30 Things for Year 30

In one week I will be 30!

I had to pause for a minute to let that sink in. 30 years old. What a milestone.

My life has looked very different from what I imagined it would be when I was younger. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would be where I am right now. It’s funny how life works out.

As I think about the year ahead, I’m filled with optimism. I feel like my life is only beginning, like I’m just now discovering who I am and stepping into the person I was meant to be.

To celebrate year 30, I created a bucket list with 30 things I would like to accomplish in this next year. Some things I’ve done before. Some I’ve only dreamed of doing. Some I never thought I would ever do. I’m looking forward to stepping out of my comfort zone, having some new experiences, and maximizing this life I have been given.

Cheers to 30 years and many more!
