As I’m getting older I’m definitely starting to think more about what I want to achieve in my days. Whilst I still have youth on my side, I want to make sure I feel like I made the most of it when I’m old and rocking that blue-rinse hairdo that I’m always on about. One thing I’ve learned in my twenties so far is that life is short, precious, and by gosh you have to make the most of it. With that in mind, in January I thought I would collate a list of things I’d like to achieve before I turn 30.
So I started doing a bit of research online about what people tend to put on these lists… and after ruling out thing’s I’m about 90% sure I’m not going to do unless a crazed madman made me (bungee jump anyone?), and things that as a self employed artist I doubt I’ll be able to afford (backpack around the world) I became a little bit stumped…
…Then taking into consideration all of the amazing thing’s I’ve been fortunate enough to experience in my life so far (surfing in Hawaii, visiting Graceland, gambling in Las Vegas, going in a helicopter, swimming with dolphins ((and a shark!)) setting up my own business, getting my work published in Vogue ((Italian Vogue Bambini Magazine, but still!!!)) … I could go on, but I’ve got a feeling I should stop now) my list gets even shorter. I’ve been blessed in that I’ve managed to hit up a lot of things people have on their bucket lists for years and I am truly grateful for every moment; I cannot wait to see what comes my way next!
But that leaves me with my list — of which I have 20 things written down thus far. So I thought I would ask you all for some wonderful suggestions to add to it 😀 I’m trying to find things that are less obvious, but that’s not as easy as it sounds. I was going to make this all beautiful to share with you, but as it’s unfinished I will share it the boring way and recreate it when we’ve found 30!
Without further adieu….
30 things to do before 30
I think it’s looking good, but it still has a bit to go!
Do you have a 30 before 30 list? Or a birthday / bucket list you’d like to share?
I’ve decided that monumental age goals are a lot more fun because there is less time and more of a challenge involved. If I made a bucket list, I would procrastinate forever! Baring that in mind, I am on a small budget and the goal needs to be achievable as close to home as possible. I’ve penciled in Europe for the moment because that’s what I can afford to do 🙂 Last year was phenomenal, but it totally killed my savings! Oh, and you might notice I have already made a start at some of the items on my list, but it’s not cheating because I’ve had it since January 😛
Other things contemplated include: getting a fancy manicure, learn how to bake something new (I just mastered the mini donut!), read 5 books or more, cook at least one healthy meal a week from scratch, and spend one month being guilt free. I’m not sure how I could achieve that last one, but I love the sound of it!
If you have any suggestions or goals you’d like to reach I’d love to hear about them!
Let’s finish this list 😀
