This week marks 6 months of living in Tallahassee and the halfway point to my 30th birthday. I look back on my younger self and remember those promises I made. I always thought I’d be living some mystical life abroad, and while I do not live with my parents, I don’t consider Tallahassee to be that place either.
I’ve had plenty moments in my younger years where I’ve said, “Just you wait, I’m going to do_____” (insert whatever action phrase you want here)
While I do live a semi-adventure life, these past few years I have spent trying to “become an adult”. I went from discussing the best happy hour deal to what time of health insurance I get. It all comes with the progression of time, but as I am rapidly approaching 30, I often find myself questioning did I do everything I was supposed to in my twenties.
Since moving to Tallahassee, I have found myself to be more at home. It feels like growing up in the Mid-West, something familiar. With the start of a new job, I have found that I have more free time (no more working weekends) and a community I am interested in getting to know.
Experiencing my last year of my twenties in a new city, I created a #30before30 list. I really want to make sure that the last year of this decade was one for the books. Some of my list has already been completed, so I wanted to highlight the projects I am still working on.
- Blog– I have always wanted to blog. I started one for my time in Burkina Faso, and tried to revamp it after coming back in 2012. However, I always became too busy to really dedicate the time or energy.
- Reduce Debt– I feel like this is everyone’s goals. I want to be tied less to “the man” and more to my own money. I’m more adventurous when I don’t feel obligated to make a living.
- Business Owner– I recently started this new adventure of becoming an entrepreneur. I am in the non-profit business or “for the people” as some would say. Never thought of dabbling in the for profit world. Plus multiple streams of income will help with cutting back on my debt.
- Get Healthy– Seriously- I have avoided this for far too long! It’s not about losing weight, but about creating a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
While all these goals could fit anyone, it’s more about getting outside my comfort zone. I like the challenge that these #30before30 goals present.
Have any of you made any BIG goals recently? What where they?
You’ll have to check back in December to see how my #30before30 challenge went!
