29 Things I want to do before my 30th Birthday


Today is my 29th Birthday and I'm so happy and content with where I am in life. Which took longer than I would have expected but I am grateful for the journey. I've started making steps in the right direction months ago and I am starting to see some of my hard work pay off. It's really inspiring me to continue in the way that I started. I'm not where I want to be but I'm on my way and that's okay with me. Below is my bucket list of 29 things I want to do before my 30th Birthday in no particular order except for the first one. It's huge for me. These are some things that have been on my heart for awhile so now I'm sharing with you so that I have some accountability over the next 12 months.

The List

  1. First and Foremost I want to move from being a full-time employee to becoming a full-time entrepreneur. 
  2. Become a better swimmer.
  3. Learn how to surf. (I have to do #2 before 3.)
  4. Decorate and organize my apartment per the vision I see in my head.
  5. Go on at least 1 mission trip to anywhere in the world.
  6. Take a vacation with my family.

That's it. Those are 29 things I want to do before my 30th Birthday. These are things that have crossed my mind some way or another and I want to try to make them happen.
