Inspired by my friend Sam —and spurred on by my rapidly approaching 25th birthday (quarter-life crisis?)—I decided to create a “30 by 30” list! I’ve lived an incredibly blessed life. Yet, I’ve realized that it’s a bit too easy to fall into a comfortable routine during busy times. Hopefully this will inspire me to shake it up a bit more often!
Here are two-and-a-half dozen to-dos that I want to tackle within the next five years:
Be in a wedding as part of the bridal party (we’ll consider the bride part later!)
Go on a trip with my whole immediate family now that we’re all adults
Ride in a hot air balloon
Do at least one pull-up
Teach someone how to do something really meaningful and new
Learn how to surf
Make one week complaint-free
Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity
Do something truly spontaneous
Take a trapeze class
Be able to turn my brain off and just “be” during corpse pose in yoga or be able to meditate without a wandering mind
Climb a mountain
This weekend, I’m starting to tackle number one—my sister Sarah and I are co-hosting my sister Amy’s bridal shower/bachelorette party! Since Amy and her fiance Joe are headed to Italy for their honeymoon, we’re having an Italian theme. Salute and talk to you after the festivities!
