If you don’t already know me, I love making lists and nothing gives me more satisfaction than crossing things off.
A couple weeks ago I turned 24, which isn’t a big deal, but the number definitely hit me in the face. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel 24 nor is it old, but now more than ever I feel like I am being required to face adulthood. Reflecting back on these past twenty-three years, I have realized just how fortunate I have been to experience some once in a lifetime type of experiences. Looking at the year ahead I hope to add to my collection of experiences. And what better way to start than to create a list of the things I hope to experience by my next birthday. Time tends to fly by and we get caught up with work or school and lose our dreams along the way. For this reason, I think it’s important to make a list or even a vision board that you see regularly to remind you of all the things you want to accomplish! So being the responsible “adult” that I am (lol) I couldn’t wait to start literally making my list and start checking things off.
Think of this as a mini bucket list, and if you want to create your own please feel free to use my list as inspiration!
This trip is already booked and I am sooo excited for this girls trip!
