Thirty Things to Do Before I Turn 30

Woah guys, I’m 29. Today marks the first day of the last year in my twenties. Seriously let me say it again. Woah.

Yesterday I shared some of the things I learned over the past year and what I’m most looking forward to over this next year in my life. Today, it’s all about what I want to ACCOMPLISH. Think of this as my before 30 “Bucket List”. Thirty things I’m going to do before I turn 30…and it officially has me stoked for the next 365 days.

Some are silly, some are a stretch, some are a little too real and some are just for fun. I want this next year to be about pushing myself out of my comfort zone and making tangible memories that I can learn from in more ways than one. Now obviously, I want to and am going to do more than this short list…but why not jot down a few of the exciting things I want to cross off?

Ready to see what made the list? Checkout the video below and then keep reading for a few of the reasons I’m deciding to embrace the whole idea of getting older!

Why I’m Actually Excited to Get Older…

One. Another year is something to appreciate. Dude, you might get a little softer around the middle or a little more wrinkled around the eyes but your’e getting another year of life. Be grateful!

Two. How could I not be excited for another year to totally kick some ass? I’m so excited to not only cross things off this 30 before 30 list but to make some big moves for my business

Three. I can’t wait to keep learning more about myself. While I am convinced 28 was the best year for my own self discovery, I feel like 29 might be my new favorite year. I already have some big things planned that I think will serve as some pretty awesome learning opportunities.

Four. Men might have figured out a way to get more attractive with age (but seriously, so do women – we’re crazy) BUT, I’m pretty excited for some of the things that come with age. Outside of wisdom and all of that jazz, there are parts of being a women that I appreciate more and more as my body ages. I feel empowered now more than ever to take care of myself and treat my body like the temple that it is!

Five. In 364 days, I’ll be 30! I’ve been dying to be in my dirty thirties forever – I seriously can’t wait to take on a new decade and totally crush it!

    I love this! It’s wonderful to see your approach on birthdays as a wonderful thing to celebrate rather than something to dread. We need more posts like this to encourage women to feel great about turning another year older rather than the opposite. Also, I love the whole “dirty thirties!”
