30 Before 30

Today is my 26th birthday and reflecting back on the past 6 months since graduation I have steered off course. I have become lazy and stagnant without the obligation of studying, reading, and tests filling my schedule. In order to grow I need to shake things up and turn the Netflix OFF.

In light of this revelation I have decided to take action and create a 30 before 30 list of goals and activities I will complete before my 30th birthday. My hope is that these goals will help me become more intentional about my life and give me the push I need to make things happen.


Start: October 16th, 2015

End: October 16th, 2019

  1. Get a Passport
  2. Travel to Washington, D.C.
  3. Learn calligraphy
  4. Find a home church
  5. Go on a beach trip with my sister and her kids
  6. Complete The 7 Baby Steps

  8. Take 8 road trips to different cities in North Carolina and surrounding states (Ashville, Greenville, Chicago so far on my list)
  9. Travel to Europe
  10. Visit a winery
  11. Read the entire bible
  12. Read at least 5-10 books that enrich all aspects of my life in 2016
    • including: spirituality, finances, career, personal + intellectual development, health, and rest/enjoyment.
  13. …and in 2017
  14. …and in 2018
  15. …and in 2019
  16. Watch Sabrina, Funny Face, and Casablanca
  17. Cook Thanksgiving dinner

  19. Start a Ladies Bible Study using Open Your Bible by, #SheReadsTruth
  20. Go on a camping trip
  21. Become fluent in Spanish
  22. Attend a Hillsong concert
  23. Complete The Contentment Challenge

This whole week I have been stressing about completing my list of goals. This morning I decided that having a few blank spaces gives me room to meditate and pray on some great goals to add later to the list.

My first item to cross off the list is to learn calligraphy. I purchased an online class and calligraphy kit from here. I cannot wait to make my own lettering for images on my blog.  After I complete the class I will post a review for anyone interested.

Does anyone have any suggestions for goals I could add to my list? What goals would you put on your 30 before 30 list?
