30 BEFORE 30

WHOA. I’ve not long just entered my twenties but I’m already thinking about turning 30? Ah! It has to be done though because time seems to fly by ever so swiftly these days.

Just after I turned 21 I started thinking about dreams and goals I wanted to attain in life. After much thought and inspiration, I decided to make a 30 before 30 list, just so I can have a dedicated list of things I am committed to completing before I complete the third decade of my life. Really and truly, I should call it my “list for living”, however, it’s just a small portion of that.

If you can somehow help me complete some of the things on my list please contact me as I will be eternally grateful, and if not, join me regardless as I make my dreams come true!

Do you have a life list? If so, what’s on it? If not, get to making one now!
