First things first (for those of you who get email updates): sorry about the post mix-up on Friday! This post was scheduled to go up then, but I didn’t have it quite ready (and forgot that I had dated it to go up while I was away at a conference.) Thanks for the messages about it not working – everything should be good from now on! This is a learning experience for all of us. 🙂
This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for about two months, now. While I was on the cottage vacation back in August, enjoying my 28th birthday and reflecting on my life I decided that I would try to draft up a 30 Before 30 list. That is, a list of 30 things that I want to accomplish before I reach the age of 30*. I had been playing around with the idea before that day, but I wasn’t completely committed to it until I had that quiet time to reflect on a day that felt pretty significant. (I don’t know why 28 feels so much different than 27.) So, my friends, here it is! If there is anything on this list you want to help me accomplish – speak up! I’d love to have you join me on this journey.
*I want to be clear. These are things that I would like to accomplish…right now…at this point in my life. I don’t want to feel pressure to complete these items, but writing lists helps keep me focused. If there is something on this list that I just don’t feel like doing anymore – I’ll probably change it to something else. I want to experience or learn 30 new things that I am happy with and that will make me feel as if I’ve accomplished something in 2 years. I think offering it publicly will help me feel, at least slightly, more accountable.
Drinking game: take a shot every time you see the number 30.
