Yep, that's right. I turn 30 at the end of the month. June 29th, to be exact. (Yes, I am crying as I type this) Since this is a big deal (to me), I wanted to mark the event with small goals. Kind of like my goodbye to the 20's.
To ease into my 30's, I thought I would borrow an idea from Nicole at Making It Lovely. She had created a list of 30 things she wanted to do before she turns 30, and called it her 30 Before Thirty. Well, seeing I only have 28 days, I had to narrow mine down.
1.) Organize our basement
Since we took care of our basement backing up problem, it is now time to put the clutter away.
2.) Be able to run a 2 miles without stopping
I can run between a half mile to a mile without stopping, but I want to push myself further.
3.) Lose 10lbs
I have already lost around 5-6lbs since the beginning of the year and kept it off. It would be oh-so great to lose a little more.
4.) Have a garage sale
The date has been picked! Now I REALLY have to get my basement in order!
5.) Start my own Etsy shop.
I have tried this before, but did not devote much time to it. Now, I have decided that I need to try this again and make the effort to make it work! I have tons and tons of art just sitting at home collecting dust. They deserve to be hung on walls and enjoyed!
So that's, that. I am not quite sure what I am trying to achieve here. I think like many others, there is a certain pressure to feel that 30 means you are "old". I remember through the years people telling me how they want children before 30 or want to be married before 30. One thing I realized is there is no way to plan your life around an age. What's the hurry?? Why 30?? Fear not people! It's what you make of it! So live it up!
I am going to miss my 20's. They were very good to me and taught me a lot. But I can't wait to see what 30 will bring!
How have you celebrated your 30th, or how would some of you like to?
