Today, I am officially one year away from 40. I’m planning on making the last year of my 30’s my best year yet.
Here’s my list for 39:
- Mail a handwritten letter each month. More months than not, but still needs work.
Try the bullet journal method & don’t obsess about making it pretty.
- Get my health indicator numbers inline. Halfway there.
- Finish an entire coloring book. Didn’t color much this year.
See Hamilton on Broadway.
- Take a firearm safety/shooting class. I kept meaning to and then kept putting it off. It means something different to me now. Don’t know if I can.
Try paddle boarding.
- Smoke zero cigarettes. I was cigarette free more days than not. Trying again this year.
Try a new food. Run/walk a 5K.
- Run/walk a 10K.
- Run/walk a Half Marathon.
- Take a family vacation – just the 4 of us.
- Knit myself a sweater.
Read 30 books. Purge craft space – donate supplies that won’t be used. Finish quilt top. If by finish you mean give up and get rid of it in my craft purge. (It went to a good home.) Buy a new lens for my camera.
- Have family pictures taken.
- Continue to practice unapologetic self-confidence. This will be an ongoing struggle for me and this year was especially hard in that regard, but I think I see some serious progress.
- Go on a picnic.
- Take the kids camping. Even if it’s in the backyard.
Buy a new box of high quality colored pencils. Learn to back up boat trailer quickly & accurately.
- Attend Mass.
Take a break from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. for at least one month.
- Abstain from purchasing any sock yarn. I shouldn’t set unrealistic goals.
- Create a photo album for each of the kids.
Get a mole check. Quit drinking Diet Dr. Pepper.And then started again. Have to try again! Establish a regular sleep/wake time.
- Buy a record player and some records. This is still on my list.
Cook more. Listen to my gut.
- Celebrate my people. I think I did an okay job of this, but I also think it’s something I can do better.
Update master list of home projects. Find a project/cause that could benefit from my time & talents and donate.
- Make my bed. I did do this most days. It’s easy, it makes me feel better, why I don’t just do it EVERYDAY is beyond me.
Last year, I made a list of 38 things I wanted to accomplish while 38. I didn’t manage to do them all, but you can read about that here.
