now, I have an informal bucket list, but having a bucket list is a little vague for me. I’m a five year plan kind of girl, not a life plan kind of girl. I turn 25 this year, so a 30 Before 30 list is kind of perfect.
Weirdly, coming up with thirty goals for the next few years has been harder than I thought! I mean, I went zip-lining this year, but I can’t really put that on the list since I’ve already done it. I had “take pictures in front of the donut mural in my town, but I accomplished that before making my official 30 Before 30 list. So what can I put?
So far, I have these:
1. Stand Up Paddleboarding
2. Take a Dance Class
3. Get Makeup Done professionally
4. Rock climbing
5. My first pedicure
6. Stay in an unusual AirBnB
7. Paint your own pottery
Yeah, not a lot on the list yet. I have a few friends giving me suggestions, and whenever something pops into my head I jot it down. I expect that the list will change over the next few years, but that’s okay. I’m flexible. (Both figuratively and literally thanks to my genetic disorder.)
I guess this is the result of some sort of quarter lifer crisis. Or maybe it’s new mom brain. Maybe it’s because my mental health is better than it has been in years and I’m excited about life. Who knows?
I’ll be sharing my final list once it’s done, and of course I’ll be updating you all on my thirty before thirty experience. Who knows, maybe I’ll find a new passion….or at least a new hobby! I’ve got a few friends roped into the activities that I already have on my list, so I’m going to be starting this sooner rather than later!
Do you have a 30 Before 30 list? What about a bucket list? What’s on your list?
